Question about 2000 Honda Civic
Changed cap and rotor plug wire and spark plugs not getting fire through cap to plugs
My guess, is you did NOT replace the wires 1by1.
and messed up the firing order. (engine size not posted)
you bought one of this china,no-name POS rotors that fit 3 ways?
or the cap is on backwards
or the wire terms(HV) not seated.
ill assume the dizzy was never unbolted.
never power wash an engine, you force water to places that never must be...
let it dry for a day or 2.
what does FIRE to plugs mean.
i used a grounded tests spark plug , at the end of each spark plug
and there is no spark.
i ask that, because some posters say that , but only mean
the cylinders are dead, and call it no fire.
takes spark, compression and injection and timing to fire.

There is a relay mounted way up under the dash on the driver side. It is about 1"x1"x2" and it says Mitsuba on it. This is the PGMFI relay, sometimes called the main relay or fuel injection relay. It is very likely the problem. You can buy another one, or there was a bulletin on how to repair it. You need to take it out, pop the cover off, and resolder the cracked solder joints on the pc board that the relays are mounted on. Really not that hard if you have a little soldering experience. If not, just buy another one, about 50 bucks.

You need a new distributor, these are a common problem and available new at just about any auto parts store. There are three inductive pick-up coils, a module and coil inside this thing and they go bad. You could try changing the module first, but they are non returnable, if it doesn't fix it, you're stuck. If it does fix it, chances are, the pickup coils are on their way out soon.
I would just get the whole new unit, about a 100 bucks on Ebay, $185 at the store.

Check all of your grounds: There is one in front of the transmission leading from the negative wiring from your battery. Another goes from your battery wiring to the inside of your fender area. 10mm bolt. There is another on your driver's side motor mount to the valve cover. Check all relative fuses too.
Main Relay : Up above your gas pedal. Above your cruise control computer. It will be a gray box or a brown box about 3" square. TO DIAGNOSE: Try to tap it while you try to start it, you might need a helper. If this is it... Don't buy a new one, just pry the cover off of it and look close to find the broken solder connection. Heat the faulty pin until the solder puddles around it and your good to go. It's smaller than a human hair, look close and you'll see the loose connection.

Testimonial: "I'm going to check that first thing in the morning.I really do appreciate your help with this the holidays are over.Thank you very much"
Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps
