1995 Preludes should have a bar across the front to hold the hood up. It's not a piston or spring. If the bar isn't there, it probably rotted out or just got pulled out and the owner before you never replaced it. I'm sure you could find one at any junkyard or even find a replacement online. Another way to check, just for future reference, is if you look around on the under side of the hood, a lot of times if there is an arrow pointing a certain hole then it is a rod to hold it up.
