1996 Honda Accord 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 159000 miles
We have tested the battery, set the timing by the marks on the sprockets to the non moving marks, double checked the firing order.
Initially when I got the car the sprag was going out inside the tranny , so we replaced the tranny and off we went , but the car kept stalling out & had to restart it almost every block to get it back to the garage. I can hear the 2 seconds of fuel pump run , then the click in the main relay (which we alsio tried a new relay.) & now I hear another click or snap , near the distributor.
I have checked and worked all the grounds and connectors to make sure they are all making contact. I also checked all fuses inside & under the hood several times. I also cleaned the contacts going into the fuse box under the hood.
VERY WEAK white SPARK with no snap , FROM 2ND USED DISTRIBUTOR , NOT ENOUGH TO START THE CAR. REPLACED , CAP,ROTOR, WIRES, PLUGS,IGNITION MODULE, TEMP SENSOR,,COIL, TDC & CYP SENSORS DUE TO GETTING THOSE CODES P1361 & P1381.
DID THE BYPASS CHECK ON THE IGNITION SWITCH & STILL NO START.
IT STARTED EACH TIME AFTER CHANGING THE IGNITION MODULE & COIL AND THE DISTRIBUTOR , BUT THEN DIED AS SOON AS I GIVE IT MUCH GAS. NOW ITS BACK TO NOT SATRTING AT ALL AND HAS A VERY WEAK SPARK , BUT THE NEW COIL PUTS OUT 12VOLTS. GUESS BOTH DISTRIBUTORS COULD BE BAD and I may need a new one? But honestly after using every forum and picking peoples brains we are all at a loss here. Please help.
