If the coil is good and giving out spark and your ICM is good the cap can have a missing button which will not allow spark to go to the spark plugs through the plug wires do replace the distributor cap and rotor and spark plug wires
This site says that there is only an in tank filter that is accessed under the rear seat: http://www.civicforums.com/forums/109-7th-gen-do-yourself-articles/307208-classic-diy-fuel-filter-replacement.html
If you're getting power to the CD player then there's power to the radio. The antenna involves the grid on the rear window, an antenna coil and cable to the radio. You can check the grid for a break and if it's small you're auto parts store will have a repair kit. My 05 Accord rear window defogger did not work and it took Honda 2 attempts to repair it. Other than checking the grid I would bring it to the dealer.
Check to make sure that the antenna and antenna wire are in good shape. If you don't use it much a critter may have gotten under the hood and chewed the wire. If that is the case, a cable (tv) repair can fix it. You may need to replace the entire antenna wire.
Hope I've helped. If so please rate my answer and leave a comment. If not,I apologize and would ask that you re-post. Thanks and good luck.
The 96-98 Civic EX came with an OBD2A D16Y8 engine. That is the only engine that will go in as a direct replacement with your current engine ECU. It's an SOHC VTEC engine that has two extra connections not found on the other 96-98 Civic engines - a VTEC solenoid and a special oil sensor used to determine if VTEC engagement is possible. If you swap in an older Civic engine (92-95 generation) you'll have to convert the car to OBD1 (requires a special adapter hardness) and run the ECU that goes with whatever engine you use. This will break functionality of your OBD2 diagnostics port, and depending on which state you live in will cause you to fail emissions checks. If you install a D16Y8 engine from a 99-00 Civic EX, you will have to swap the intake and exhaust manifolds from your old engine to the new engine, and you will be able to continue to run your existing OBD2A wiring and ECU. The 99-00 Civic EX engines have additional sensors, since those engines are OBD2B. The easiest fix would be to find a SOHC VTEC D16Y8 from a 96-98 Civic EX, as it would be a direct plug and play replacement.
If the radio is aftermarket, they cross the circuitry of the antenna near the defroster, causing static in the antenna everytime you turn it on. Disassemble the radio and check for the wiring. Worst case scenario: they used the Positive wiring for the defogger switch and connected a wire to the radio's ACC cable.
