Sounds like the timing is off. I wouldn't recomend continuing trying to start it as you may damage something. The only way to fix that is to purchase a Haynes manual and follow the steps for distributor replacement.

1996 honda accord will not go over 3500 rpm

Check for codes with a scanner or by bridging the diagnostics port found under the glove compartment. If it getting code 4 its surely the distributor. Honda go into fail safe at 3500 when the crank sensor goes bad Inside the distributor or monitor / ignition module. It\'s a one piece unit. Entire distributor needs replaced it dons\'t get sod separately. If your getting no codes don\'t be fooled its still the distributor. But check the cars side of the engine harness and plugs at Distribtor. Some years not sure 97 96 started having the crank sensor behind the timing belt bolted to the oil **** housing outer face. Its 2 sensors 180 deg from each other reading off of the lower crank timing pulley. Guaranteed problem solver. Check wires for breaks corrosion and if still no go it\'d be a bad ecm.

1996 Honda Accord cranks and starts sometimes. It

It is the fuel pump relay and I replaced mine on my 1988 accord. That one was above the kick panel on the drivers side about a foot and a half up. not easy to get to. Having the new one helped identify the old one. Now an 88 is 8 years from a 96 and I can't tell you exactly where yours is but mine did that too and the new one fixed it. I took the old one apart and you could see the bad contacts. HTH PS Laid off too.
