    I have a 1990 Crx si with a b16a jdm in it. when i got the car it was already installed... i let it set for 6 months and i just dicided to sell it so i went to start it.. it started right up i let it warm up then i gave it some gas and then i heard a click and it turned off.. i tryed to start it again but the engine would just turn over and not start so i checked to see if it had spark and it didnt.. so i called the guy i got the car from and he told me that it is all integra parts so just to get a 1991 acura integra distributor and cap and it should start i went to autozone and they had the parts 1 in stock i checked with the old one i had and it all matched up so i got it and installed it but still no fire if there is any one that can tell me how to fix this please let me know i will try anything

    It could be one of two things, either a bad igniter in the dizzy or a bad main relay.

    I thought if i got a hole new distributor assembly, cap and rotor they are all new parts i thought that it would fix the problem

    You got a brand new dizzy, a cap and rotor wont usually fix a no spark situation, but if you got a brand new distributor, then my next recommendation would be a bum main relay.

    Yah check ur coils as well..umm could be ur relay but hey no harm in checking right? Usually when coils fail they have a similiar pattern...so thats what it sounds like to me probably completely fried it now.

    Its held up there with a 10mm, once you get ot out you can pull the cover off of it, check to see if the soldering isnt all melted.

    My vote is the main relay. "You heard a click and it shut off" Sounds like it for sure!
