Re: Diagnose this lude *video*

why would u go buy a prelude with a CEL light on and its an auto. But for how much? how many miles does it have? But it looks a lil beat up and alot of money is probably gonna be spent to fix the CEL light, change the tail lights, fix that bumper, and probably gonna have to fix the tranny too.

Re: Diagnose this lude *video*

well automatic preludes are known to fail and always needs to be replaced. CEL is Check Engine Light it was on during ur video so i would first find out what codes its throwing out and u should test drive the car to see if the transmission is slipping or not. Also when he changes the catalytic converter make sure he changes the O2 sensors as well.

Automatic trannys are almost guaranteed to fail no matter how many times you rebuild or replace them.

Re: Diagnose this lude *video*

I was like eh the engine sounds fine, but when they showed the auto Tranny, lol dam wat a bummer. The H22 needs to be married up to a 5speed only in my opinion. The car is Fun a hell to shift at 8k...But 4k for the price is ok for a auto lude.

John, you have a 4th gen though?
4th gens aren't the ones with the problems. 5th gens are.
