My poor wagon was driven through water and we had to replace plugs, oil, oil filter, plug wires, distributor, button, air filter and valve cover gasket. It started and ran for approximately 5 miles, then died in traffic and would not start, it has spark, and fuel to fuel rail, new distributor is dry. Water came up as high as console between seats. Any ideas.

The computer is located under the carpet, passenger side, where passengers feet would be. If the water was up to the console, your computer was doing the back stroke, and I'm afraid it drowned. Sorry! countrycurt0

Start with a routine tune-up. New air filter, new spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor button. Make sure the sparkplugs are gapped correctly before installing. Plug wires are less likely to go bad, so I would hold off on that.
When did you last have a tune up? Sounds like it's not running on all four cylinders. Check the oil to make sure they filled it to the correct level, but the oil change should not be related. With the engine cold, check the wires at the distributor cap, to make sure they are inserted completely, also that they are connected properly to the spark plugs. If you're not sure when it was last tuned, or it's been quite a while, replace the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor. It won't cost much for parts, and you can do it yourself to save $$. Let me know how it goes, or if you need further help. Curt
Fuel filter (faceing Engine) is on the Left of the firewall below the black box with vac. lines going to it There is a bolt 10mm head at that box which will allow you to flip box without disconnecting vac.lines. Good Luck
My 92 Honda Accord LX was having the same problem, after replacing the the fuel filter, spark plugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor. My engine light was on and I had the car computer read to determine what was exactly wrong, the reading was 100% accurate and I changed the part that was needed myself and the car has been performing past 40mph.
