    Ok i have a 92 prelude i am working on. I can get it to start if i barely push in on the gas. But it only starts for a sec. Then dies. Will not idle. Sounds like air coming out of the throttle body? Have not done a comp. Check yet. I wonder if its the head or what? Thanks in advance.

    do you have a CAI on your 'lude? With the weather we've been having (arlington was hit the worst by it) you might have sucked water.

    I doubt the main relay would be acting up on you since its been 70 degrees all week, but when my H22 lude was doing that i replaced the main relay and the fuel pump and all was groovy.

    check your timing. check all of your grounds. check your fuel pressure.

    i just drop in a replacement h23 for a friend and was having the same problem, checked valve lash and readjusted and it ran fine, we have no idea how they got out of wack since it came out of a running rig but i guess it did.
