'98 integra won't start

Discussion in 'Car Forum' started by quichedem, Oct 13, 2005.

  1. My '98 is not getting spark. Checked fuses, but no dice. Also just ordered an electrical troubleshooting manual for wiring diagrams and voltages. Plan to test that when is comes in. Just wondering if anyone else had this problem. Starter motor goes, but no spark. If it isn't the coil pack, might be wiring?

    I like annoying people.
    Pull off the oil cap, have some one crank the the engine, is the camshaft moving??
    Next is pull the cap off, check and see if the rotor looks okay. These year hondas and acuras have a problem with the dist.. Lack of lube causes the the shaft to burn up the dist. Basically it burns up the ignitors:(
     
  4. Seen a lot of rotor set screws come loose, as Rob1035 mentioned. In fact, it's the first thing I check when I get in a Honda/Acura with a cranks won't start complaint.
     
  5. Thanks for the replies. I am unable to access internet often, so I am just getting to read this. What you've posted seems to narrow it down to some real p.i.t.a. work. Anyone wanna buy an integra?
