91 Honda Accord No spark

I have a 91 Honda Accord . I decided to change the spark plugs and do a compression test on it . All was running good then when I put it back together it wont start . I have checked for spark and I have none . I put a new rotor on it had the coil checked at AutoZone . Put a new ignitoin moduel on it checked the fuses . I know I have power to the coil when the key is on . Totally stumped any ideas ?

    I just purchased a new distributor for my car it cost 200 dollars i cant return it after i install it i just read that someone had no spark an replaced most of the parts in the distributor then it said for the solution that the timing chain could b broke or damaged an the way to tell would be that the car would sound different when turned over than it did before should i try to install my new distributor?

If the timing belt is damaged(broken or missing teeth) you will get no spark. One easy way to tell is that many times the engine will sound different as it turns over, than it used to.

    I would check the timing belt before you install anything. Why spend the money if you may not need it?

Cranks won't start


First you must check to see if engine is mechanical sound by performing a compression test. remove the spark plugs install a compression gauge in the spark plug hole and crank engine about 4 cycles compare readings to all cylinders reading should be around 125-150 psi readings in the 50 psi range possible jumped or broken timing belt. If engine is mechanically sound test for spark at the spark plugs use a spark plug laid against valve cover and have some one crank it over look for the spark to jump the gap. A no spark problem is internal in the distributor.

91 accord will crank but STILL not start


cars wont start without fuel so it could always be A) fuel pump B) fuel filter C) fuel injecters dirty. any one of these will cause fuel not to reach your spark plugs and cause then eng not to start

My 91 honda accord is running on 3 cylinders. should I just replace the motor?


If it's running on 3 cylinder's due to bad compression on the 4th cylinder yes, if not repair.Could be just as easy as a spark plug wire.

Honda Accord one cylinder not firing


The cylinder is not getting fuel, spark or compression. You have already checked for spark on that cable and it appears to be good. Pull the spark plug and see if it is damaged. You can also switch spark plug and cable to another cylinder and see if the miss travels with the plug and or cable. If so, you'll know its the spark plug/cable that is bad.

You can check for fuel by listening to the fuel injector to see if it clicks. Use an automotive stethoscope or a long screwdriver--put the metal end of the screwdriver on the injector and the other end against your ear and listen to the injector while the engine is cranking or running. You should hear it click for each time it pulses fuel.

If both fuel and spark are good, then you are probably missing compression in that cylinder. You (or a mechanic) will need to pull all the spark plugs and do a engine compression test with a compression test/gage set. Lots of things can lead to poor or zero compression including: broken piston rings, burned/stuck/broken valves, cracked cylinder head or engine block, cracked pistons,etc.

Because one cylinder is "dead", the engine has to work extra hard to start and run against a cylinder that is dragging it down. If you find low/no compression in that cylinder, you will probably have to remove the cylinder head to correct it. A big expensive job. It may be cost effective to replace the whole engine with a rebuilt one.

Lots of engine oil in air filter


Do you have good vacuum at the PCV valve? Remove your spark plugs and run a compression test. Sounds like you have a lot of blow by. Combustion gases blowing by the piston rings.
