I like to make sure the timing belt is not skipped or broken by watching the cam turn inside the valve cover. Then I lay a spare spark plug on valve cover connected to any plug wire to see if it sparks. Fuel can be confirmed by smelling the exhaust, or by using starting fluid . These cars are famous for a coil relay solder break problem. The relay is heat expansion damaged, its mounted high up in the dash drivers side corner it is about 3" square gray.

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Shows on Diagnostic machine that it's the distributor on a 1993 honda civic, used 2 different machines and it still won't start and its not the distributor. What can it be


to get to start you always need;good spark,fuel to plugs,compression to combust.
Do you have a spark at the spark plugs?
These distributors are common for faulty coils and ignitors.Also the dist cap give problems where the coil inside carries spark to the rotor center.Check also the rotor for cracks or center burnt out.I am assuming that this is the internal coil model distributor.
Also check for fuel as they have a common fault with dry joints on the board in the fuel pump relay.
I hope this helps.Get back to me with your test findings and we can get this solved for you.

My 1993 Honda Accord LX was having problems to start during hot weather, I changed the fuel filter, distributor, rotor cap, rotor and now it seems like gas does not get into the engine. What's wrong?


The Main relay on your vehicle is defective. When the relay is operating while the engine is started and running, it gets hot. Add the hot weather to the relay and they break inside. The relay is located on the side firewall driverside above the left kick plate inside the car,and is secured with a 10mm hex cap screw (bolt). Replace this relay, and your vehicle should start.
It looks like this;
