the most common crank but no start problem on the Acura/Honda vehicles from the 90's up to somewhere in 2005 or so is the main relay,sometimes called the fuel pump relay(usually when it's hot it won't start,only cranks,then when it cools off it will start. cold solder joints on the circuit board inside the casing sometimes makes contact and sometimes not,preventing the car from starting. replacing the relay corrects this problem. does not look like a regular under hood relay. google part number 19257 for a picture. this relay controls spark and fuel.

there are several things that could be your problem,but what I listed in above answer is one of the two most common problems for what I think that you are describing. The other common problem on this issue is a failing ignition coil.testing required. If this is the problem,then local parts store is around $70.00 plus tax. has the exact same part for $19.05 plus $5.99 for shipping 2-3 business days(1/3 of the cost of a local parts store)..part number "DELPHI GN10223"
