Check to see if the wires are in the proper order on the cap. They possibly let the oil run into the cylinders without removing the oil before they removed the plugs initially.

I asked him about it and he said thr right but when i looked in my honda repair book it shows where spark plug#1 starts and then it says counter clockwise? Dose that mean that # 2 plug should be after the #1 and so on?
of GT Service Center on January 09, 2014
Your firing order is 1-3-4-2, they should be sequenced accordingly. Just make sure that #1 is in the proper placement of how the distributer is set for top dead center #1 and adjustment for firing time.

I now know what is wrong it was number 4 cylinder its not working at all and the compression test was good no problem there so my next step is the fule injectors but they are around 99 dollars each and i have 6 plus 3 moter mounts ugh this is costing a lot i hope if anyone else is having this issue that this will save them time and dont have a induction done by a idiot when you have old fule injectors because the guy that screwed my car up is costing me A LOT OF MONEY the induction pushed old crap into my fule injectors and cloged them all up what a NIGHTMARE

If you knew how and had the tools, they could be cleaned, but that's another story. I don't see how an induction service would clog the injectors, it shouldn't have but maybe he did something else and called it an induction service. I'm glad you found the problem, and sorry for your problem, if I can help again just let me know.

I dont know how either thats what they told me but i have the book and im doing my own repairs from now on i have a big tool collection even my own compressor an ratchets ill take them off and see after i clean the fule injectors if that is really the problem the compression test said my engine is good every thing came up around 175 so i hope this will fix it an ill never let those guys touch my car again once again i thank you so much and appreciate your advice and help
