Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Well the master cylinder should have brake fluid in it, not oil. Oil belongs in the oil pan on the bottom of the crankcase. On a car that old it is not unusual for it to leak, often times leaking in more than one place. Cost to repair versus benefit of no leaks has to be considered. Gaskets around the valve covers and oil pan are likely places to find leaks. Working on brakes requires some knowledge, can be dangerous to work on them yourself, replacing the master cylinder is usually straightforward disconnect the brake lines, remove the nuts holding it onto the vacuum boost, bolt the new one in place, reconnect the brake lines. Then it must be bled and therein lies your lament.
