My Honda has spark but wont start

Asked by Apr 27, 2017 at 09:16 AM about the 2000 Honda Civic Coupe EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car started misfiring a few months ago.
We replaced the plugs and wires. The
misfiring continued. Then the car started to
lose power trying to stall if I didn't keep
RPM's up. I put it in neutral and it died. We
replaced the distributor cap, rotary button,
spark plugs, coil pack, plug wires and
throttle position sensor. The car will crank
but won't start. We've run out of ideas.

Check the fuel pump pressure. Change out the fuel filter first.

It's getting plenty of fuel. Plugs are wet. It won't even start with ether.

Check to see if there is spark from all the spark plug wires. Look to see what the spark looks like. It should be white, bluish in color, not a orange color.
