I have an issue with my 94 prelude si, it cranks but wont start.. I've changed the distributor cap and rotor, as well as the coil, and still no spark, what could be the issue

Try the ICM, Ignition Control Module. My brother had the same problem on his 98 Prelude. He changed the fuel pump and still had the same problem. He borrowed my distributor and it turned on. He figured out that his ICM was faulty and therefore no spark at the wires.

Also, plug wires, timing. If you're not getting an ECU error code to help you pinpoint the problem, proceed with ignition/running problems by going back to basics. Check components systematically and do not replace on the basis of a guess.

My '89 Si is extremely sensitive to air in the coolant system. It won't start if the air hasn't been bled out. I don't know if this is an issue with later Preludes. If so, and iif you are indeed not getting spark, then this doesn't apply. Of course, if you're getting no spark, you also won't be able to check your timing.
