Honda Accord won't start

1993 4cyl. 5 Speed. Started a few months ago by not being able to start. Did it once or twice over a 3 month period and now it has happened daily for the last week. (Cranks fast but will not fire.) Have read several posts here about the relay switch but I have not noticed any correlation between the car being hot/cold or the car sitting out in the sun. Any way to check the switch? Any other thoughts of what may cause this?

My 87 Accord had this type of problem (cranked but wont start) a few times.

When it did it only when HOT, it was the main relay.

The other 2 instances it did it, was due to plug wires that were past their life and a cap/rotor that was crap. Like Joe said, start with he basics, especially tune-up related stuff that hasn been done in a while.
