Perhaps you've unintentionally crossed the spark plug wires?? Find the firing order along with the corresponding distributor connections to determine if this is the case. Then you can correct the connections. Here is a link that will help you: http://autorepair.about.com/library/firing_orders/bl-fo-7593.htm

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned.

No problems really,stalls once in a while. Just curious what consists of a tune-up on my engine. what I should replace and so on.


This would include your spark plugs or coils, the wires, a new distributor cap, an oil change, air filter, fuel filter, and a coolant flush. A tune up can make a car run like new again. Some don't change the fuel filter on a tune up but I have always said it is best too. They can get clogged up over time.

What can i buy for my honda to do a tune up


New sparkplugs, filters, perhaps plug wires... the rest requires diagnostic equipment. I change plugs and filters and if everything is running okay and my mileage is normal, I don't worry about it. If anyone else knows more, I'd like to hear it.

Sounds like fuel problems. Turning your car in any direction has nothing to do with it. I assume your car is fuel in jected. Also that you have had the plugs , wires , cap and rotor replaced. If not do this. Then if you still have the problems the fuel presure has to be checked. That requires an inline gage be attached to check the presure while engine is running. If thats okay, then the fuel presure regulator might be sticking. Of course things like water in the fuel take and filters all need to be checked. Im sorry that its a big job. If you have to pay someone itll cost you money. If they just replace parts (guessing) thats no way to go about it. So plugs, wires, cap and rotor.replace. Then fuel delivery. I suggest you get the book for 15 bucks from autozone. Good luck
