You need to remove the "waxy" squares. The spark plugs are underneath them. There should be two without the squares also. Hope this helps.

1996 accord will not start has no fire to plugs


start with a new distributor cap and rotor button. Should probably replace the plug wires too. If still nothing, look to see that you're getting spark from the coil to the distributor.

I have abmw 3 series 1996 parked it last night perfectly ok this morning it wont start the engine turns over very quick as normal could it be because its damp and cold outside what do you suggest?


I would replace Distributor Cap & Rotor; and especially all Ignition Wires (aka: spark plug wires) When it is damp outside, old and possibly cracked wires is the leading cause of engines not starting due to wires arcing (throwing sparks to other parts of the engine) and causes no spark where it is really needed and that is at your spark plugs so the engine will start.

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

Shutter Fluttering


Open the hood and look down at the front of the cylinder head, right above the the exhaust manifold. I would suggest changing the spark plugs, the plug wires, the coil wire, the distributor cap and the rotor button.tarting with the wires. Sound like the electricity is arcing to the surounding metal surfaces.

Spark after i changed distributor cap but wont start


sounds like you haven't indexed the rotor correctly or the cap isn't seated correctly.  Did you replace the plug wires correctly?  Dis you bump the position of the distributor?

Won't start, fuel pump runs at key on, spark at coil wire into distributor is yellow, little or no spark at plug wire ends


Sounds like bad distributor cap or rotor. If ones bad, might as well change both. Take off the cap and if there is a black color on the ends of the prongs, or on the end of the rotor, time to replace. Is it getting fuel into motor?
