SOURCE: Turns over fine, I replace spark plugs, wire rotor and cap but...

it sounds like your crank positions sensor is going bad, take it out and clean it up and then see if it works, you might have to replace it but try to clean it first.

Check your firing order, could be a map sensor but first get it diagnosed, then start your repairs accordingly

Engine died while driving, no spark, replaced coil, now starts, idles, runs well at low rpm, but misfires when accelerating. No check engine costs thrown. What should I check next.

Change your ignition module. The distributor is a weak point of the Honda, I will always change out the whole thing than just try the coil.

I have a 1990 dodge d150 it skips while running and in driving range it had started and just got worse what could the problem be?

Spark plugs could be burnt and misfiring. Spark plug wire could be arching. Check the distributor cap and rotor for excessive wear.

Ihave a 1987 nissan pickup Ihave spark from the coil but not to the plug why

If you have spark on the high tension lead from the coil tower, then there must be a problem with the distributor cap or rotor. The cap may be cracked. Look for black fine lines on the cap. The rotor button may be worn, and not making contact, or the rotor arm may be worn. New cap and rotor!
Your spark plug wires, are they still good? Still supple (not brittle or cracked)? You can check them with an ohmmeter to see if the resistance is still within acceptable range.
Good luck.

1987 nissan 4x4 pickup with 3.0L V6. just replaced the ignition coil and rotor. Distributor cap looked ok. started ok, but after warm and driving for 2 minutes it stalled and wouldn't...

Sounds like you changed the part that failed but did'nt change the part the caused the part to fail. the spark plgs wear out and need more power to fire as they wear out as do the old plug wires 87 is a long time ago and some are still running with the orginal parts (their that good) change all the parts at once ( plugs , wires , cap and rotor aand now again another coil) and you'll be back to going. remanber that low voltage will kill everythig and some starters will crank when the voltage is too low for anything else. fuel pump and the spark need good voltage to run and the starter may still turn the motor at very low voltages. check the battery and the charging system. You may try to just jumper to another car ( so the voltage is known good) and if it runs OK you are finding and testing battery and charging system parts.

My 1990 Stanza Is Running On 3 Cyl. I Got New Plugs Distrb Cap Rotor It Just Didn't Solve The Problem Runnig Ruff. I Know Its Getting Gas Because The Plug Is Wet I Did The Plug And Wire Test And I Am...

start the car. let it idle. get under hood. you should have your four spark plugs starting from left to right in front of you. starting on the left is cylinder #1 and #2, next to that one, and so on....

while car is running, carefully pull the spark plug wire off the SPARKPLUG. hold the spark plug wire up to the plug and see if you can see sparks. do that procedure on all plugs. do one at a time.

which ever one seems not to be sparking right, it's probably the fuel injector on that cylinder.
hope this helps.

I would check the timing chain/belt. chances are it could be either broken or jumped a tooth.
