I got a 1996 Honda Prelude with a v-tech engine (sweet). Anyway I'm having a problem shifting into gear. My shifter won't go in to gear unless i put it in gear while the car is off. Then when i turn it on it starts to go while i have the clutch in. Then i can go and gear up but when i try and gear down it won't go in to gear again. I have already changed the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder disengages all the way. Any ideas to help me out!!!!

ok I had the same problem with mine I have a 92 prelude. If you look at your throttle body on the under side of it there will be a smaller piece that unbolts from the throtlle body as a whole. It has something to do with your idle speed. It also has coolant running throught it. pull the hose off of it and unbolt it from the throttle body and replace it. or you could get a whole new throttle body, but that can be expensive.(Be careful though. It is a pain in the but to reach all the bolts, which actually take a philips head srew driver. And unless you have small hands it can also be hard to reach.) I replaced it and it fixed my problem completely. I've never had any trouble with it again. I hope this helps in some way.

I'm pretty new to the prelude scene. I drive a 92 si 2.3, and was wondering what BB1 or BB4 or any other BB's for that matter, mean?Which one do I have? If you know, let me in on the secret.

Replacing oil and filter might help. Maybe adding an additive??? Something like lucas might help if you can get it. Question: is lucas sold in U.K.??? Sorry, I live in the U.S.

Mine BB1, there was same symptoms. The clutch fluid hose above the gearbox was leaking little bit. And therefore was unable to maintain pressure in it.
At Honda they said that it is impossible that the hose brokes. But it brokes.
