2001 Honda Civic Repair Question
Car cranks but won't start
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 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 okay-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,cap and rotor,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
very common for the distributor to fail. check powers and grounds. if it is ok, I would get a rebuilt unit and install it. it can only go in one way.

If you read my message you see that about 90% of the things you tell me to do I already did it. The car has coil on plugs. They are getting ground and 12v. If fuel pressure is within specs(40psi) Its telling that fuel pump and regulator are working. Please somebody with more help.

Don't have spark in any of the cylinders. You don't have spark she'll never fire up-start testing the ignition system and follow my suggestions-don't expect a quick fix bcuz its free this can be a nightmare.
Thanks, but Im stuck. The coil on plugs have 3 wires(power,ground, and v-ref). Its getting 12.54v to each plug and ground, but not spark. All I have left, I think, to check is the CKP and ECM. Oh, and what could be making the injectors to don't work neither?
