Question about 1998 Honda Civic
Its just after i take out the spark plug from the distibutor cap i have this problem no spark from the coil
Did you check fuses first?
there are 4 to 6 plugs all are dead?
which 98 engine option you have? name it. or cyl count and displacement.
so you checked at the coil. actual, if true, that is no spark. at all.
USA answers ONLY !
1: connnect scan tool to DLC 16pin connect, by knees.
2: i crank for 5 seconds, 1potatoe 2 potatoe . ....5
3: i release key,. not turn off.
4: the scan tools shows, DTCS for CMP or CKP bad. Yes, then BINGO.
the car the PCM makes spark fully,. the PCM has cam and crank
signals that the PCM uses to fire the IGNITOR.
this is the first check.
if no DTC errors, the Ignition or coil is bad. or just a fuse blown.
using said $9 scan tool check Pending DTC errors too.
for CMP or CKP, po340 or p0355, etc.
this will get you on the right side of the PCM every time.
the ecu/pcm first the COIL !
ask for help checking coil or ignitor.
or read the FSM , it covers that 100%

The spark plugs are numbered starting on the drivers side (1) to the passenger side (4), the distributor rotates clockwise, and the firing order is 1 - 3 - 4 - 2

well if this is the model i think it is you have pgm ignition. you have an ignition coil , ignitor unit, ground wires all(corrosion) left to check.
after these things let me know if problem persists

Remove the left front wheel....(drivers side). Remove all accessory belts. Remove the crankshaft shaft pulley.......remove the plastic lower timing belt cover.....and there it is! It is mounted with one bolt.
The wiring runs down the right side of the timing cover while looking at it from the drivers side of the car.

Testimonial: "I ended up having my mechanic do the work. He did say he had to move all those parts to get to the sensor. "
