Default Help! My 95 civic won't start

Hello to everyone,

I was (foolishly, I know now) testing each cylinder of my 95 Honda ESi
by pulling on the plug wires one at a time. At the third plug, the
engine died and it won't start. I've read that doing this could break
the ignition coil. So I tested for a spark (none), and after testing
the igniter (using a 12v bulb) and confirming that it works, I've now
replaced the coil, but it still won't start. The old coil tested fine
with a multimeter, BTW, but I've heard that it could still be bad.

I've had the battery recharged, and the starter cranks ok. The "IG"
fuse under the hood is fine (even tested with a meter). What could be
the problem? Can anyone please help?

Thanks so much in advance.

Hi, it seems my ignition coil was bad, and after replacing it, I now
see a spark. But it still won't start, and I don't smell fuel at the
exhaust when the engine is cranked. What could the problem be? Should
I get some friends and try to push-start?

Thanks again.
