Same problems. 1990 accord lx. Turns over but WONT START. Its getting fuel to the injectors, because I can smell it under the hood after I tried starting it for a bit. But it just seems its not getting spark. I just spoiled her with starter, alternator, battery, battery cables, timing belt, water pump, fuel filter, main relay, spark plugs, plug wires, dist cap and rotor, ALL BRAND NEW. My last resort is either the ignition coil, ignitor, a new ecu, or inspect every single wire, fuse and relay on the whole car. any suggestions before I go out and spend anymore money than I have already?

1990 Accord. Running fine and parked. Next day, cranks but never tries to start. About a year ago same thing happened and it turned out to be the wire plugs that go to the distributor. After hours and hours of trying to figure it out, I unplugged and replugged after inspecting. Fired right up. This time, not so lucky. I pulled a plug wire and getting fire, getting fuel but won't run. My question is, if the relay is bad, what exactly does it do? I would think that it would not allow it to fire?? Also, where is the main relay? Should my next step after relay be the ECU? Any ideas would be appreciated.

I'm having simular problems. My 90 accord would crank but never start, left it parked a few days and now nothing. If you pull up on one of the plugs above the distributor the car can start but sounds weak. Any ideas???

I put the wrong grade of oil in my 98 Camaro,drove it down the street and turned it off. I tried to start it again and it will not turn over. So, I push started it and it will start but will die right after it starts. What is the problem,please?

I've had the same problem as everyone else. I've got a 90 Accord LX and the other day I left my house, it drove two blocks and then died. It hasn't started since. I've replaced the distributor, ignition coil, and spark plugs but I'm still not getting any spark. I'm getting fuel and the battery and ignition switch seem fine. But I live in upstate New York where it's been pretty cold - could this still be the main relay?
