Oil leaks

Can someone help me please. Honda Accord 92, 2.2L, got oil leaks inside the distributor, replaced new distributor but the problem is still there. Please help.

Thanks,

There's a fairly heavy lip seal on that distributor that's responsible. It can replaced. I believe it comes in from the bottom, but it's been a while.

I would talk to where you got the new distributor from (parts store or shop) and if under a year old, they should either replace it or repair it for you.

Hope this helps,

Bob

Check PCV; excess breather pressure maybe?
That's a long shot. Not familiar with that distributor installation, but if there was enough crankcase pressure to push oil out the distributor it would likely be coming out other places as well. Just to be sure, the oil leakage is definitely inside the distributor? Doesn't seem like it could be anything but a bad seal somewhere on the shaft.

What is the different distributor - a new distributor, a rebuilt distributor, or a used one?

The oil seal for that is also the end camshaft seal. Assuming everything was serviceable in the distributor, and there is a new cam end seal, that leaves the end cam bearing/cap at fault = which means all of them on that cam would have to be replaced.

It takes a lot of miles or abuse to wear out those cam journals. I believe if the seal was replaced it would take of it.

Hope this helps,

Bob
