Question about 1991 Honda Accord
I have a 1992 Honda Accord LX that was running fine and then died abruptly.
I have tested the fuel pressure (40 psi constant and holds for quite some time).
I pulled the coil wire from the distributor cap and found that it had no spark (when holding next to metal) when the vehicle was trying to turn over. I replaced the spark plugs (there was some oil in two of the plug wells that concerned me), wires, cap, rotor and coil. I also replaced the valve cover gasket that was leaking the oil into the plug well.
Alas, it still will not run (it just turns over). I followed the instructions found at AutoZone.com and tested the pick up coil (located in the distributor) and found that it is ok (power where there should be power and resistance tests ok in accordance with their specs).
I would remove the distributor cap and crank the engine over . If the rotor does not turn , then you need to replace the timing belt. The timing belt needs to be replaced every 60 K. If the rotor turns then make sure you have spark to a spark plug. Run a compression test on each cylinder. The basics to run are compression, spark, fuel and timing.

You have to replace the main relay located inside the car, its located underneath the cruise control module, on the drivers side

Just a question, the check engine light, should it stay on or does it go off before the engine is turn over.
