BATTERY DIED AND WE HAD TO PUSH START IT, NOW IT WON'T RUN AT ALL

1990 Honda Accord • 182,000 miles

The car will only start in the mornings or evenings when it is cool outside, not when it's hot, how should we fix it?The battery had died, but it started fine when we push-started it. After that, it hasn't started in the heat. The starter, spark plugs and wires, ignition coil, and the cap and rotor have all been replaced since then and it still won't start. Thank you for your help.

Hot or Cold -Do below

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
