    Can someone help me? As I put in the title I have spark, fuel is going through the lines, but the engine just keeps cranking over and over and never starts. I posted a similar problem to this a few months ago, however, I fixed it by putting a new positive battery cable from honda on there. I've already checked that cable and it checked out okay. Has anyone had this problem. If so could you please help me!!!!!!!! My car is 91 crx si.

    Thanks
    Shawn

    yeah, make sure your wires are correct.

    The cylinders as you look at the engine go 4 3 2 1, and the firing order is 1 3 4 2.

    If that doesn't work, check the compression.
