Question about 1992 Honda Accord
Car has power but wont turn over
If you suspect the coil than the car is turning over and not starting. Your description implies that the starter is not cranking the engine over which would not be a coil issue. I know it's petty but if you had you car towed into a shop and a diagnosis preformed based on your description there would be a substantial difference in the diagnostic charge. The ignition coil is located in the distributor behind the distributor cab. There should be power to the coil on both wires with the key on. You can check this with a test light. One of the wires should make the test light flash when you crank the enigine over. If there is no flash it is not the coil. Also make sure the rotor is turning when you crank the engine over. If it is not turning check the timing belt. If there is no power to the coil let me know and I'll get you some more info. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.
