    Ive got a 93 civic hatch VX

    Whenever I rev the engine up to about 2k,
    Where the ex. manifold bolts to the block, it screams and the engine sounds like its running though water and bogs down, eventually the engine dies after about five seconds of this.
    Also, when i do this, air comes back out the intake manifold.

    I replaced the distributor, and checked the plugs and wires.

    anything helps, Thanks

    spray some carb cleaner around the intake manifold gasket area. If the RPM's rise, you have an intake gasket leak. Thats what it sounds like to me.
