Re: tune ups

In case you didn't know:

Timing belt is supposed to be right before/at 100k. So if that hasn't been done yet you should do that 1st w/ the manual tensioner mod and water pump.

Get a oem or msd cap and rotor, the bosch type cheap one's are junk.

Get OEM or Iridium IX plugs, nothing else would ever go in my lude unless boost.

If you don't have an oil leak you might just want to get a valve cover gasket set and not all of the gaskets and seals.

EGR valve and port cleaning would probably be a good idea.

Valve adjustment is a must if you know it's been over 50k, it should just cost an hour of shop time if you go somewhere that knows what they're doing. You could give them your new valve cover gasket for them to put on after the adjustment.

Doing all of the suggested things would be ideal though. I used to be a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" kinda guy. Only after having a lot of problems with with the lude did I start doing preventative maintenance so that if I had an issue I would know what it wasn't. You should definitely do all of it... eventually. Prioritize what you think needs to be done in what order and do it over time.

Re: tune ups

Yeah do all fluids and valve adjustment.. I would also replace the seals as soon as you could

Cap and rotor is cheap.. I'd go ahead and get it and replace spark plugs and wires

I would replace the fuel filter too.. It's cheap and easy to do


Just save up and do the full maintenance.. Your car will love it and will last.. It might be a lot right now but will save u in the long run

If u r strapped for money then do the big things first

Prelude2Doom is on a distinguished road
Re: tune ups

Like mortifiedvictim said the timing belt first if its never been changed. That can cause a lot of damage if it snaps while your on the road. $10 now saves you $100 later they say...or something like that anyways.

Re: tune ups

Might need a Radiator flush (every 24k), check the ac unit and the power steering too. On Hondas, you have to watch out for timing always, people think these cars have timing chains and RARELY change the belt.
