how to determine wether starter or alternator are bad
i want to determine whether my starter or alternator are bad, by the way my car don't start i want to know if it could be the starter or alternator, if the starter or alternator are bad can my car get sparks, cause im not getting any sparks in my car.
If the car turns over the starter is okay. Test the voltage on the alternator to see if its good. Your coil or ignitor might be bad. You need a manual for your car to check out those ones. Google "hondahookup manuals" if you dont have one already.

Check your battery. If your battery is dead it is most likely the alternator. Jump it, start it, and disconnect the cables, if the car dies or the battery won't hold charge for long you definitely have an alternator problem.
If the car won't even start, you have a starter problem.
(There could also be a problem with your batter, depending on how old it is.)

my car is giving me problems for the last month, sometimes it would start normal in the mornings and sometimes it would take like an 1 hour before i can get it on and there were time where the car would turn on for like 3 sec and then shut off, also if i idle high or redline the car would shut off, and 3 days ago i was driving the car fine, and i turn it off for like 2 hours and went i went to turn it back on it would not start, so i check if i was getting sparks and i wasn't so i changed the dizzy and still no sparks
