Hey
I just did a simple engine swap on my 98 prelude
drove it for a 3 weeks, I was out of town and my brother deciced to take the car for a spin.... he dosent know how to drive stick well...
all he told me that he was trying to do a burnout doen the street, he redlined in first gear and the car shut off and didnt start back...
I tried starting it, the started is kicking in but its not turning over....
any ideas of what could the problem be.??

thanx

I vote timing belt and if that is the problem and you have been trying crank it over and over....you are going to need new valves by now for sure....

Re: 98 prelude wont start...... HELP!!

I agree with my other member that your timing took a dump .Take of the distributor cap then crank engine see if the rotor moves if it does the belt isn't broken maybe jumped some teeth and then you have an idea what to do next .Good luck .keep us posted with problem.John
