Hello,

I just bought a 5 spd Prelude. My friend told me to warm it up in the morning your should put the car in first gear and just let go of the clutch really fast without pushing the gas. There is a violent shaking when I do that and then the car just shuts off. After a week of doing this, I can't even put the car in any gear. My friend said that I may be out of clutch fluid but the fluid is fine. Can anyone help?

Thank you!

wtf!!! :wow ur friend is a dumbass, i think he was fucking around, and why did u listen..to warm a car, any car just start the damn thing and let it sit....
yeah in the winter the car should only sit for like 30 seconds just to get the coolant and oil flowing. After that just drive it like a normal 5 speed.

My headlight fluid is low and Honda wants almost $150 to drain, flush the system and fill it back up :mad
Man... you're lucky! My blinker fluid ran out and fried the pump... Now I need a new blinker fluid pump! $760 from Honda installed!

Pump should be OK, from what I've heard, Honda makes the best blinker pumps. KaleCo sells Blinker Fluid for $5.50 a bottle, better than the other top brands. Due to their higher viscosity, it will rejuvenate the flash synchros and give you more blinks for your buck!

:eek come on dude!!! are you serious... kill that fucking, brilliant friend you have. :kick
:hehe

there's no point to warm the car up in gear...it's just a great way to kill ur car...eventually, u did kill ur car...usually people just let the car sit idly to warm up to the operational temperature...

30 secs seems too soon. For 5sp, i usually let it sit till it's ready and when it's ready the rev will drop to idle position...usually 1-2min depending on how cold the engine is.

^^^ No kidding.
I bought some OE Blinker Fluid a while back from Honda, $10.99 a bottle. That stuff didn't last long. Then I tried some STP, a little better, but my blinks were not up to my likings. Then I found the KaleCo blinker fluid, and wow! Cheapest price and best quality product :tu And it lasts a long time.

OMG! I pay $15.99 a bottle at our local Honda Dealership! What a rip off...

My blinkers are starting to slow down... I better check the resevoir again to make sure I don't burn up my pump like I did before. Maybe I'm burning blinker fluid... Possible?
