Picked up a 1988 CRX with the 1.5L which was not running. Distributor was janky as the rotor wobbled and was covered in oil. Replaced spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel and air filter, also replaced distributor purchased from amazon. Motor runs fine, except check engine light is on, and receiving 8 quick flashes (TDC position?) Timing Belt and water pump is next. Any help on what to check to clear the Check engine light would be appreciated. Thanks
