If a 93 Integra won't start is it because of an electrical problem?

I had the same problem. Check all of your spark plugs, if they smell like gas they are burned out. You should replace your spark plugs and check your distibutor, not the distributor cap. If that turns out to be the problem replace the distributor, distributor cap, and the rotor. If you turn the key to start the car, but nothing happpens, the starter's bad. If the car turns over but doesn't fire up, then the igniter/coil in the distributor might have gone bad.

Why while testing spark plugs on 1999 Chrysler Cirrus you take one plug wire out put back in and then the car dies and will not restart Changed all plugs wires and distributor cap but will not start?

For some reason when you take a plug wire off while the car is running it blows the control module built into the distributor. You will have to replace the whole distributor to fix. I have had this happen twice on my 96 Cirrus.

How do you change distributor cap on Honda civic 93?

Unplug the wires going into the distributor cap, be sure you know which wire goes to which terminal or your car will not start if they are wrong. Remove the 3 bolts that hold the plastic cap to the metal distributor. Put the new cap back on, replace the bolts, and plug the wires into the appropriate terminal.

How to replace ignition coil on 94 Camry?

The coil is inside the distributor so we are going to pull it. First, remove the distributor cap. There is a bolt at the top that is easy to see and one at the bottom of the distributor that you can't see but remove both and the distributor should now be loose and ready to be removed. There is an electrical connector on the right side of the distributor that needs to be disconnected also. Note the position of the rotor, 3 o'clock, 9 o'clock, etc. You will need that to reposition the distributor when you reassemble everything. Pull the distributor out and be careful to keep the rubber gasket and keep it in good shape. Turn the distributor upside down and you will see the coil. Buy a new one first so you will know exactly what you are looking for. Four screws hold it in and two nuts hold on the wire. Replace the coil and reassemble being careful to put the rubber gasket on carefully. If it is the coil that is bad, the car will turn over and try to start but there will be now spark AT ALL. It will not fire but it will continue to turn over. It seems these go out when you shut the car off or as soon as you try to start the car.

What would a car do when trying to start if distributor cap is broken my car has weird chugging sound when trying to start whants to start but doesnt?

If the dist cap is broken, electricity takes the path of least resistance so and will follow the cracks and jump onto the block instead of following the paths of the wires. Thsi is why you are getting so much misfire. Replace the cap.....
