My honda will not turn over.

(1999 Honda Civic)
I have a 1999 honda civic Ex 1.6 4 cyl 5 speed 2 door, the check engine light came on and it usually means I need a tune up , well it just had a tuneup in May 2011 everything was changed ngk r spark plugs rotor cap wires and all. Then I said that should not have went bad already. With new plugs and the old plugs the car will not start. The car is trying it turns over but will not start. I have a full tank of gas, oil just changed and checked all the time, it does burn or use oil. Someone mentioned that I need the codes to find out what it might be, It won't start to take it to get the codes or to get there. Please does anyone have any suggestions for me?

You can get codes without starting the engine. You will need a scanner to plug in and retrieve the codes. When the CEL came on when engine was running was when you should have scanned it. Pay attention to CEL they mean something. The light does not mean you need a tune up. It means something is out of spec because of possibly worn out tune related components and that takes place long after the suggested tune up time and mileage.
