So I was having trouble with my 96 accord it was sputtering and Hesitant replaced plugs and wires checked my EGR it was good then suddenly out of nowhere it stalled out on me while driving and now it won't start it acts like it wants to but it won't turn over I smacked the starter a few times this is the first time its happened
It sounds like the engine will rotate on a start attempt but will not start and run. On this model the most common cause of this symptom is failure of the ignition coil or ignition igniter. Located in the distributor on most models these parts make the spark that ends up at the spark plugs. Fuel supply problems are not common on this model. The next step in testing is to see the engine is getting spark and fuel, most likely it will be found to be a lack of spark problem. Other less common failure are the main relay and ignition switch.
