I have a 96 Honda Civic EX and I was driving it and all of a sudden it stalled when I tried to put it in fourth gear, and would not start by turning the key or getting a rolling start and putting it in gear. I pulled my plug wires and tested them and I have no spark. Is there anyone who has had this problem or know's how to fix this problem.

your distributior, rotor, or coil has died. get new ones of each, starting with the cheapest first, and see if that works. or you can take it to autozone or one of those places, i know one will test your electrical system for you for free.

ya, unbolt your distributor cap and see what the problem is... everything is pretty intuitive so you should be able to see if one thing or the other is broken..... no spark should definitely be an easy electrical fix. check your fuses?

also, before the car died, were your shifts clean? or were you hitting the fuel cutoff and/or grinding the gears?
