There is a rubber O-ring on the shaft of the distributor housing and it is very common for them to get hard, deteriorate, and leak. You'll need to buy the O-ring from Honda as it is not a standard size, then remove the distributor cap, note the position that the rotor is pointing, scribe a mark across the base plate of the distributor where it mates to the head so you can replace it, then remove the 3 bolts that hold the distributor in, pull it out and replace the O-ring.

My 91 honda civic dx hatchback which is an auto dont wanna seem to switch gears and revs! i dont know what to do


I would try to have the transmission flushed and filled with new transmission fluid for about $100 or so. If this doesn't solve the problem, a rebuild is indicated, if you plan on keeping the car. Or, you could alternatively buy a used transmission that fits your engine and car combination, that doesn't have this problem.

Good luck on this repair.

Small amount of what seems to be engine oil in the radiator over a long period of time


Is it an automatic? If so, you have a leak, in the trans. cooler, that is inside your radiator. Therefore, you need a new radiator

Sheared camshaft sprocket key, sprocket turns freely.


One psooibility to this is that there was insufficient oil going to the cam bearings and the camshaft seized. The oil galleries in the head could be plugged therefore not supplying oil to the cam bearings.
There is a posibility that the valves are not bent but you would have to check them carefully. that could be checked out when thw head is machined because if the cam seized you'll have to take the head off and have it serviced.( cam bearing seats machined and oil galleries cleared. Hope this helps you out
