    yo i have a 93 prelude h22a1, its running like straight shit. i have no power when i step on the gas for like 5-10 seconds then itll go, but still with a hell of alot of hesitation. and all u smell is raw fuel, i went about 40 miles and used a half a tank. its throwing a code put i dont kno how to check the codes. i dont know where the plug is that i have to jump. but i already changed the fuel pressure regulator, the air boost valve, but the check engine light is still on. before i changed those 2 things the car wouldnt even stay running. as soon as i tapped the gas it would die right out. can someone please help. i thought it might be the O2 sensor for the raw fuel, and a clogged cat for the hesitation and loss of power. but i dont wanna go spend nemore money if i dont have to. so please help me.:(:(

    it may be a map sensor but you need to check the codes there is a wire with i think i blue plug with two wires on the passenger side jump a wire in between the wires and count the check engine light long light is 10s and fast lights are 1s

    Just a suggestion. I am not sure how old you are or where you are located but I would call up any of the local high schools with and auto shop and see if they have a diagnostics tool. I know that the shop at the school I teach at has three of them, i actually used it last night. It might save you some headache. Just my .02 and I bet they would love the learning experience.
