To get to start you always need;good spark,fuel to plugs,compression to combust.
Do you have a spark at the spark plugs?
These distributors are common for faulty coils and ignitors.Also the dist cap give problems where the coil inside carries spark to the rotor center.Check also the rotor for cracks or center burnt out.I am assuming that this is the internal coil model distributor.
Also check for fuel as they have a common fault with dry joints on the board in the fuel pump relay.
I hope this helps.Get back to me with your test findings and we can get this solved for you.

Distributor? Only reason a car won't start is lack of fuel or improper ignition and maybe air starvation.

I have a Honda civic 1.5 vtec 1995. Car cranks but won't fire, then after 3 tries at starting stops cranking. A jump start usually starts the car again and then ok for a couple of months. This is...

sounds like the distributor. over time the distributor could get debris and condensation inside it and cause it to act up here and there.

Pull a spark plug and see if you are getting spark if not it is probably your coil pack on the distributor. Common prob with civics.

1993 Honda Civic will not start when it rains.

i would suspect coil trouble either the top of the coil is cracked or water is getting on to or into high tention wire leading from your coil to your distributor.hint ;on a damp night lift you bonnet start your car and look but do not touch at all high tention wires if there is a high tention problem you will see a blue ark jumping about if so there is your problem.adrian
