Hey all. I just traded my 96 eclipse for a 93 prelude with a h22a1 crate motor in it. When I met up with the guy, the car started and ran great. I test drove it, and everything felt awesome. Great response, no sputtering, didnt seem like anything was wrong with it. I got up this morning though and went to go start the car, and it didnt hardly want to start. It would crank and crank and finally start, but it would idle rough and die. I would start it again, and it started quicker, but it died when I hit the gas. It did this 4 or 5 times and I figured out if I feathered the gas pedal I could get it to climb rpms. After holding it at about 2000-2500 rpms for 15-30 seconds, it would respond better and start up and idle fine. When it was completely warm, it seemed like nothing was wrong. I did some running around during the day, and when I got home I tried starting it again, and it did the same thing. It only doesnt want to start when its cold, and when I hit the gas when I first start it, it just dies. The warmer it gets, the better it responds and doesnt die, and at full temp, nothing is wrong. I talked to my father in law who is a mechanic, and he said it seems like a temp sensor isnt working and its telling the ecu that its alot warmer than it actually is when its cold and not giving it enough gas. I found out that the check engine bulb is un-plugged too. This jack knob took out the bulb so I couldnt see that something was wrong with the car. Can you guys give me some other input so I can try to get this worked out. Since tomorrow is x-mas, I cant take it to schmucks to see if/what code(s) its throwing since they are closed, but ill let you know what I find out when I can get it read. What do you guys think? Sounds like a temp sensor? Would the tps or o2 sensor cause this? I need help!
