1990 accord won't start, engine turns over and put in new spark plugs and wires. What else should I check/do?

Check for gas and spark to the engine. I'm thinking a '90 accord might be multi-point injection, although they transitioned about then from throttle body injection to multi-port injection. Either way, you need to check if the injectors are firing and putting gas into the engine. Does the fuel pump work? Is there pressure in the gas feed line?
Usually, a no start is because the engine has lost either fuel or spark. You need to check for both. Use a spark tester from parts store- a cheap and easy test for spark.

Will start but when apply fuel it chokes out and dies

Two common issues on these old Accords that no one ever mentions. First, replace the main relay (It's located in a tight spot under the driver's side of the dash behind the silver cruise control module). It's notorious for causing fuel starvation problems because over time the soldering on the connections on the relay crack when it's hot, and will make contact when it's cold. You can find videos on Youtube on where it's located and how to replace it. Just search "1990 Honda Accord main relay". Second, you don't need a scanner to diagnose an OBD1 system. There is a self diagnostic plug located on the passenger side near the kick panel below the dash. Google "1990 Honda Accord Self Diagnostic CEL Lights" to find out how to do it and get CEL codes and descriptions.

I have a 2002 Honda Accord V6. When I go to start the engine, it takes forever! It cranks but will not start for a long time. Someone said it may be the fuel pressure regulator, does anyone else know

Could be the fuel pump, fuel filter, plugs, wires, cap, rotor. Did you have anybody do a fuel pressure test on it. I've owned honda's before. How many miles since timing belt was change. Timing could be off. You can test with a timing light or by having it hooked to a diagnostic tester at Autozon, O'riellys or Advance Auto.

They go UNDER the valve cover in the slight recesses around the plug holes(might use a dab of RTV sealant to keep them in place, or do so by adhering them to the recesses in the valve cover itself, making sure to let the sealant dry a bit so they do not fall out when you put the valve cover in place), NOT down in the plug holes from the top as some people seem to think.
Hope this helps you.
