Having problems with your 1988 Honda Prelude ?
Engine will not turn over.
\015 My '88 Prelude has been sitting for three or more years. I have recharged the battery, but the car will not even turn over...just a lot of clicking and the check engine light goes on.\015
Check if you can turn motor over by hand if you cant motor has seized (rust in cylinder bores) can try removing spark plugs and put a few squirts of oil in cylinder let it soak for a day or two then try to turn over by hand with plugs out still if it frees up put plugs in and try and start be warned it may get a little smokey till oil burns off.
