check the spark plug wire for any nicks or burns and sometimes the spark plug could be broken and you just cant see it so if you left it somewhere where something could happen to it i would check that out. i dont see your timing jumping unless the tension was loose. also i know how much an engine viberates when you are missing a plug so check for any loose wires. good luck
CHANGE SPARK PLUGS.YOU NEED SPARK PLUG 3/8 SOCKET.YOU NEED SHORT AND LONG 3/8 EXTENSIONS.YOU NEED SPARK PLUG BOOT PULLER AND A SPARK PLUG GAUGE SET THE SPARK PLUG GAP.NOW CHANGE 1 SPARK PLUG AT A TIME SO YOU MIX THEM UP GET FIRING ORDER MIX UP CAR BACK FIRE WONT CRANK.ALSO CHANGE PLUG WIRES ALSO.
Cylinder #1 will be the one closes to the fan belts and so on 1-2-3-4, on the distributor cap there should be a # 1 stamped on it, put cylinder # 1 spark plug wire on that one, install spark plug wire in firing order clockwise on the cap, the cap some time's might even have the firing order on it.
I need more info the engine light will come on when you turn the key on it is natural it dosent go off until the car starts. but on that car you need three basic elements and it will start gas, air, and spark. the car turns over? if it does pull one of the spark plugs out plug it back into the wire lay it on top of the valve cover and have one of your buddies crank the car you shold see a spark. No spark check the fuses first then see if the distributor has power. if so you might need a distributor cap, rotor, spark plug wires. how long has it been since you had a tune up? that pretty much tells if you have spark. Next gas pull the air cleaner off look down the throat of the carburetor then hit the gas you should see it spray gas if not you could have a carburetor problem or a fuel pump problem check the fuel pressure should be between 4-6 Lbs of pressure.
then air cant mess that up unless the air filter is really dirty.
DID YOU HAVE SPARK IN THE SPARK PLUG WIRES WHAT YOU CAN DO IS TAKE OFF ONE OF THE WIRES FROM THE SPARK PLUG AND PUT A FLAT SCREW DRIVER INSIDE THE WIRE AND PUT IT CLOSE TO THE METAL SO THE WIRE GETS GROUND AND HAVE SOME ONE TO CRANK THE ENGINE AND YOU GOING TO SEE THE SPARK IF YOU DONT SEE SPARK SO THAT IS YOU POBLEM
Try a honda civic forum online or maybe autozones free auto repair information site online. Check your fuel pressure, spark, timing and air flow meter. When was the last time the car was tuned up? Check air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap+rotor and the ignition timing. Check for loose or corrosion around and or on contact points of wiring ( power, ground, and your spark plug wires if theres any sign of wear or corrosion.) Make sure fuel is fresh and not stale from aging over time.
