What could stop spark to plugs ? .


Asked by Apr 06, 2008 at 04:09 PM about the 1989 Honda Civic Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have no spark and car will not start at all. Coil checks out fine. Main relay sounds fine, there is 12v to the igniter no Ecu errors. Smells like its getting gas. the car has for 2 years wounld not start after
warmed up and shut off for only a few minuts, but after cooling for a few minuts [3-5] it would start and run fine, this was very intermittent so I never needed to or could have it looked at. Any ideas out there? The car has 62k and timing belt is turning disriuter shaft.
Timing mark and No 1 piston look fine.

1 Answer


Could be a lot of different sensors -- crank position, etc.
