Engine cuts out at stops and on turns...

I have a 2000 Prelude Sh, I dont know if its the original engine beause it had an M2Y4 tranny in it, and I had it replaced with a M2S4 which bolted up fine. My problem is that when I come to a complete stop sometimes the car will drop rpms below idle and stall, then be perfectly fine after restarting it. Also when going straight it has plenty of power until i take a turn, it then also loses all power until I straighten out and gas it. Any help would be awesome, Im new to hondas.

i dont think it is the original motor but i am not sure. the m2s4 trans is out of a 4th gen prelude with an h23a1.(i have 2 of them). As for the power loss through turns i have no idea what to tell you.

Re: Prelude noob (SH engine power cuts out on turns)

turn your key to the ACC position, do you see an ATTS light? if not, check for a bulb in the cluster. It sounds like your ATTS system is disabling in turns, which could be the result of a wrong tranny.

Yes sir it does have the light, and right now its stays lit up the whole time. The guys at the shop ( a honda specialized shop) supposedly, said that the h23 tranny would work fine no matter what i told them of my limited knowledge.

Re: Prelude noob (SH engine power cuts out on turns)

i thought that you needed to get the SH tranny in an SH because of the ATTS pump. BUT while working with a base lude you could swap an h22 with any tranny

that was a gleaming example of the united states education system




OP: if somehow you still have the original SH motor in your car, you need an M2U4 transmission for your ATTS to ever work. You can't use this trans with a base H22 Engine so be sure of what you have before you start buying parts

Re: Prelude noob (SH engine power cuts out on turns)

Ok thanks, is there any way to visually tell which H22a4 I have, (the sh/ not sh) so I dont end up buying a M2U4 without having to?

Re: Prelude noob (SH engine power cuts out on turns)

there is not enough info to help... first lets make sure its a SH. Does your Vin # starts off "JHMBB615"?

Edit: Also if the car is truly a SH and the tranny has been swapped then there had to have been a plate installed where ATTS unit was; hence why you can drive the car. We need more info to help. Can be anything wrong...

PS: if your car is engine is loosing power what makes you think it's the tranny?

Re: Prelude noob (SH engine power cuts out on turns)

I ran the vin prior to this, It is an SH. I dont think its the transmission, but if its the SH engine in it, and they say the m2s4 just bolted up to it, then it may be conflicting with the atts, may be a non sh engine, or the atts is messed up. All I see on my block is H22A4, i dont know how else to verify if it is the original sh or a swapped non sh.

we need pictures of where the tranny bolts to the motor to further help you bro.
T.E.L is our resident SH guru/ pimp, if you give him enough info, he'll get it sorted.

Re: Prelude noob (SH engine power cuts out on turns)

If im correct, after doing some research on the block serial number, the previous owner swapped out the SH engine for a 98 H22A4 Base engine.
