What codes show up?
We had the same problem with our 1998 Ford Ranger XLT 4.0L, had the code come up with P0720 (Output Speed Sensor) Replaced the OSS with no luck! Replaced the ALTERNATOR and the BATTERY and problem solved!!! (so far). Will let you know if the problem returns.
Recently my dad's Chrysler Town and Country Van would not shift into 3rd or 4th, and when we put the scanner on it, Codes P0700 & P1767 came up. After GOOGLING these codes, I found out that when both of these codes come up together I needed to replace the TRANSMISSION CONTROL SOLENOID. Problem solved!!!
I think you should invest into a HONDA CIVIC REPAIR MANUAL!
I had to change my CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR and I had a repair manual to go by. It wasn't that hard to replace. Had to take the TIMING BELT COVER OFF and it's to the right side of the belt. The book should indicate the location of the SENSOR.
Not sure why it's not turning over but if the car sounds like a "diesel bus ", then I suggest getting the timing chains replaced. Had mine changed at 231,000 miles. My Nissan 200sx had 2 timing chains. Good luck...
HELP, it's driving me nuts!
