    i have a 93 civic ex and it wont start. there is no spark so i change the ignition coil and the igniter or ignition moduel and there is still no spark. i can hear the fuel pump run and there is power to the injector. i looked at the fuse and there all good. the only thing i havnt look at is the main relay but if that was bad, would there be no fuel too. any input will help.

    Try resetting your ecu and get the code. Or you can test the resistivity of the ECT sensor when the engine is cold. The resistivity is inversely proportional to the temperature of the coolant. (Check manual for specified temps)

    A faulty ECT sensor can cause difficulty starting a cold engine and frequent stalling when warmed up.
