Your vehicle has a distributor cap and spark plug wires. On newer vehicles a typical tune-up consists of replacing the spark plugs as caps and wires have been replaced by individual coils. For your application Honda recommends replacing the spark plugs at 90K miles. If you plan to keep the car and drive it another 90K miles, I would replace the spark plugs with quality platinum’s, the distributor cap and wires and a throttle body cleaning service.

Good luck..
