How do you know you are not getting spark?

That is one long sentence there bro. I'm outta breath reading it.

Now, speak sloooowwwly and succinctly... Add periods to the end of sentences, capitol letters at the begining.

What have you done to know you are not getting spark?

Did your check engine light flash? Light up?

Bad battery will not cause your car to turn off while you are driving. But bad battery will not provide the power needed to turn your starter motor long enough to allow your engine to start and keep itself going via alternator power.

Go to the diy section here and download a service manual. Check various chapters for electrical (23), fuel & emmisions(11) engine(4n5?) and follow the procedures those Honda technicians follow when a car like yours is towed into their shop and dropped off.

Relax, take your time, and take it step by step.
Report back here if need be.

Re: wont start!!!!! :'(

Well got it running crank positioning sensor became disconnected when the mount broke and got slack the CV axel caught it and ripped the plug out but now another problem tonight haven't really looked into it much too late got off work at 230 messed with it till 4.. I just got my valve cover gasket replace new plugs and wires and a valve adjustment. Car ran bout 5 miles running strong then choked and cough then died now wont start again just cranks again while making a different noise like a chugging hollow noise. Any ideas?

Make sure you're getting fuel at the rail, spark and compression. Something tells me that this might have something to do with that recent valve adjustment.
