Honda Accord EX vtec 96 no spark

Tony’s question:

i have a honda accord EX vtec 96 and i dont have spark how can i test the ignotion coil.thank you”


The coils rarely go bad on those Hondas, the internals in the distributor go out. they are rather complex inside and even mechanics rarely fix them. We just buy a rebuilt distributor OR a brand new one (and now Chinese made new ones are available and generally cost the same as the old rebuilds, around two hundred dollars.) Simply see if you have power going into the distributor when you turn the key on and crank the engine over. If you do, and have no spark coming out the distributor, just replace it.
