COMPRESSION TEST FOR VALE AND RING LEAKAGE. MAKE SURE TO TEST ALL CYLINDERS. YES IT'S A GOOD POSSIBILITY THAT YOU LOST YOUR TIMING. NEED TO CHECK THE TIMING WITH A TIMING LIGHT.IF THE VEHICLE HAS 90,000 + ON THE MOTOR IT IS WELL PAST TIME TO DO THE TIMEING BELT ON IT BEFORE YOU BEND A VALVE OR PUNCH A HOLE IN YOU PISTON.

How do you set the timing on a 1990 honda civic lx 1.5 liter


Depending on the distributor used, it should be set from the factory..Check to see if the bolts that mount the distributor are in slotted holes. If not, then there is no adjustment possible. If so, check underhood sticker for timing specs and procedure.

Oil in distributor


I think the seal around the distributor shaft is the primary problem. The oil is definitely causing the engine performance issues.
