Question about 1991 Honda Accord
Wont cause wire to pop up but will cause a no start
Posted on Nov 17, 2009
Your car is not a three cylinder (although without that plug connected, it is, which is probably why it won't start).
I can't think of a reason for a plug wire to pop up by itself. It's only function is to bring spark from the distributer to the plug.
As you know, your car has plug wires with a very long reach (they go way down inside the valve cover before they seat on the plug) Pull the one you are having a problem with all the way out and inspect the bottom of it. The metal inside the rubber insulator should be roughly round and should not be greatly expanded. If that is the case, next take out the plug and see if it is damaged in any way. If not, try connecting the plug wire to the plug while the plug is out. If it is a tight fit, put the plug back in, connect the plug wire by pushing it directly down on the plug, and try starting the car. If it is not a tight fit, you can grip the portion of the plug connector that seats on the plug with a pair of plyers and work it into a smaller circumference so that it will fit the plug more tightly.
Hope this gets you started.
