1998 Prelude compression test results.

I just did a hot compression test on my 98 base model prelude. These are the numbers I got. Cylinder 1: 210 PSI, Cylinder 2: 175 PSI, Cylinder 3: 150 PSI, Cylinder 4: 210 PSI. Im just wondering what this means. My car is burning alot of oil could this be the reason or could it also have to do with the valve seals? Help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 1998 Prelude compression test results.

I just ordered an oem rebuild kit so its getting new pistons, rings, crank bearings, head gasket, timing belt, water pump, valve seals, valve guides. How do I adjust the valves? Ive never done it on a honda before.

^^^ive only done them on a bike that had dohc's but it required a shim kit so i imagine its the same process. Measure the clearence between valve cap and cam when the cams are each at certain positions... on the bike it was a bitch!!! i can only imagine a car being horrible

Re: 1998 Prelude compression test results.

there was a thread made a few days ago about a clicking noise when the gas pedal was pressed. some said he needed to adjust his valves and brought up this link.
here you go!
