Honda Accord- no fire

1990 - About a month ago, had no fire so replaced the plugs, wires, rotor button, coil & distributor cap. I have had no problems until today. Suddenly no fire again. All electrical components are working just no fire. Any suggestions?

    car died a couple of days ago. replaced coil and got it home at least but it died on the way home twice and didnt wanna start. but luckily...ITS HOME. so i replaced the ignition module (ignitor) and still nothing. my valve cover was leaking oil onto the plug wires so i cleaned them off with a degreaser, fixed the oil leak, and it started. very roughly though. i have to let it sit for 10 to 15 min or so and itll start again. when its sitting in the driveway, i can tromp on the gas pedal and its fine but if its in gear and the rpm's are below.. say.. 2000, it spits and putters liike it missing on 1 or 2 cylinders. it only does this at a low rpm. what the hell? yes its getting gas. it hasnt jumped time. its something to do with the ignition timing advance when its under a load. but i dont kow what sensor or part could cause all this. im gonna try to get new plugs and wires. hopefully that fixes it. but any suggestions would be appreciated greatly.

1996 accord will not start has no fire to plugs


start with a new distributor cap and rotor button. Should probably replace the plug wires too. If still nothing, look to see that you're getting spark from the coil to the distributor.

1991 honda accord did a tune up 5 months ago when would not start engine turned over but no fire replaced rotor and cap, car acted the same way today replaced cap and rotor again and now starts. Any...


You likely have a 3 way power relay issue or a defective pickup or igniter in the distributor. When these parts are defective the no starts come and go just like you have already experienced. If the car is over 100,000 miles all these problems are extremely likely. I doubt the distrutor cap and rotor were the cause.

It will crank, but wont start. spark plugs are not firing


Most of the time,on that model,it is the distributor,if the timing belt has not broken,pull the distributor cap,and turn the engine over to see if the rotor button is turning,if it is not,then the timing belt has broke.if the rotor button turns,replace the distributor.

Would crank but would not start in extremely cold weather. Now it won't start at all but fires on and off.


Do a tune-up, Plugs, rotor button and distributor cap. Not sure if your model has a cap or coil pack. When you say fires off and on do you mean it starts off and on or you get ignition spark off and on. If you have a cap, the rotor button can get worn down and not make good contact with the contacts inside the cap. When engine rotates the rotor button rotates inside the cap which produces spark through your plugs wires. If you have a coil pack, it could be going bad. If coil packs get moisture within it and diffuses the spark from going into the plug wires. Moisture and wetness causes a lot of problems with the ignition system, so it's best to apply Di-Electric Grease to the coil pack, wire boots on both ends. The grease stops moisture from getting into the components and sparks from jumping to the moisture.
