SOURCE: No crank, no start, new battery
I've ha the same problem on my 95 civic. Changed the starter, a relay, checked the ignition switch, distributor... and found it was a faulty ground from engine to engine compartment. To check this last solution, simply attach a wire big enough between the engine and chassis and turn the ignition key. If the car starts, you've found your problem!
Hope this can help.

SOURCE: cranks but wont start
the 2 problems are seperate . The starter might have been the one draining your battery. The bushings on a starter can wear out and the core starts to fall down a little at a time until it hits the "beds" This causes the starter to lose speed as it falls. I would recomend that you replace the starter or have it rebuilt. The starting problem may be the coil or coils . although I don't know if your car has an external coil(s) or is built into the distributer.

Buy a bicycle ?
You are having fun !.....................NOT !!!
no 1....Check the fuel inertia switch has not been tripped ?
The problem has to be tied in with something you have done, as it was running till you put your hands on it.
Check back at the battery and make sure you have not pulled off a connection somewhere by mistake in the vicinity of the battery.
Check your fuses with a 12v test light !
Are you getting a spark at the plugs ?
Are you getting fuel pressure to the engine ?
Do you think your cam belt has decided to give up the ghost ? have you ever renewed it ?
Hopefully you have got it running by now ?
If not, try running through these thoughts.
Good Luck !
Please give a FixYa rating, if you think I deserve it !

Ive got a Jetta 2 CSI and had the same trouble. I then discovered that my coldstart packed up, wich you cant even get at the agents anymore. So If you are in the Benoni area I can fix it for you for 'n reasonable price, and you won't have that trouble any longer. Mine is still starting by just touching the key. 0829484343
