  1. 1989 Honda Prelude starting problems

    Hi.. I have Prelude gen 3.. same problem... it happened today in 30c... stopped car for 5 mins and wouldn't go. mechanic says it's ignition igniter, when car cools (after about 10 mins) it goes... cost about $300... not worth getting 2nd hand... hardly any labour cost. But stick with it great cars. Hammo I'll check! Appreciate any suggestions Geoff

    Hi Thanks for suggestion - I'll check it out Geoff
  3. Almost at the end of my tether with this one! Next step might be a 5 litre jerry can! Bought the car about 4 years ago and for three years have had a persistent problem with re-starting the vehicle after taking it out for a spin. It is certainly to do with the warming up and cooling down process but nobody seems able to fix it. Typically, it won't always restart after a trip downtown and then must be left to cool down (hopefully 10 mins or so - sometimes up to 45 mins) before it'll splutter back to life. I've so far replaced the coil, distributor and ignition module but to no avail. A lot of people seem to be aware of this particular problem with this vehicle but no one has a solution! HELP!! Cheers Geoff
