take plugs out and hold them on the head or block connected up and turn it over... you will see the spark if they work

no engine light?

if it started then stopped prob something cloggin the spark rather then the sparks... doubt they would work then just stop then work again. was there loads of oil on then or black soot?

Yes they were very black and oily. Its at the garage at the moment should be sorted. After the sparks were swapped around last night it started fine then I took it for a drive was okay. Switched it off then tried start it again it took ages kick in. But this time it revs roughly

yeah if they were coated in oil and black soot it means 1 oil is getting into your cylinders and 2 the petrol isnt combusting well (probs a result of oil in cylinder)

head gasket, valve seals, piston rings, oil over filled, ect

I have the same problem. Mechanic thinks it's the CKP (crankshaft position sensor), but the problem could also be the wires that control the CKP with the camshaft position and spark plugs. Unfortunately all this is controlled by the ECM, which applause Honda did well to F up. A lot of people have this issue and it's almost always a faulty ECU/ECM.
