check engine light, NINE codes. Need help pls!

Hey everyone.
I have a 92 prelude that has 9 codes in it. I think they are from 3 separate problems, but I wanted to see if anyone had any of the same problems.

First one is a P0420, check engine light, this one is not the one I'm worried about.

next, P0780 - Transmission. This was there before the car started misfiring, and I don't think it's related. I know those honda/acura 5 speed transmissions for the 00-03 v6's are garbage, so I'm sure it's just that. Apparently it shifts and clunks hard into gear, so I'm sure the trans is on it's way out. The guy that drives the car is used to that and has "learned to drive with it".

P1399 - ? Something related to the misfiring, not sure what exactly the code is.
p0300 - Random Misfire
p0302 - misfire cylinder 2
p0303 - misfire cylinder 3
p0304 - misfire cylinder 4
p0305 - misfire cylinder 5
p0306 - misfire cylinder 6

I'm not really sure what all the misfiring could be from. It's not like it has a cap/rotor set up, so I can't do the traditional tune up. It's missing in all of the cylinders and it started all at once, so I don't think the coil packs or the plugs are bad.

Any ideas on what I should check to troubleshoot the engine misfire?

Thank you

uhhhh....... unless the previous owner converted to a coil on spark plug conversion, VERYYYY expensive, it DOES have a traditional dizzy cap and rotor. Left side of the motor, it has all 4 spark plug wires connected to it.

I think he's talking about a CL or TL w/ 5 speed automatic & not a prelude. . .

You own a 4th gen.




Welcome to the 5th gen section.



So you have an Accord V6 in your 4th gen Prelude?

The '03 accords were the first hondas to get a 5 speed auto.

The 02's still had 4 speed autos.

Both were just as unreliable though, lol.




But which car is throwing the codes, 92 prelude (4th gen btw) or the accord?? Or are they throwing seperate codes, which together add up to 9?
