First, remember you need spark and gas. Do you have both? Run a fuel pressure test. Then run a spark test. If you have both. next do a compression test for each cylinder. Too low? You need a new engine. Just right? Go to next step...


Check underneath the distributer AND inside the cap. Is there any oil under the distrib. or inside the cap? If so, you may need a new distributer, especially if oil is found inside the cap and rotor.

If this checks out OK. Next, open the oil fill cap on top of your engine block. Look inside while someone else tries to make it start. Is the shaft inside the hole moving/rotating while the car is trying to be started? If not, you needle to replace the timing belt.

The last test is a starter test. Locate the starter and get a long pry bar. While your assistant tries to start, you start to strike the started with the pry bar, if the car suddenly starts ; you need to replace the starter.

Engine died while driving, no spark, replaced coil, now starts, idles, runs well at low rpm, but misfires when accelerating. No check engine costs thrown. What should I check next.


Change your ignition module. The distributor is a weak point of the Honda, I will always change out the whole thing than just try the coil.

Spark plug wiring from distributor cap to spark plugs on a 95 honda civic dx 1.5 liter 16 valve sohc


If you look at the distributor cap from the wires side carefully, you would find either a line mark on one of the outer side of four holes (where the spark plug wires are inserted) or the numbers printed on the top of distributor cap (1,3,4,2). Fix one end of the longest high tension plug wire into number 1 hole or the one marked with a line mark on the distributor cap and the other end on spark plug number 1 (the number 1 plug is toward the pulleys and the belts side, then No 2, No 3 and No 4). While standing in front of right wheel you will see the distributor cap in front of you. The rotor moves clock wise. After you fix the 1st cord, next comes number 3 plug wire. Insert one end of the cord into the next to 1 on the right hand side and press the other side of the cord on spark plug number 3. Next to 3 is the cord number 4 and the last one is number 2.

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 suspect either the distributor or timing belt went south.
Can you remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor is turning while you crank the engine over?
if the rotor doesnt turn... , its the timing belt.

check for spark , but chances are , its the distributor... I've seen many honda distributors go bad .

sounds like your rotor is bad, it does happen, and that would explain no spark to ignition wires to the plugs-look inside the distributor cap too, and replace it if you see moisture, hairline cracks, or the terminals are badly oxidized.

It stalled and won't start. It has gas, the battery is fine, I changed the spark plugs. I did get it to start rolling it but it soon died again. When it was running in sounding like it was arcing.


most common problem : igniter , distributor cap and rotor.
Open distributor cap , look inside.
probably cheaper to replace distributor assy. , as it comes complit unit with coil , igniter , hall sensor , cap and rotor.

I replaced my spark plug wires on my 1996 chevy truck. may have crossed one,need a diagram from the spark plugs to the distributer cap.


Since you didn't state whether it is a V6 or V8, I'll give you both.

V6 -4.3Liter
Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap, faces the front of the engine.

->Drivers side, spark plug order in engine, starting from the Front going back:
1-3-5
->Passenger side, spark plug order in engine,
starting from the Front going back:
2-4-6

If it's Electronic, the distributor cap has a Left side, (Drivers side), and a Right side, (Passenger side)
Starting from the Front, going back on the Left side,
3-1-5
Starting from the Front going back on the Right side,
2-4-6

V8-5.0, 5.7, and 7.4Liter
Firing Order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap,
faces Front, towards the Drivers side.

Electronic distributor cap has two sides. Drivers, (Left), side and Passenger, (Right), side.
Starting from Front going back on Drivers side,
1-7-3-5
Starting from Front going back on Passenger side,
8-2-4-6

Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Drivers side:
1-3-5-7
Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Passenger side:
2-4-6-8
