Heat from the motor could cause the gasket to dry out and then it will crack and let motor oil inside your distributor cap and rotor

  • Would this cause engine performance problems as well? like stuttering when accelerating? And should I replace that gasket before I move on to (which I don't want to do AT ALL) removing the whole distributor and rotor to check the O ring behind it?

    Thanks!

    Yes, a faulty distributor would cause your car to act up. I have owned two Acura's and a Honda Accord and I had to replace the distributor on all three of them. This is a common issue with the Honda. The best thing to do is have your distributor rebuilt at an electronics shop. Don't buy aftermarket from the auto parts store

1996 honda accord won't start. drove 40 miles each way on friday and parked car .. first 40 miles was all stop and go traffice second 40 we took freeway all the way and just paid tolls, woke up sat...


There are several things that could cause this problem. First is when was the last time you replaced the fuel filter? Next thing you need to do is open your radiator cap to see if there is oil in your coolant and also pull your oil dipstick to see if there is any white stuff on the bottom of the dipstick. If either of these things are true then you have a blown head gasket. The last thing could be a bad coil or even engine control unit (ECU). Good luck.

Which motor oil to use for the engine? I have been using 10w40. can I switch it/top off with 10w30? My car is a 1991 honda accord ex with 190,000 miles on it. also, its leaking oil through the pan...


10w-40 is going to be slight better for your 190,000 mile engine especially in this warm weather-and it would have a slightly better tendency at resisting leakage, again at higher temps.

Determining if head gasket is blown on a 1994 honda accord Ex w VTec


White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.

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
