I'm not a qualified mechanic but I have driven all sorts of cars vans and motorcycles.
Starting / Running problems fall in to two categories
(1) High Tension/Low Tension ignition or
(2) Fuel/Air.

For (1) it could be a number of things. Here are a few questions which may help eliminate problems.
Is the battery charged and holding charge (min 13.8 V normally)?
Is the ignition timing correct?
Is there a fault on the coil?
Is there a fault on the Low Tension circuit?
Has the distributer Cap got tracking marks?
Plug Gaps OK?
Are the sparks from the HT circuit nice and blue in color?
Is the "black Brain box" functioning correctly?
 For (2)
Is the air filter clean?
If Carbs are fitted are jets Ok?
If Carbs are fitted ae the diaphrams Ok?
If fuel injection are the injectors OK?
Slow Running set ok on idle?
Fuel filter clean?
Fuel pump functioning?

Hope these help

Try holding the key between II and III in the ignition immediately after you start it. My 95 Del Sol VTEC is at the dealership now for the same issue, it is an ignition switch problem.
