SOURCE: my 92 accord turns but have no spark

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.

SOURCE: no fuel no spark 1990 honda accord

other than the timing belt being broken, it sounds like the crank sensor in the distributor. get a used distributor. but first pop cap off and see if it is turning with engine.

SOURCE: 1994 honda accord will start runs awhile then cuts out .

Could be fuel delivery; fuel filter clogged, worn fuel pump.
Does it still have battery power when it dies, cranks but no start? How long does it take to start again? When does this occur, engine hot/cold? Does it happen all the time or sometimes? How long does it run until it cuts?

SOURCE: 1991 honda accord get gas,spark,timing rihgt and

Is there any reason that you have not checked the valve lash on the engine?It's really quite simple and if you have misadjusted intake valves the car will never start. Not to mention with while adjusting valves you will have to double check crank and cam timing twice (once at cylinder 1 adjust and once at cylinder 4 adjust)at the same time you will also be abble to watch dist.rotation and again be able to see that the dist rotor is in the correct firing position in junction with cam timing.ANYTIME a honda or acura has belt replaced you will check valve clearances,it changes with different belt tention on end of camshaft. when distributor was replaced was ignitor unit replaced,and coil (both inside dist. housing)replaced at this time?Hondas and Acuras both are notorious for failed ignitors and coils.(intermitantly even)this can result intermitant spark(either of the two) or weak spark when failing coil is problem. you may have spark but how hot is it?And last but not least ,most affordable but extremely coomon not ever replace spark plugs on honda with anything but NGK spark plugs,if you use bosch ,bosch platinums you "WILL" see running problems and or no start!!!!!splitfire plugs will be destroyed within weeks in a Honda!And use nothing but a Honda Distributor Rotor. T.E.C is manufacturer of Honda cap & Rotors.You may be thinking to yourself how silly and anal i am about those things but i can say i have seen hundreds of civics,integras,preludes,with no starts,poor performance,etc,with customers"just replaced plugs,cap and rotor,they should be good they were expensive bill at checker said they were the best".hundreds of dollars later and driving out with NGK plugs and honda cap and rotor,lesson learned

1991 honda accord will not start, it's getting fuel and spark but will not start

Could be a weak coil or bad ignition module located in the distributor. I would replace the coil if you have not ever done so then the ignition module. The coils last about 150k miles and then can go anytime after that. I've owned four 90's Hondas and they have all had this problem. If neither of those things work then you may have a bad distributor.

No spark no fuel

when there is no spark there will not be fuel most the time
THE ECU cut fuel when it see 3 forms of lost spark.
find no spark reason. at all spark plugs and coil,
did you do the check light test,? CEL flash tests.
insert jumper wire.
crank for 5 seconds
the flash codes (3 above) flash out telling you why spark is bad.
all cars 1988 to now USA.

for get fuel
fix spark and bingo fuel happens.
if fuel dont happen, with spark the try test fuel.
if test fuel fails with spark the cam belt threw or slipped and
the compression is now way below 150PSI ,wot.

Your car has both a crank and cam position sensor. First start with your crankshaft position sensor. It is located by the harmonic balancer on the front of the motor.

I would check the crank sensor located on the bell housing. This senses that the engine is turning and allows a spark to be produced. No sensor no spark.

I have no spark in my 1987 honda accord i replaced the coil and distributor all main fuses are good and the fuses are good as well where is my main ignition relay located ? or is that the problem

there is no relay. test the coil circuit by turning the key on and momentarily grounding the negative terminal to see if the coil will release a spark. If yes, suspect your ignition module is bad. If no, suspect your ignition switch or wire is bad.

95 Honda Accord Won't Start

well seems i would normaly says its the coil but i have my fellings after reading all your info that you may have a dead short leadings to your coil, a dead ecu or a bad coil... hear is why if you replaced the relay and found 2 clicks then the system arched voltage back through the wire untill it fried your relay so i feel that your problem is after the relay, not before you will need a wireing diagram to test your wires, this is where i would start simply because its the cheapest thing to start with. once you have checked the wires if that is not it I can get you a test procidure to eliminating the ecu as the fualt I will have to have a little more info than just the modle and year... Modle, year, engine size, sohc, dohc ????
good luck let me know if you need more help
