    I have a 91 Civic with a stock engine, and I am having a problem with getting it started. It will turn over, but Im not getting spark with a new distributor. Could it be the main relay?

    Yep I made sure of that. A distributor is easy to put in. It only takes 20 mins. or so.

    i just finished puttin a new stock motor in my 91 and had the same problem and it turned out to be a small ground wire under the distributor, kinda next the the starter. you might check for something like that.

    The ground on the t-stat is a common one people forget to hook up.

    When you turn your key on dose the check engine light come on for a couple seconds and then go off?

    I forgot it once it took me 2 days to figure out what was going on.

    I think it does. I dont know iv always been out side of the car when my friend tries to start it. The guy who had it before us did some weird wiring. Its every where.
