Help Engine stoped running while driving

So here is the what happen, i was drive down the highway to work when my car just shut off. Last christmas my timing belt snapped, had the engine rebuilt and almost everything is new, new starter, alternator, timing belt, water pump, new battery, before i had my engine rebuilt, i put in a new coil, Distributor Cap, and rotor, had new spark plugs, and wires, i just replaced the main fuel pump relay under the dash, i have done everything i know of, what i have been able to find out is there is no spark going to the engine. dont know what to do?

Re: Help Engine stoped running while driving

Welcome to Preludezone.com!!! have you checked out the rules section for newcomers??

but this should help, we need more info
-What year, model, engine do you have??
-How many miles are on it
-is the engine still turning over when you start it
-how do you know there is no spark(try the ground test, place it next to the ground wire on the engine and start it once, have someone check to see if there is a spark)
-what do the plugs look like black or grey
-have you replaced the fuel pump, i know you said the relay but u should have also replaced the pump and fitlers could be a problem but probably is not.
-how did the car die???
-did it bog down trying to give it gas(that would be your fuel pump)
-has it been idling funny or bad-below 750 rpms
-has the idle been "fluxuating" above and below the normal rpm range??
-stick or auto??
-do you have any engine mods
-who rebuilt the engine
-are you mechanically inclined, this is to give a range of what you can do yourself, so you can save money, or we will be able to give you an estimate on what it will cost
-have you triied tapping on the map sensor lol but it does work (sometimes)

Re: Help Engine stoped running while driving

The car is a 92 prelude, sohc 2.2, f22. the car it self has over 230,000 miles on it . The engine still turns over when i start it. I did test for a spark and there was no, i put the spark plug wire up to a ground. the spark plugs look grey. and the fuel pump was replaced a year and half ago. when the key is turn you can hear the fuel pump run. i was going down the hight way about 75 and it just shut off, out of the middle of no where. no the car doesn't idle funny at all, stays where it should. it is a stick. the engine was rebuilt by a place called h tech in austin. the car is all stock. as far as i know. every wire is hocked up right.

Re: Help Engine stoped running while driving

You don't hear it come on when you turn the key is a big indicator. Yeah that's weird. I would've said a bad ground, but you said that's not it, so I dunno. Bump for help.

Re: Help Engine stoped running while driving

if the coil doesn't have a spark, maybe it went bad already.

Re: Help Engine stoped running while driving

i would say check the coil first. it is possible that the coil went bad. thats why they come with a warranty.
