Default 1987 Honda Accord LX cranks but won't start

It has been suggested that we need to replace the Crankshaft Position Sensor however, we are unable to find where it is located on my accord or even where to purchase one? All help is greatly appreciated!!!

Before replacing any parts, you need to establish whether spark or fuel delivery is the problem. Suggest attempting to start w/ a 5-10 second shot of throttle body cleaner or starter fluid into the carb.

If it starts, fuel delivery is the likely problem; fuel relay, fuel filter, fuel pump.

If it doesn't start, ignition is likely problem; coil, ignitor, rotor, cap, or coil spark output wire. It could also be a faulty ignition switch not providing power to the ignition system.

good luck
