My 2000 honda civic wont turn over and has no spark but the ignition coil and modual are both fine


Won't turn over? Do you mean the starter won't crank the engine over?

Or the engine cranks over and won't start, and you have tested for spark when cranking and have no spark? And then you have tested the coil and ignition module, and they tested out good? Am I on the right page here? If so, maybe the next thing to check would be the crank position sensor. The ecu (computer) signals the ignitor (ignition module) when to initiate spark after it digests the signals from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

I replaced cap rotar and dist. now it cranks over but will not fire and is back firing


the timing is off a bit! heres how I do it. remove the number 1 plug, stick a straw or similar in plug hole. turn engine over by the crank shaft with a wrench. when piston gets to very top of bore, just before it goes down. this is tdc. remove distributor cap and remove distributor reposition the distributor rotor button facing number 1 plug wire inside cap. replace cap and try it! please let me know if this works for you. good-day ! if you can not get to number 1 plug. just turn the crank to tdc marks are on damper pully or crank. is this a 5.7,

I have a Honda civic 1.5 vtec 1995. Car cranks but won't fire, then after 3 tries at starting stops cranking. A jump start usually starts the car again and then ok for a couple of months. This is...


sounds like the distributor. over time the distributor could get debris and condensation inside it and cause it to act up here and there.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

Onece in a while turn over wont fire. runs great other wise


your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

Car wont start


Basic things,

Is the cranking speed good? Slow?

Is the fuel pump working? If yes..
Is the fuel filter clogged?

Are the drive teeth on the starter itself ok?

Do you have good compression in all cylinders (if it is low then assume a slipped timing belt.)

95 civic no spark


Does it sound different when you crank it over? if so remove the oil filler cap and look inside while someone turns it over, if NOTHING MOVES, it has a broken timing belt, therefore no spark.
