If you're not getting any spark, it may be the coil or the igniter, both of which are located inside the distributor.
If no fuel, you may have a problem with your main relay.
Check out for more information on these components as well as other possibilities.

Your car engine needs 3 things to fire: 1)Fuel, 2)Oxygen, 3)Spark

Oxygen: Check to make sure you have a clean air filter
Spark: Check to make sure you are getting spark, you can pull off a spark plug wire and lay it next to the engine BLOCK while someone else cranks the engine and you can quickly see a spark
Fuel: There is not a quick and easy way to test this, so if the other two tests check out okay, then first try to replace your fuel filter and make sure your vacuum hoses are all connected.

Engine turns over and is getting fire but will not start

Sounds like your starter is going or has gone bad, it may need to be replaced. Also check the battery. If the battery has a dead cell or is losing current it will not start the vehicle. Note: You are dealing with an electrical 'triangle' that is the alternator, the starter and the battery. When either of these is replaced, the other systems should be checked as well. If the brand new starter sends a surge current to a weakened alternator it will short out the alternator. And that's another hit to your wallet.

1991 honda civic si starting problem

have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.

1991 honda civic starter removal

Always start by disconnecting the battery when working with electrical parts on a vehicle. Once that is done then unplug the starter and unbolt the nut under the rubber boot which should be either 8mm or 10mm bolt, i can't remember which. Then next there will be two long 12mm or 14mm bolts holding the starter to the trans...remove them and the starter should lift right out. For installation just do the same but reverse and don't forget the metal gasket and i recommend putting di-electric grease on the electrical connections to keep those in good working order. Good luck
