1997 honda accord no spark, motor turns over just fine, we've changed the distributor cap, rotor button, spark control module, coil, and the crank sensor in a period of about two weeks. and each thing we replaced the car ran fine for about 3 days then it died again. No oil on plugs. when we have the no spark problem you wait 20 to 30 min car will start

Sounds like the coil. Can you try it with the old coil. Coils are sometimes sensitive to temperature. Try it in cold and worm temps.
Hope this helps.

Could be the ignition coil or ignition module. Also check the ignition fuse.

Still at a lost with my 1996 4 cylinder. Honda Accord .won't start no visible spark at the. Ignition coil.,distributor cap or wires changed coil, and the main relay, problem still exists, won't start

There's a crankshaft sensor and it is possible to have a few if the teeth of timing belt missing. Which the belt wikl look fine. But will not turn the cam. Which will leave you with out fire. Chech the rotor under distributor cap and see if it is turning? No turn? Timing belt is bad. If it turns? Crank sensor is bad.

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.

It will crank, but wont start. spark plugs are not firing

Most of the time,on that model,it is the distributor,if the timing belt has not broken,pull the distributor cap,and turn the engine over to see if the rotor button is turning,if it is not,then the timing belt has broke.if the rotor button turns,replace the distributor.

Unfortunately you probably need a new distributor. There are three pick-up coils mounted down inside the base of it. They go bad quite commonly. The unfortunate part is; the new distributor will come with a new cap, rotor, coil and module...which you have already bought. The distributors are not that expensive though, maybe you can sell the extra parts???

1992 Honda Accord LX won't start - ignition problems

I would remove the distributor cap and crank the engine over . If the rotor does not turn , then you need to replace the timing belt. The timing belt needs to be replaced every 60 K. If the rotor turns then make sure you have spark to a spark plug. Run a compression test on each cylinder. The basics to run are compression, spark, fuel and timing.
