Have you tried starting fluid or checked for spark? If it firers up briefly on starting fluid it's a fuel problem. If it won't and there is no spark it's a spark problem. Knowing which will help greatly.

No problem, the site not me sends the phone call. Have you tried starting fluid or checked for spark? If it firers up briefly on starting fluid it's a fuel problem. If it won't and there is no spark it's a spark problem. Knowing which will help greatly.

ok thankyou very much i'll try and let you know...Ohh can you tellme why it can't be connected to a diagnostic machine,,
Expert:  Honda-Man replied 18 days ago.

The diagnostic port or OBD2 port(connector) wasn't in the Accord until the 1995 model year. Yours is a OBD1 system. Yours has a 2 wire connector that you can jumper with a wire or paper clip to get the check engine light to flash a code. There is no connector on yours to read data or check sensors, it's a old school system.

Thanks please remember to rate, the question will remain open so you can still come back once you have tried the starting fluid.
