NO START

Alright guys i just bought my girlfriend a 98 prelude. picked it up for cheap from a buddy of mine. when you go to start it all it does it turns over... spark plugs look good. so i'm guessing maybe the ignition coil... still need to get a new cap and rotor for it just be safe. could be fuel. haven't checked the flow yet. just picked it up this afternoon. any thoughts on some other things to check would be great.

Re: NO START

did you check for spark? Fom what you said it sounds like you only checked the spark plugs, you have to check that they are actually producing spark.

Re: NO START

Are you getting a spark?
Are you getting fuel?
Is the starter cranking the engine?

Check for a spark first. Could be anything from Spark plugs, spark plug wires, coil, distributor, main relay, or ignition switch.

Call Honda and see if your car was under the Ignition switch recall.
