I was driving down the road today in my 1989 honda accord and it just powered down. Just like I had shut it off. It turns over but won't start. Any sugestions.

Timing belt must have broken. Car will crank but not start and immediately power down when the belt brakes.

It might be the igniters/ignitors, i had a 1991 honda civic si and a 1996 acura integra gs-r that did the same thing. I think honda/acura needs to recall some cars, its very dangerous. The ignitors are on the firewall towards the back of the engine, the look like cylinders.
