With the distributor cap on, start on the top left and go counter clockwise; 4-1-2-3 The Cylinder order on your motor is, from left to right, 4-3-2-1 Just match the numbers and you should be good to go

The plug wires are different lengths for different spark plugs. The best way to not get messed up is to do one wire at a time. Unplug old wire from distributor and plug, compare it to the new ones, find the new one that is the same length and replace. You don't want to get the wires mixed up. Hope this helped.

No spark on the 98 honda civic ex coupe coil is good and icm is good what else could it be?


If the coil is good and giving out spark and your ICM is good the cap can have a missing button which will not allow spark to go to the spark plugs through the plug wires do replace the distributor cap and rotor and spark plug wires

I have a 91 honda civic and need spark plug wire diagram


Fire order
1-3-4-2

Cylinder #1 will be the one closes to the fan belts and so on 1-2-3-4, on the distributor cap there should be a # 1 stamped on it, put cylinder # 1 spark plug wire on that one, install spark plug wire in firing order clockwise on the cap, the cap some time's might even have the firing order on it.

I would check the distributor first....one function of the Civic's distributor is to engage the coil (via the firing switch)....no spark. no fire. I hope this helps.

1989 Honda Prelude won't start


I suspect that your spark plug wires or your distributor is going out. Check your spark wires and distributor. To do that take out #1 spark plug wire from the spark plug. Next take out your spark plug then put it in the spark plug wire. Then turn on car and take a look at the spark plug to see if it's getting a spark. Do this with all the spark plug. If it is your spark plug wire I would replace all of them.
