Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Stock from Honda is your best bet.

Now, had you stated your suspension is used up, this conversation woulda went in a different direction.

99 times out of 100 new folks ask what you asked because they think it's a required thing to do in order get the most 'cool' out of their car.
So I was wrong for presuming you were the 99 and not the 1 exception. My bad.

Figure on removing your calipers asap to do maintenance on the the moving parts. And bleed your fluid out to ensure there is no garbage in the ends, which can also cause them to stick open or closed.


Now to the important stuff...

Pix!! Where pix?

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Thank you sir.
It is my bad that I did not clarify my situation.
I will try to upload more pictures. Pictures will be same quality as previous. (pictures taken by phone) ain't nobody got money for new phone or camera when you got a car like this to spend on (at least I don't)

I did take a look at Honda Struts option (Are they brand spanking new from honda, if I order from honda parts?), and I prefer to get a pre-built assembly that I can just install. That is why i was wondering about coilovers. That way I can just install them, adjust them, and be done with it. But as you all know Prelude Base suspension is not usually compatible with Type-SH.

I wasn't too sure about strut and spring combination. I would like to go with coilovers. But if struts and springs work and are compatible, I will go that route.

For suspension, I would like to keep the cost under $1000, (I am paying for this car all on my own, so I don't want to burn a hole in my pocket).

Thank you for your time and wisdom.

These here are kinda expensive, maybe I will upgrade later down the road if current brake lines are ok.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

These are the coilovers that I am considering:

They are $900 for the 2001 Honda Preludes and it says for all models.

But I think they are mostly for track use.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Yes they are new. See the honda dealers across America get their replacement parts from giant Honda warehouses across the country.
Places like majestic honda.com, us honda parts.com and hondaparts cheap.com use those same warehouses to draw parts from as they are authorized to do so by honda. But they charge 30% less than a dealer.
Honda parts now is located at their main warehouse. I use them because of their stellar search feature and in many cases they don't have to draw from those other warehouses for parts for my 97

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Thank you so much. This is exactly what I was looking for.
This weekend I am going to clean this baby up.

Just wondering, how long did it take you to learn how to drive a manual transmission?

I have had 30 minutes practice so far and I am able to get off first and shift gears, but I need more practice to get more smoother.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Lol..I'm still learning to drive stick shift.

Nah, seriously I cut my teeth driving manual dump trucks...on hills..at red lights. Ya get it going or back over the little old lady behind you.

One day I could not get the truck to go...red light on a hill turned green, and as usual the little old lady behind me had gotten up close. After 5 or six tries, she went around me. Well as it turns out the truck was in 3rd gear. Doh!

I taught my son to drive a clutch, begining in a parking lot as a 'take off' lesson. Then after oh, maybe an hour of getting that wired, he drove around the subdivision, using take off, and first to second. Did that several times.
If memory serves I sent him to the store or something for his maiden voyage figuring he'd be a helluva lot let nervous without dad yelling 'push the clutch pedal, hit the brakes, watch that squirrel' and all that jazz.

Eh, don't sweat it. You'll get it.

Now one thing many folks get wrong, but it takes practice...lots of it. Most let the clutch out using leg power. Once you get a feel for where the clutch begins to engage, you plant your heel in the carpet there, and use your ankle to let the pedal slide up your shoe....

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

My dad and I talked about planting the heel today. My dad could do it but I had trouble. My shoe would grip on to the clutch pedal when I press and depress the clutch. But my dad could do it without any problem.

I found another problem, sunroof opening issues. its not that important but it needs to be addressed. This weekend is simple car wash and simple vacuuming.

Next pic posting is going to be this weekend. Hopefully.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Each clutch pedal system if different. Now many are set similar from the factory. That means they engage at around the same height off the floor, and force needed to push in or let out is similar.

But each has it's own subtle, unique 'feel' to it. So each time you drive a stick shift vehicle that's different, you'll be getting to know that particular clutch.

Ok I said all that to point out that if you don't immediately drive smooth, you're not alone. And that your dad probably knows how to get used to a clutch real quick like through years of practice.
And he probably puts the seat in a position that gives him the best leverage for his preffered clutch pedal press action.

When you aint busy, slide into the car. Since you won't be driving it at this point don't buckle up. Pull the seat forward as far as you can. Work the clutch pedal. Move seat back one notch. Work clutch pedal. Keep doing that until you feel like your seat is too far back to work the clutch pedal. Then move forward until you've found your sweet spot.
Now, work the pedal. Eh a couple dozen times, getting used to how YOU feel comfortable with it.
Slide seat back all the way and get out of the car.
Repeat process later or the next day. By the 18th you'll have this clutch pedal thing wired.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

hahaha, there is a problem with this. What if your seat has problems adjusting, like mine. Lets just say my car has been lived in. it is not entirely "clean".

but yea i will get this thing right with practice. hopefully within about 5-7 days.

