Cranks , wont start. No spark at all . tested all relays seem good .Car ran fine and then just wouldn't start one morning.


When you post a question please make sure you add make model and year this will help determine a more accurate response. However if it turns over and does not start it is likely the crankshaft sensor or lack of fuel getting to the carburetor or injectors.

Hi there!!! i need help!!!! the other day i was looking over my 95 honda civic ex and i took one of the spark wire off and i forgot to put it back on. I drove around the block and it misfire than the car...


check the spark plug wire for any nicks or burns and sometimes the spark plug could be broken and you just cant see it so if you left it somewhere where something could happen to it i would check that out. i dont see your timing jumping unless the tension was loose. also i know how much an engine viberates when you are missing a plug so check for any loose wires. good luck

I need a diagram for a spark plug wires on a 99'


start with the serpentine belt side of the car (passenger) the first plug hole will be #1 then 2-4 as you work your way to the drivers side as Im guessing this is a 4 cylinder. The coil pack on the top of the engine has all the plug wires coming out of it and should be numbered 1-4 go accordingly from there.
