Icon10 2001 Prelude SH Question

I'm sure there are 9 million posts on this, but I kind of want a collective answer per say.

I am purchasing a 2001 Prelude SH today.
I just want to know what are the big things to look for. Like certain cars always have the same issues at such and such mileage. speaking of...it has 99,686 miles on it. AEM cold air system, Full body exhaust. It is the original owner, he is a 47 year old man who changed the oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months and it is very very clean. The interior is very nice and the exterior only has 1 spot i need to put some paint on, but its not noticeable unless you get up close and look really hard lol

so yeah. what are the things i need to do ASAP and what should be done/looked for very soon.

Here is a few pics.

It looks like in addition to some intake and exhaust mods its also has a altered suspension and different wheels. I would pass on this one and try to get a unmodified version of the car This is because a modded car is a sure sign of a car thats most likely had a hard life and such mods and other acts of re-engendering on the car may end up given you some mechanical and possibly some legal problems in the future.Very often people who sell their modded cars ,remove their after market stuff knowing that such mods scare some perspective buyers away.The SH Prelude comes from the factory with special engine,transmission and suspension mods and many after market mods installed on Preludes in general tend to disrupt rather then improve the cars over all ""on the street"" performance and shorten the cars life span.

Re: 2001 Prelude SH Question

first piece of advise....^^^^^DO NOT LISTEN TO A WORD HE SAYS^^^^^

now that thats out of the way, see if he kept any reciepts, run the vin#, call honda and have them run the VIN# to see if all the recalls have been done, check for leaks (of any kind), check for rust in the normal spots, test drive it and run it through all the gears and make sure it shifts fine, make sure that there are no CEL's and if they are run them. honestly, it doesnt look like it has exhaust, pretty sure thats stock. it has 18's for sure, and i dont know what kinda eye sight ole robby boy has, must be super secret xray vision to tell the suspension has been modified, but being 18's its going to fill up the wheel well a bit more, but it DOES NOT look lowered. check for the tags on all the panels; fenders, doors, etc. and make sure they match. RUN A CARFAX!

also it might or might not be a SH, it has the spoiler, but the sides arent painted. the rear lip is, so that might be a sign of some sort of previous body damage. does it have courtesy light on the doors, does a ATTS light pop up when you turn the key??? those will be a dead give away that its a SH, and the vin# will also tell you, fer sure.

all in all, it looks to be a pretty clean lude. its got a bit of bumper sag, but thats easily fixed. 100k miles is a baby. just treat her good and she will last you a looooooong time.


the question of all questions though, whats he asking for it???

LOL not listening to him is dually noted. First off, he was asking 7k for it, but i talked him down to 5k since he is actually pretty desperate. really nice guy, he has had other offers but has turned them down cuz he is true to the first come first serve thing. and he also knows i am in love with the car.

here is the carfax vin number info
2001 HONDA PRELUDE SH
VIN: JHMBB61#########
COUPE
2.2L L4 PFI DOHC 16V
FRONT WHEEL DRIVE

It has been in 0 accidents. none what so ever, not even a fender bender. the reason it has the unpainted side skirts is because he thought it went better with the rims and interior so he ordered a base model set.

All the SH stuff is there, just non painted side skirts due to his preference.
The rims are 18" and only rubbed once when i drove it. That was due to me flying over a dip that didn't have a sign posted. and it was only the rear not front

I did do extensive looking at the vehicle. and the only 2 spots where rust are at is the passenger rear wheel wheel...and it is very very tiny, it was hard to see on a walk by.

No CEL's at all. I love the V-Tec...its pure sex.

the exhaust is there, these pics were taken before it was installed. He had the exhaust in his garage in the box still and wasn't going to put it on until someone was serious about buying it. So if he had to go last resort and give it to a dealer or something he could just sell off the exhaust.

how do you fix bumper sag?

Re: 2001 Prelude SH Question

you'll probably buy this since you already love it, more power to you. I made the mistake of buying a lemon-lude SH and it wasn't that much more expensive to swap a motor. check to make sure, there are no leaks, our ludes can leak in the rear due to clogged moonroof reliefs. it looks clean to me, but i'm not sure about the 18" wheels, looks like it belongs in the monster truck arena. Lastly, have a mechanic/friend go with you to look over it one more time just to be sure. good luck i really like white cars with black interiors.

Yeah i am a huge fan of the white with black rims and interior myself. I have a buddy going with me today to to a final run over before i drop the cash on it. He actually owns a 2001 prelude himself so he knows what to look for as well.

First thing will be getting those rims replaced. I already have a set of Flat Black 16" ENKEI EDR9 rims with either Toyo Proxes 4 or Nitto Neo Gen's I have been eyeballing. Found a deal to get 4 rims and tires for $856, I am sure there are cheaper places so I am looking, but i like those rims.

Re: 2001 Prelude SH Question

damn for 5g its pretty much a steal with the mileage and no accidents. ludes burn oil, so get used to carrying around a extra qt to keep her topped off. the trunk leaks are more commonly caused by the tail light gaskets more so the moon roof reliefs. both a very easy fix. you might need to chandge the oil cooler o-ring if you notice a few drips near the driver side tire, also a easy fix. very common though.

as far as the bumper sag, also easy, ill send you some info on it in a pm, so i dont clog the thread up too bad.

congrats on a steal! your are going to love it, i promise you. like i said though, keep up with her and she will pay you pack ten fold!

the VIN you listed is the best way to tell if it is a SH..
JHMB614 is a non SH
JHMB615 is a SH

5th Preludes in general don't burn excessive oil .My car has over 140k miles on it and I don't have any oil in my trunk.The average 5th gen Prelude owner who does not mod their car and doesn't precipitate on web sites like this so you get a biased view of the reliability of the car from listening to people who mod and push their car to, and in some cases, beyond its design limits.If you end up getting a car with a potentially spent engine like biglegs that burns excessive oil then your initial investment in your car may be only the start . I hope you have deep pockets.

You are so stupid it is incredible, first of all 5th generation preludes do burn excessive oil and tend to have very bad piston rings. Second of all most of the preludes on here only have a couple i/h/e bolt-ons and that has nothing to do with them burning oil or not. Third of all I am going to laugh when you start having to carry around oil in your car because it burns a bunch of oil. Fourth off I hope your wheels fall off of your car while you are going 60+ mph for all the misinformation you put on here.

Re: 2001 Prelude SH Question

go away robert, seriously. im tired of having to deal with you. you are banned on every other prelude forum for a reason.

i had to lmao at the "potentially spent" engine comment. i guarantee my engine is, if not the best maintained, one of the best maintained motors on this and any other prelude sight, hands down. you seriously are a fool kid, and im suprised you are even allowed to post here anymore. i bet your time is coming though.

its a high rev inline four enine doing exactly what it was designed to do, so your dumb ass comment about pushing it beyond its limits is just plain stupid.

plus, i highly, HIGHLY doubt you dont burn oil. ALL H22's run rich from the factory, which causes them to burn oil quicker than normal. its a proven HONDA fact. call any honda. PERIOD.

im tired of having to read your nonsense. you are a joke. PERIOD.

LOL @ keeganhmorgan... Yeah preludes burns oil like crazy I know i own 3 of them and all had the same result. The prelude looks great from what I can see and 99k miles is not bad at all for 5k I would go for it...

Re: 2001 Prelude SH Question

I'd bring it to a mechanic and have a compression test. See if the cats still ok and if the EGR valves have been cleaned etc...

FRM sleeves in the block gradually wear down piston rings and oil creeps by. it's inevitable. nice try

If I had the money to spare, I would offer to buy it from her because its in such good condition. The way she drives it ,the last time the engine was reved above 4k rpm was before most of you were born.
A car thats been babyed and not spent is the car you want to get especially if your someone like me who wants to push its limits on a regular basis!

you are a walking conrtadiction. you say that you shouldnt push these engines to their limits, come into my Euro-R thread and say im doing everything i can to push my car, say i have a potentially spent engine and advise not beating on the motor but here you go saying you push your car to its limits on a regular basis. once again you fail.

also, dont try to act high and mighty because you are old. most the kids on here that, as you say "werent born before the engine was revved past 4k", know a HELL of alot more about these cars, and life in general than you do. hell, KEEGAN is 19 i think, and look what he has done and is doing. im not sure how old SYN is but look at what he is doing. OGS, well hes old...i keed, but look at what he has done. what have you done? squat. make a fool of yourself trolling prelude forums.....kudos buddy. guess you win that trophy.
