Question about Honda Civic Coupe
Can i ask you how you tested the spark plug to know if it was sparking or not?if done correctly then you should try new spark plugs.
be very careful with the distributor cap as i got a shock from it one day and think it carrys a 1000 volts seems very untrue as it runs of a 12v battery and im writing this but a mechanical teacher told me it was that or even higher.i can tell you i felt it like no other shock and i have had a good few of them so just mind that.some of your spark plug leads might be broken or damaged which would cause loss of spark to plugs.im not a mechanic and thats all i can tell you about it.obviously it wont start if it has no sparks to ignite the petrol so id follow the whole sparkplug system from the plugs back to where the wires going to them start till you find problem.i think there is an ignition igniter which could have something got to do with the actual spark being sent to the plugs.it is wired to the ignition so as when you turn the key it should send a spark to your distributor cap and then onto plugs.
on my starlet the ignition igniter was a small steel box the size of a matchbox and it was fitted on the frame of the car under the hood right behind the engine on the passenger side from what i can remember it had wires goin to it and maybe a small bracket for it.if your car is turning over and over strong then there should be enough power in battery to send a spark.let me know if that does anythin for ya

Replace the complete distributor. They are available on Ebay, brand new for a bout $100. or at any auto parts store for a little more. It sounds like the module inside the distributor popped but it could be one of the pick-ups, or maybe the coil as well. Rather than wasting a lot of time and money trying to figure out which one, just get a complete new distributor. It comes complete with a new cap, rotor, module, coil, pick-ups.
These are a very, very common problem.

whaddya mean seems like no spark. There's no such thing as "seems like no spark. There either is or isn't and it's easy to tell. remove spark plug lay against good ground and crank. you'll see it for crissse sake.
Not getting gas is a fuel delivery problem, fuse, pump, or relay.
On sunday pray for it. all the other days cuss it out.

When you turn your key to the ON position the check engine light should come on briefly, then go off. At the same time you should hear a very quiet *click* coming from the main relay that sits under the glovebox. If you dont hear this and see this, then your main relay is out. If you do hear it, then I would double check the timing on the timing belt. Was this work done at a reputable shop? Are all your grounds fine as well?? I had an issue with a car not starting because one ground wire wasnt bolted up.
