1994 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

My civic will not crank sometimes, it will turn over but not fire up. It does it especially when hot and humid outside and you never know when its not going to crank. Replaced the distributor recently because the ignition module went bad. Any suggestions?

Do you
have the same problem?

Do below to find out if its fuel or spark problem that's causing it not to start-something has to give.

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, 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
