Having problems with your 1988 Honda Accord 4 Door ?
1988 honda accord -wouldnt start- there is power to the fuel pump will turn over just not start- what am i missing?
Pull a spark plug lead off and put a spare plug in, hold it against the block while a helper cranks the engine over. If you have no spark, make sure that the camshaft is turning as it is possible the timing belt has broken. Sometimes you can look through the oil filler at the cam while someone cranks, if you can't see through there, you can take the distributor cap off. This will also allow you to check to make sure that the rotor is firmly attached to the distributor shaft. Sometimes the little screw that holds it on, drops out and the rotor falls off. If the rotor is turning and you had no spark, it is possible you have either a bad distributor pick-up coil or module inside the distributor, a bad pgmfi relay, or a bad ignition switch. If you check for spark, have none, and the distributor is turning, post back here and I'll help you narrow it down further.
