Point you into the right direction how?

The car has a knock. It'll need a new motor. Or a rebuild. If you don't feel that you can do it yourself, or you don't wanna spend the money on it, your best bet is to wait for another prelude to pop up.

Re: 1993 prelude engine knock

if you actually know how to work on v8s then this should be a piece of cake to fix. a motor is a motor unless its diesel or rotary.

totally wrong bro.

Honda clearances are like no other.

A big v8 is WAYYY easier to work on than a honda motor.
