    I recently bought a 1988 honda civic i assume its a std it has a 1.5l(tbi) 4speed
    When I brought it home i noticed it was leaking water so i checked it out and it was the water pump so i replaced that after all the it ran fine then i noticed oil coming out from under the crankshaft pulley so i took it all aprat again and replaced the seal behind the pulley, and now it wont start, I can smell the gas but I dont know what to do it has new spark plugs and wires the only thing I think it could be is the timing but i did that right, or the fuel pump! Any ideas on what it could be, answers would be GREAT!!!:confused:
