1997 Civic LX
I have a D16Y7, My car recently broke down. Before it broke down the engine would start to cut out, and lose power. It became more and more frequent until it finally broke down. I used to be able to drive it for a 1/4 mile or so before it would act up and break down again but now it is broke down and I can't get spark. When it would break down it would sputter. The tach would just fluctuate around 0, and when it finally did die, it would sometimes backfire or smoke would come out the intake. I checked for spark on all my cylinders but by the time I got to the last one I stopped getting spark. I thought it may have been the ignition coil so I put a different blaster 2 coil to it and still nothing. Now I don't get spark to anywhere. I changed my spark plugs because they were fouled out. I also changed the cap and rotor. This had no effect on my problem. All symptoms point to a bad CKP but I was making sure it wasn't just the MSD that went bad. I also checked the female end of the wiring harness for the CKP with a test light and got no power to anything? I don't know if that is supposed to have power or not. My car had a code for a speed sensor before it broke down but now it doesn't have any codes at all. When my car is sputtering, pressing the throttle does nothing. Now I don't get any spark, so my car won't start. I was making sure that the MSD didn't just go bad before I dug down in and changed the sensor. Thanks for all of your help, I am young and inexperienced.
