HELP>92 honda prelude 2.3l dohc -no spark to dist.. Started looking at the

Smaller/cheaper things first of course..after it began to "buck" wild like lol.... vaccum leaks, fuel issues, and elec. connectors all good.I was getting 5 codes from the OBD plug under the dash..I changed the fuel and air filters. no change. I replaced the oxygen sensor...ren better/cleaner but no real change. I changed the plugs and wires and still it continured to "buck". It almost seemed to loose all power then kick back on but all lights and cig. lighter...stuff like that worked fine.I blocked the Japanees annoyance valve and the lopeing seemed to stop. I changed the coil and finally the distributor and 4/5 codes were gone after changing the distr...now only a code 23 remains (crankshaft angle positioning sensor), I looked it up, couldnt find it in the book I have so I called auto store and was told that there is none on my vehicle...comes up as a camshaft syncronizer. It ran great on the test drive until suddenly it quietly lost all engine power, shut down and i was towed home, couldn't find the issue. Does anyone have an idea of what i can do now???

SOURCE: 95 GMC Jimmy 4.3l W vin rough idle

My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.

Take off the distributor cap. Check the star wheel that is splined to the distributor shaft that the pick-up coil uses. Make sure this wheel is not loose on the distributor shaft. It is right above the pick-up. If it is loose, replace the distributor. This is a common problem. If it needs one, all the part stores stock the distributor.

SOURCE: Hesitation and stumbling.

Before you do that, check which thermostat it has in it, if it has one that is letting it get too warm or not completely up to temp when the computer think it should be, it would cause this. My 2000 crown vic did the same thing and thats what it was.

SOURCE: Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

Where is the fuel pump relay on 92 Prelude S?


Up above your gas pedal. It will be a gray box or a brown box. Don't buy a new one, just pry the cover off of it and look close to find the broken solder connection. Heat the faulty pin until the solder puddles around it and your good to go. It's smaller than a human har, look close and you'll see the loose connection.

93 honda prelude dohc vtec engine will not can be push started


Sounds like you accidently pulled the thin wire from you starter motor. Look at the connections at the end of the solenoid, mounted on starter motor.The thick red wire is Battery + next to that connection is a smaller male push- on terminal, locate loose wire (thin) in the same area and reconnect to male push-on terminal on solenoid or check if earth cable between body/battery to engine wasnt removed in the process.Also some vehicles you have to engage the clutch before starting, check for a switch located on clutch pedal where master cylinder connects to clutch pedal (Is clutch switch mounted and wiring connected?)
