Is youre Prelude an SH? If it's an SH then the oil filter can only be accessed from the top. Pop your hood and look down the driver side firewall pass the fuel filter. If it's a base model then jack the car up and you should see the filter from underneath on the back of the block. Hope that helps.

Ill just add this, because I'm a little worried for anyone that cant find the oil filter on a motor.

If you are going to jack up your car, please be safe. Use jackstands and wheel blocks before you crawl under there. Do Not trust a jack alone.

Also make sure you use the jack on the correct lift points.
