89 Accoed DX automatic, carb'd, hitachi distributor has no spark coming from distributor? Have checked coil and seems within specs to me, have also replaced the ICM inside the distributor.

My sisters 1991 accord had no spark and the coil ohmed to spec but was still bad. Do you have power and ground to the coil and a ground pulse to it?If so then you have a bad coil if the cap and rotor is good etc.

I just found I now have spark and fuel at the plugs but still will not start. Timing or compression?
