    pull the CEL dude...

    there's prob a good chance that will lead you to the problem...

    you didn;t give any info worth a damn...
    my car idles low and will stall if you push the clutch in???
    wtf is that

    do you know how to access the CEL?
    if not you need to do your research...
    look in the refrence section here for ecu error codes and CEL codes...

    how come your thread says jackson, but your sig says comptech?

    do you even know what you have?

    becuz the comptech is on the S2K if you even bothered to look instead of making rude comments. The jackson is on the prelude which i just purchased, it isnt on my profile yet.

    whoa, slow your roll...
    i don;t think you realize who you're talking to like that...

    and maybe if you didn;t have a typo in your sig then people would know its an S2K, instead of S200, which is a hondata system...

    did you ever try to bite your ear??
    its really cool...

    so captain cranky pants, did you try and pull the CEL code? or you just came to bitch cause people were being rude and not understanding your hacked sig?

    make sure you a getting proper fuel supply and check your spark - some little steps you can check in a madder of minuetes - just trying to help- also make sure all sensors are plugged in on the supercharger, and the main supercharger pulley has enough tension on it

    Check the PGM relay under the driver's footwell. That is a common fail spot for Preludes that do anything to change fuel consumption (forced induction, performance swaps, even high-flow fuel pumps). If the relay is failing, you run a high risk of destroying your ignition coil. If you have cold-start issues, I can almost 100% assure you it is the PGM relay. You can nab the relay for about $60 online.

    he said he had an '01 prelude, but the code trick says it only works to '98. maybe that's why he hasn't tried it. just a thought.
