SOURCE: 1991 Honda Civic STILL won't start

if your not getting spark then your coil is the mostlikely cause it's obviously not a timing issue since you stated that the rotor is spinning. if the spark plugs are bad then replace them too . to be sure that your getting spark to all cylinders test each of the spark plugs after replacing the coil. just to besure it's not starving for fuel as well spray a little ether in the breather if it fires off right away that means the even though your fuel pump works it may not have a high enough pressure. let me know the results

SOURCE: 1997 honda accord no spark, motor turns over

Could be the ignition coil or ignition module. Also check the ignition fuse.

SOURCE: car won't start when it's hot outside

My daughter's 1991 Honda Accord did the same thing. I discovered that the main relay had to be replaced. Apparently the solder used in the original main relay was poor and would actually "soften" in the heat and cause a disconnection. When the cabin temperature dropped, the solder would cool and reconnect. Anyway, replacing the main relay worked. My daughter's car has not had this problem since.

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

You need to replace your Main Realy, it is under the right side of your dash.

Car was runing fine then massive loss of power after comming to complete stop and tryin to accelerate as if was not running on all cylindars or out of gas it bogs but r.p.m.s rev high


You are going to have to inspect for a timing belt, the 1.6, 1.8 has a hydraulic tensioner if it looses its tension you wont run on all cylinder and you will bog down and yet be able to rev high. you will need to change t-belt and the t belt tensioner
