Check if its getting spark if it is i would check the main relay very common problem .if no spark then i would check the ignition ignitor located in the distributor one last thing to check would be the ignition switch

    when you replaced the distributor cap did you notice a spring for the coil sometimes it falls out and goes un noticed .also when the distributor was swapped out did you use the same internal parts or did the new distributor already have the internals specifically the part thats called the ignitor its usually made by oki or hitachi thoes go bad causing no spark.and check if you left any ground wires disconnected this can cause all kinds of weired ****

    under the dist cap there should be a spring for the coil it gets lost cause allot of people dont know about it and most of the time it falls out when the cap is removed

Same problem! Put in a new ignition switch (husband did of course!) and it worked! Very cheap, under $80.

1998 accord wont start after turning it off and starting it almost immediately

yes, and did you tune it up and do all 60 and 100k service points.
spark parts, and filters ? all ?
then its losing spark, check spark quality time number of cylinders.
the PCM will cut fuel if it (thinks?) that spark is bad, this feature (safety) is a spark read back path that tells the ECM/PCM that
spark is good.
so once spark is good, all 4 cylinder. (max) simple tests, (ask)
then its bad fueling, (more simple tests)

do you want us to guess, or explain the simple tests.
some like guessing.
top good guesses are:
1: bad fuel.
2: bad spark (never ever tuned up, this decade)
3: fuel filter packed, fuel pressure very low. or nil. or marginal.
4: wrong gas cap? causes low fuel pressure?

i check spark, then fuel.
to check fuel i fist check pressure, every time.
the squirt test only proves the pump has electr. power, nothing else. I use a real guage to do that., do you have tools and gauges and a volt meter? if not, its all just guessing.

How to put back spark plug wires to a 92 honda accord

the easiest way is to do one at a time when working with plugs or wires.but if you don`t then cylinder 1 is on the end of the motor were the pulleys are then 2,3,4.this i think is a distributer system so the cap is usually marked were cylinder 1`s wire is installed.then you have to see which way the distributer rotates.then the next wire to #1 in the direction the distributer rotates will be the next wire in the firing order.the firing order is 1342.

My 92 honda civic is hard to start but once you get it running starts just fine runs good.... the battery is brand new and cranks just fine.

It could be as simple as a tune-up. Check the spark plugs, distributor cap, wires, throttle body and filters for age, wear, dirt build up or arcing.
