Problem With The Prelude.

I was driving home just now and while I was in 3rd gear driving normally my prelude suddenly dropped in speed (felt like I downshifted, but didnt) so I had to gas it to restore the lost speed. I also tried changing to 4th to see if it'd go away but it also happened it fourth. What could be the possible cause of this?

Re: Problem With The Prelude.

Why not? He's pointing out good advice, nothing wrong with that.

Using your logic, there was really no need for you to say what you said. And no reason for me to post this. Ok, I'm done now.

All he is doing is raising his post count by just saying he agrees without really backing it up in any way. People do it all the time. I do not agree with it by any means, but I also avoid saying anything about it unless it gets out of hand.

And from your logic there was no need for you to say what you said to him, like you said. So why say it?

Me on the other hand. I'm just going to say. Stay on topic or stfu.
