1993 Civic Dx 1.5 About 2 months ago I replaced my cylinder head and gasket because exhaust was leaking into my coolant and the car was getting hot. I have cured that problem. When I took the distributo out the first time, I noticed there was alot of play/wiggle at the end that connects to the camshaft and I also notice metal shavings around that area on the distributor itself. It was gold in color and I am assuming it was the worn down bushing shavings from the distributor. I ended up buying a new distributor to put in the car. When I put back everything together, I used the old distributor to make sure everything was gonna work ok. I noticed that it was a little hard to install the distributor, I had to screw it down to fully seat and I could not adjust the distributor freely. Once I started the car, I loosened te screws to adjust the distributor and it moved freely. I removed the old distributor to install the new one and I had the same problem as before, but once the car was started it was free to move and adjust. I noticed when the car was running, I could see the distributor cap moving a little. Everything is screwd on tight, the distributor is fully seated... and the car runs fine! Now 1500 miles later, I am leaking oil through my distributor again! (when I removed the old distributor, there was oil in it also!) My question to you guys is....... Could it be possible that the end of the camshaft that meets the distributor is out of round (warped) from the times the car got hot and is causing the distributor bushing to fail and therefore leak oil through my distributor? Would replacing my camshaft solve the problem? Keep in mind I am having the same problem with both distributors, The cylinder head was rebuilt before I put it back on the car. Sorry for the long story!!
