Probably ignition distributor , very common on this.
I'm saying distributor because it's all in one unit , coil ,hall sensor , igniter etc.
Cheaper and more effective to repl. distributor then parts in it. Ck if you have spark , if not - 99% it's distributor.

    the coil and ignition module is also inside distributor,just take cap off and check condition of components inside,if you see a lot of white staff all over , that's your problem.

I cant find my timing marks for my 1990 honda accord lx because the cover is slightly woren but are the timing marks on the cover or engraved in the metal? this is for the crank shaft.

The 1990-1993 accord timing marks are located in the space between the engine and transmission. There is a rectangular rubber plug, at the top, front of the transmission housing, that pulls out and the timing marks are visible(with a timing light) through that access hole.

1990 Honda Accord just quit while driving. How do

You should be able to remove some 10 mm bolts from the timing belt cover and pry the cover out of the way enough to see the timing belt. Have an assistant crank the engine and look for movement of the belt. If you cannot get the cover off, remove the valve cover and look for movement. Don't crank the engine too long with the valve cover off, as you make make an oily mess, especially if the engine fires and starts.

No fuel no spark 1990 honda accord

other than the timing belt being broken, it sounds like the crank sensor in the distributor. get a used distributor. but first pop cap off and see if it is turning with engine.

1990 honda accord lx oil leakage problem

No, you don't have to pull the engine. Many of those problems are fixed by removing the wheel, and the plastic inner fender. It's probably a crank seal, or a power steering hose. PS- You mean the passenger side... don't you?
