See idk all I know is I took a screw driver and took the spark plug wires and it wasn't getting any fire someone said it could be my relay then someone else said it was my timing belt which when I turned the key over the oil is moving so I don't think its my timing belt

Ok simple test to see if its the timing belt. Remove the distributor cap. Look at the rotor and see if it moves when you turn the key. If it dose your good. Now as for a educated guess. Change around the relays in the fuse box. See if that helps.

I did that with the timing belt and it moves thank goodness what do you mean change around the relay in the fuse box?

36,785

The relays are the little black boxes in the fuse box. If the one that controls the ignition is bad then by changing it with one that works your Engin will start. Just be for warned. The fuel pump also is on a relay. So it could get tricky.

Will the relay cause the engine to want to start but it isnt? Cause the fuel pump is good now it kicks on and stuff when I turn the key over

The relay is like a fuse. But when it is good it will reset it's Self. Btw is this vehicle fuel injected?

Best that you Google 1996 Honda Dx Cam Position Sensor. If I recall correctly its down on the front of the engine. Try YouTube for instructions and videos on how to replace it. It's not a hard job and its not a ungodly expensive part.
