91 civic won't start

I just changed the rotor and distributor cap on my 91 Honda Civic 4 door sedan 1.5L engine. The car will not start. I verified and triple checked the firing order as 1-3-4-2. I put the old parts back on just to be sure that it wasn't something I bought but I got the same results. I did not replace the wires but I figured it would be too much of a coincidence for them to be causing this problem.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Sal

When you pulled the wires loose of the plug were you careful to only pull on the boot, or did you pull on the actual wire. Last time I replaced plugs and not the cruddy old wires I pulled the wire off the connecting ring on one and had the same problem. If the wires are real old, and you may have ripped one loose replace the wires.

Thasnks for the replys. I went and replaced trhe wires but still have the problem. I then went and checked the ECU for trouble codes and got a 10 which is intake air temparature and 16 which is check fuel injection system. I have heard that a bad main relay can cause the 16 so I checked that and it seems OK. I am not sure what to check from here.

I found the problem to be the ignition coil. I found the what the resistor readings should be and when I tested ihe coil the readings were to high. Put a new coil in and the car started right up.

Thanks to all for your input.