Prior to my ownership of this car, the previous owner has been putting Midgrade gas in the prelude. I would like to put premium just because its the right gas to put in this car.

Do I need to empty the tank or add in a fuel stabilizer or is it just ok to fill up with premium will little midgrade in the tank?

Thanks!

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Add good premium like Shell V-power or BP utlimate. Marine stabilizer or the blue stuff. Marine is dark (almost brown) green. They are the good stuff. The red stuff is decent. But the others are better.

If you guys are going to drive the car often, stabilizer is not necessary. Or use the red stuff. But if you go say 30 days or more between fill ups, then use the good stuff. Don't worry about over dosing.

I use marine for stuff that sits a lot. I can store lawnmower gas all winter. Re-fill the mower fuel tank (that was emptied) and it starts first pull. When I used to use red, starter fluid was required the first start.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

So when it is time for me to fill up (with some mid-grade in the tank), i can pour the whole bottle of this http://www.amazon.com/STA-BIL-22240-.../dp/B001CAW2DK, into the gas tank and then fill up with premium and drive off, correct? (I will be driving to school then work then go home) monday to friday, and then just fill up with premium from then on.

Am I correct on this?
Thanks for the help!

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Yep...

It's not an octane boost mind ya. Nor an induction system cleaner. It's a liquid ingredient to keep the ethanol...ethanol instead of returning to a sugar form, thereby keeping the octane of the combination of gasoline and ethanol at it's original amount. As the ethanol turns back into sugar the octane level of the fuel reduces accordingly.

If the fuelin the car is fresh (less than a month old) and you are going to add fuel weekly, you probably won't gain any benefit by adding stabilizer. Now it won't hurt to use it, but not necessary. Probably an ounce per gallon at fill up.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

So guys back to the suspension thing again. Honda does not sell the assembled strut. I would have to buy it and assemble it myself, however I do not have the experience, so I do not feel comfortable to self assemble the struts. I am seriously considering the form and function type 2 coilovers for my type-sh.

I do not want to take it to any mechanics because I don't have the money for it. and I do not know any reliable mechanics in my area. and plus I prefer to do work on my car on my own.

I hope you understand.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

hey man congrats on picking up your 1st car, mine was a 98 base when I was 16 learned how to drive standard in the high school parking lot that summer lol after killing the clutch..I opted for f&f type1 coilovers on my base since the original struts/spring were never replaced. Mind you my chasis has 230k mi.. imo don't wast the 900 bucks for the type twos..and with your SH I would highly recommend a strut and maybe a lower spring package. You'll be glad you did and you'll have more cash in your pocket for other "enhancements" (:

a little tip to making your sun roof open and close easier is a good wipe down of the dirt and grime and the apply silicone spray to the railing and rubber seals.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

Thanks for the tips man.
I got my lude January 4th.
I think I'm pretty good with driving stick, I'm better than my dad at driving stick now, I haven't done too much damage. Although my shifter rattle and makes a "grinding" noise when I go into 2nd(I dont think im grinding gears, but could it possibly be synchros?)
I won't be getting a new suspension for a while.
But when I do get new suspension I will be getting BC Racing BR Coilovers.

Stay luding.

Re: In the process of purchasing a 2001 Honda Prelude Type-SH

I would recommend checking the fluid level first.

Look into your owners manual to know how to properly check.

After checking level, take a look at the color.
If its black i would be very cautious to changing it depending on how many miles your engine/transmission has.
You might have no choice but to change the oil, only use Honda transmission fluid, nothing else ever if you need to add or replace.

I understand you recently picked up your Prelude, do a good search over on all fluids if you haven't yet.
Fluids are essential to a happy engine/transmission. (just common knowledge)

Also don't hard shift from first to second or to third, slamming gears is not a good idea will make matters worse if you already hear strange sounds.

If you wanna indulge yourself into your cars transmission assembly, that's a good idea. Read into it, the illustrations, identify them on your car, and check those parts for leaks/wear. look into your slave cylinder, master cylinder, shift linkage and cables. there are many moving parts.

Best of luck, hope this helps.

You might have no choice but to change the oil, only use Honda transmission fluid, nothing else ever if you need to add or replace.

I understand you recently picked up your Prelude, do a good search over on all fluids if you haven't yet.
Fluids are essential to a happy engine/transmission. (just common knowledge)

Also don't hard shift from first to second or to third, slamming gears is not a good idea will make matters worse if you already hear strange sounds.

If you wanna indulge yourself into your cars transmission assembly, that's a good idea. Read into it, the illustrations, identify them on your car, and check those parts for leaks/wear. look into your slave cylinder, master cylinder, shift linkage and cables. there are many moving parts.

Best of luck, hope this helps.
What fluid, Clutch?
