My Civic wont start

I have a 1999 Honda civic and i was on my way home from church when my car just shut off. i tried turning it back on but it wouldnt turn over. I checked my fuel pump, injectors and and spark plugs and distributor and found that my car was not getting spark but the distibutor turns so i know its not the timing belt . Can someone please help me, i am suppose to be bringing my new born baby home this week

Re: My Civic wont start

the battery is turning the engine over, so its not the battery, if you havnt had to jump your car or put it on a charger latly it probly not the alt. either,
is the car throwing a check engine light (cel),

sounds to me like a dist. coil if it's not getting spark,

Im willing to bet that the ignighter in the distributor is bad, 95% of the time this is what it is. check for spark at the plugs, if no spark you can do 1 of 2 things. Eather replace the ignighter and coil in the dist or you can buy a new dist and the whole thing is new.
