possible ignition coil itself because tachometer takes signal from ignition coil.you may also have check engine light on too.

SOURCE: 1995 Altima: what is the cause of oil leak around the distribut...

the oil leak is due to the rubber "o" ring at the edge of the distributor, the part that goes into the cylinder head.
the ring hardens over time and won't make a good seal allowing oil to leak out.
mark the position of the distributor before removing, this will prevent you from loosing ignition timing.
only two ten mill. bolts holding it to the head.

SOURCE: 2001 mazda millenia 2.5L dohc.

because the way fixya is set up i can not see the other advice that you have gotten from the other experts but i can see your response to them, so if i cover some ground that has already been covered i will apologize in advance.

lets start with the oil on top of the spark plug boots there is o-rings that are under the valve cover that go around the spark plug hole they must be leaking, and allowing oil to run into the spark plug well.

the little blast of pressure you got from the EVAP valve is normal, as a mater of fact it is good it is telling me that the EVAP system has no leaks.

now for the no start or start and stall, when you turned the engine over with the air gap wrong on the crankshaft sensor you most likely damaged the sensor or the reluctor ring in the balancer, if you are not getting a proper signal from this sensor you will have either very late or very early ignition timing and either early or late injection pulse with, both of which and foul the spark plugs.

as for the cap and rotor, i am not sure, but there is a vent in the disturbor that goes into the engine and if the engine has to much blow by you might be getting gunk blown into the disturbor housing, but that is just a guess.

now as for it running on the stands and stalling when you took it down, that is a tuff one because there is nothing i can think if that would cause that, in less 1 it is low on fuel and when it was in the air it could pick up the fuel in the tank and when on the ground it can not or 2 when it was put on the ground it somehow put pressure on the balancer or crank sensor which couid happen if the air gap is to tight.

i hope this helps please let me know if there is any thing else i can do for you

Couple things could happen
You might have some wiring that might be frayed or the sensor inside the distributor might be bad that's what reads the tach it's called an optical sensor you need to replace the whole distributor most Likly that's your problem

take off one of the plug wires and hold it next to a metal surface, get someone to turn the engine over for you and see if the spark is bright blue, if it is the coils are ok, then check for oil leaking around your distributor, if you have an oil around that area take off the distributor cap and see if there is oil inside. the seal may be gone, while you have the cap off it would be a good time to check the rotor button inside

I have a 1989 sundance 2.5l turbo was a great running car but it died. i have no spark! the tach starting jumping and then just died. i replaced cap, rotor, plugs, wires, coil, and distributor...


Check to make sure you have 12 volts going to the distributor. You should be able to check this at the connecter going into the distributor. Unplug it, turn the key switch to "on", connect the ground on your test light or meter to a bolt on the engine and you should have power. If not, I would start checking all of your fuses and if they are all good, then I would start tracing the wire back looking for burns or cuts.

Car idles low then dies.


For you to figure out if the spark plug fires, you need to pull it out one by one while running. Make sure that you are wearing protective gloves for this one. Normally for spark plug issues the idle will be sort of erratic and fells as if the revs is slow to go up when teh gas is stepped on. For the oil, check for leaks around the engine and smoke at the exhaust. Oil may enter the combustion chamber and burn causing a dark or bluish smoke. Also check the coolant in your radiator if oil gets in. For these problems you need to replace some oil seals and some oil ring. The low idle can be caused by faulty wiring since you have an EFI engine. Check the connections if they are loose. Also check the fast idle control valve if you can adjust the idle or it may need cleaning

1990 HONDA ACCORD DISTRIBUTOR LEAKING OIL INTERNALLY


Lease check and make sure that you replace with the right seal, that alone should have taken care of this problem. However if the valve cover gasket is loose or bad it will cause oil to leak around distributor are but NOT into distributor. This seal can be easily replaced by loosing 4 10mm bolts on top of valve cover. Contact if you need more help Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
