Question about Honda Accord
Hi, well first of all this is a very unusual thing to happen, leaking oil from a distributor, that sounds like it is a bad thing, normally you should not get any oil not one drop in there it should be dry and clean, this will definitely make the engine stutter as this has all the electrical parts for the timing inside, points/contacts, rotor arm, this is very bad indeed, what you have here is either the engine has to much oil in and is forcing it through the seals on the distributor, in this case you will need to drain some oil out, there is not a gasket in the distributor cap, what you have there is a dust cover and it stops any sparks that the points produce shorting inside, you can however try removing the distributor ( making sure to put pot one piston to top and the rotor of the distributor is pointing to one ) and remove the distributor , on the bottom of that you Will find 1 or 2 "O" ring seals, replace these as these should stop oil coming out the side of it, and up the shaft....MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OIL FIRST!!!!!....
