Some preludes have a torque controll madulator. You cant turbochage those. If you care. If its a manual check the firmness of the clutch ( it should have some resistance). Listen for grinds and slips. Open the engine and listen for piston slaps, knock, and look if the engine looks like its been burning oil. Best thing to do, start it cold, and check the exhust, if its fogy and smog, then there may be problems internally, or be running lean((running lean is bad, it coats the cylinder walls, and makes them brittle). Also try to bring a machanic, and a code reader(50$ for the reader)

third gen preludes are notorious for rust, a leaking sunroof, the temperature adjusters get stuck and the emergency flashers get stuck on whe you use them (the button won't pop out), but they're still great little cars, also the back seats are extremely tiny.
