Broken is a good nic?


Have you pulled the CEL codes?

You have not provided NEAR ENOUGH information for our resident gear heads to really help you. From what you typed, to me, the Non-gear head, it sounds like you blew an engine... but then again, I am not mechanically inclined nor can we assume such a thing with the limited information you have provided.

Re: need help with 1992 prelude

Re: need help with 1992 prelude

take off the timing cover and use a long screw driver to determine where the noise is coming from.
