How to put back spark plug wires to a 92 honda accord

the easiest way is to do one at a time when working with plugs or wires.but if you don`t then cylinder 1 is on the end of the motor were the pulleys are then 2,3,4.this i think is a distributer system so the cap is usually marked were cylinder 1`s wire is installed.then you have to see which way the distributer rotates.then the next wire to #1 in the direction the distributer rotates will be the next wire in the firing order.the firing order is 1342.

Rebeuilt the engine with new gaskets and seals.

Most likely a timing problem. You may have crossed the plug leads, put the distributer in one tooth out, or not set the valve timing correctly. It could be some other things too, but try these first.

How to install new ingnition wires on a 1995 Honda Accord with a 2.2 liter 4- cylinder engine Wires were detached from the distributor. I need to the know the sequence for the installation of the new...

The firing order on most inline 4's is 1-3-4-2. If number one is marked on the cap then all you have to do is take the cap off and have someone crank the engine with the starter to see which way the rotor turns.
If the cap is not marked remove number spark plug and hold your finger over the hole, while some one bumps the starter. When you feel compression (air blow out of the hole) stop, look at which terminal on the distributor cap the rotor is pointing to, that wire goes to number one. Number one is the one closest to the belt end of the engine. Good luck!

Low spark in 1998 honda accord

Have you tried a set of plugs and wires?If so then you need to take the distributer cap of and check it for "carbon tracking",a black residue on the inside due to a worn pick-up in the cap.You should replace the cap but in a pinch you can remove it[mark all the plug wires first]and wash it with dishsoap the completely dry it out by wipeing it out with a rag and putting it in the oven for about 20 minutes on 150 degrees.Put it back on and get a new cap in the neer future.

Car will not start hasno spark tachometer doesn't work

Your distributer is probably the cause. They are a common problem among hondas. Car will turn over but not start and run right? No spark from spark plugs or tach too. To be sure its not a snapped timing belt, see if you have compression by removing a spark plug and put your finger or some sort of similar object in the hole and see if when cranking the car up if it blows out the object of your finger. I'd bet its the distributer to be honest..but check compression first.
