Question about 1990 Honda Accord
How did you check the plugs? Did you remove one and lay it on the inside of the fender and with the wire attached, turn the car over - look to see a strong blue spark - be careful - it will shock you good - and keep it away from anything flammable and the battery as well - - These cars are interference motors, if the t-belt lets loose it'll ruin the motor - but, the car will turn over, but sound like there's no compression - thus instead of da-duh-da-duh; when you turn it over it'll just go dahhhhhh or duhhhhhh - but no compressive "bump" -Yo can tell that it just doesn't sound right and no amount of starting fluid will help. A compression tester would be rewuired to check further... Now these cars are also notorious for igniter problems (distributor), but if you have spark, then it's OK. If there's no compression (When starting) then it's either a t-belt let loose, or a blown head gasket - has the car overheated? or what else can you tell me? There are several other things to look at, but I need to know a little more, or how you want to handle it....
