I have a coolant leak on the passenger side of engine just under the distributor of my 1999 honda crv.

If it leaks out of a hose you need to purchase and install a new hose. If it leaks out of a housing such as a water pump it will need replacing.

96 accord leaking anti freeze near distributor

I believe that next to the distributor is the thermostat flange with the water hoses. Check if the leak is from the flange or any of the hoses. If it is from where the jubilee clips is try to tight the clip,if there is a leak from hose on other place ask a qualified mechanic to do the job as you might have a cracked or hole any hose and if you try it on your own is a risk to either burn your self or overheat the engine.

Well,check for a vacuum leak,by starting it cold,and have someone keep it running while you spray some brake cleaner aT VARIOUS SPOTS WHERE VACUUM LINES MEET,or toward back of intake manifold,but not near air cleaner.
Any change in rpm down or up indicates a leak. don-ohio

Leaking oil left side of motor

Since it's not clear whether you mean driver side or passenger side, I will address both.

On the driver side, the most common leak is from the distributor. This can be caused by the distributor shaft exterior o-ring, or it can be caused by the distributor shaft interior bearing seal. To determine which it is, remove the distributor. First detach the spark plug wires, then undo the bolt that holds the distributor to the head, then pull the distributor out of the head. You will see the o-ring on the exterior of the distributor shaft. This is a $0.50 part, so just replace it with a new one as long as you have the distributor out. The bearing seal is on the inside of the distributor. To inspect it, undo the three bolts holding the cap to the distributor body. Pop the rotor off the shaft, the unclip the inside plastic cover. If you see any oil inside the distributor or the distributor cap, this means the seal is leaking and must be replaced. You can get a seal and bearing replacement kit from Or, you can just buy a new distributor. Note: To get the distributor back in place you must align the shaft correctly with the notch in the camshaft. There is a right way and a wrong way. If the shaft seems to be aligned but does not go in, pull it out and rotate it 180 degrees, then put it back in.

The other possibility on the driver side of the engine is the main seal between the engine and transmission. If this is the case, you would have to either drop the transmission or pull the engine to replace it.

What if the oil is leaking on the passenger side? If it's coming from behind the timing belt cover, there is a camshaft seal and a crankshaft seal, both of which can leak oil. To get to them, you will have to remove all accessory belts and the alternator, remove the exterior crankshaft pulley, remove the engine mount (support the engine) and the timing belt covers, remove the timing belt, then the crankshaft pulley and/or camshaft pulley, whichever is necessary to replace the leaking seal(s).

Where else could oil be leaking from? If it's coming out from near the top of the engine, that's the valve cover gasket. Remove the valve cover and replace the gasket. While you're at it, replace the spark plug tube seals.

If it's coming out from near the bottom of the engine, it could be the oil pan gasket. Remove the oil pan and replace the gasket.

One more possibility for oil leakage: The head gasket. But in this case you would have noticed other symptoms besides just an oil leak.

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

You have a cylinder imbalance ,plugs or wires,if the distributor is in the front down in front,it has got to have some work,look for a water pump leaking on the distributor.Check cap,and rotor on the distributor.

Oil is leaking from the distbutor cap

There is an O ring below the distributor causing this oil leaking. To change it the distributor needs to be removed to access the O ring. It is simple but if not paying attention, when putting it back it can cause misfiring and the engine won't be able to start. Be careful. See the picture below. d96dabf.jpg

I have a leak on the back of the engine a large hose goes back there but I can not see the connection and don't know for sure if it is the hose leaking.

Some of this below I wrote to another person and copy/pasted it here so it directs to the water pump incase that's your issue. If your leak is on the driver's side of the engine read the last paragraph, if not... maybe you have a ruptured radiator hose that connects to the block below your distributor. Another hose is the obvious one in front that goes from the top of the radiator to the head. In the back of the engine there's a hose that runs coolant to your heater core and another hose that returns the coolant back to your motor. Those are smaller hoses than the 2 main ones.

Do you need a new water pump, the bearing might have went out in it and it has a "weep hole" that lets the coolant near the driver's side front tire (on the engine block) out to let you know what happened, rattling is a good indicator too. Change the timing belt2.gif at the same time and you'll be good for the next 125k miles. Don't drive it any more or you will possibly warp the head or ruin the head gasket. The cost is about $350. for all around here in central Ohio, don't know where you are but hopefully it's not more than that. If you try to do this yourself you will also want to learn how to set the timing. Good luck.

The opti-spark distributor cap is below the water pump.
Often a leaking water pump will cause a short in the distributor
Due to the amount of time and labor cost to remove the water pump, and that fact that the water pump has to be removed to replace the distributor cap, it is a good idea to replace the distributor cap at the same time the water pump is replaced. The water pump is driven by a pinion shaft with an " O " ring. Be sure to replace the " O " ring too else you may shortly develop an oil leak at that point.
