tps code p1399

does anyone know what this code indicates? my lude is misfiring like crazy at low rpm and sounds like a lawn mower when i accelerate, even after about 4000rpm it misfires faster and most of the time it cant even crossover.

If only someone would create a forum for Prelude owners where you could search their experiences for the answers to your questions. That would be a perfect place.

^ the funny thing is i have full compression in every cylinder when its running, i did the compression test at idle

here are some more details; it doesnt misfire when i drive it cold, when it warms up it starts misfiring right away on take off, when i drive it for a long time it misfires/putts at idle, it does it the worst when the car is at running temp, the misfiring occurs more the more i push the throttle while accelerating, and it does it mostly from 1st(worst) to 3rd and maybe even 4rth when im cruising in lower rpms, it does it the worst from 0-3000rpm and sometimes after 4500rpm to whenever i shift, sometimes it doesnt even crossover into vtec because its misfiring so bad

mods: CAI, 2.5" axle back, chipped ECU, breather, battery relocated to trunk.. lots more i cant think of right now

maintenance: changed spark plugs (NGK irridiums), spark plug wires(8.5mm MSD), dist cap, distributor, egr, cleaned intake filter, regular oil change...etc

about 130xxxkm

i have got an engine code about the cat getting too hot, the light stays on


i'm going to change my throttle position sensor and see if it is still misifiring, my brother just told me the exact same thing happened to his crx with the same symptoms and he replaced the tps sensor and it ran like a champ after that

i think its a faulty TPS sensor

I was aware that it wasn't mentioned in my post. My reason for posting it was for him to follow the troubleshooting steps. Also, a quick search for the code will give results.

I would look into the igniton recall man, that may be causing the miss
i erased the code twice and it still comes up after a day or two

Don't apologize. I don't have thin skin like pIERCE.

If you have the desire to call BS, do it. I make about one mistake per month. You might catch me.

i'm going to replace the TPS sensor to see if that's causing it because its not going to cost me much and if it is that then its going to save me a lot of trouble, but if it doesnt i'll surely call Honda and ask about the recall.

thanks a lot guys

ok so i took my car to the recall, they replaced ignition and everything was dandy..

car is still misfiring and i get an engine code that says the cat is getting too hot and sometimes when i rev i hear it rattling, i think it might be clogged or broken because i still have compression in all cylinders and all that jazz

can a clogged or broken cat be causing my car to misfire/choke like this?





edit: here are some more details i left out that i got asked about in other forums

it doesnt misfire when i drive it cold, when it warms up it starts misfiring right away on take off, when i drive it for a long time it misfires/putts at idle, it does it the worst when the car is at running temp, the misfiring occurs more the more i push the throttle while accelerating, and it does it mostly from 1st(worst) to 3rd and maybe even 4rth when im cruising in lower rpms, it does it the worst from 0-3000rpm and sometimes after 4500rpm to whenever i shift, sometimes it doesnt even crossover into vtec because its misfiring/choking so bad


maintenance: changed spark plugs (NGK irridiums), spark plug wires(8.5mm MSD), dist cap, distributor, egr, cleaned intake filter, regular oil change...etc

about 130xxxkm

I have a 2000 prelude, 170,XXX. Car died on the street, after towed back to house, checked spark, fuel and air. All good. Started misfiring, ran coded and got 301,302,303,304, P1399 codes. Ran compression test, cyclinders 1,2,3 all came back 180psi, but cyclinder 4 came back with 0psi? I also have an insane blowby issue, to the point that it blew the dipstick out and began spewing oil and smoke. Take oil cap off while idling and it looks like a volcano theres so much smoke. HELP PLEASE!
