Honda Distributor Oil Seal Replacement
In this video I cover repairing both internal and external oil leaks on 1994-1997 Honda 4 cylinder engine distributors.
Many state if the distributor is leaking internally it can't be repaired and to buy a new distributor. Well with the right part number and a bit of patience. You can fix that internal oil leak and save yourself at least 180 bucks.
Here are the part numbers of the parts used in the video. These are for the Tec distributors (external ignition coil) only the part numbers listed are not compatible with Hitachi distributors (internal ignition coil).
Outer O-Ring Seal: 30110-PA1-732 (From Honda).
Inner Shaft Seal Part Number: NOK BH3888E (Order Online). The dimensions of this seal are 12.5 X 22.5 X 5mm.
I also address repairing the common outer seal leak as well.
If you replace your heater core inlet hose you'll need to bleed the cooling system.
Here is a link to my video on bleeding the cooling system:

Replacing a Distributor, Acura Integra - EricTheCarGuy
Replacing a Distributor, Acura Integra - EricTheCarGuy
Well I think the title will sum this one up. Yes, I did loan my car to my brother the other day only to get it back with a bad distributor, luckily I had one in a box, not the correct one but one that worked. This also covers firing order and a few other tips should you have to replace the igniter or coil. In my opinion the only things you should automatically replace a distributor on a Honda or Acura for are the bearing going bad like in this video or oil leaking inside the assembly. I don't think they should ever be automatically replaced for a no start. I also highly recommend using Honda ignition parts, if not you may be sorry.
There will be a "sequel" to this covering setting the ignition timing, click the link below.

Oil Pan Gasket Change
Oil Pain in the Assket! Here is a 1998 Infiniti I30. The oil pan gasket needed replacing and the oil needed to be changed anyway. Went from a silicon only gasket and went to a felt gasket with some high temp silicon.
My Oil Leak
major oil leak after Tires Plus changed the oil. It looks like the tech over tightened the oil filter thus tweaking the oil cooler and causing it to leak, BAD!
Vacuum Leak on Intake Manifold - Honda Prelude
Grabbed a can of Carb Cleaner and sprayed around til I found the leak. Appears to be right around Cylinder 1 Intake runner where it meets up with the head. Listen as the engine RPM drop when I spray the area.
Before this point, I have cleaned out the FITV, IACV, checked all vacuum lines, bled the coolant, and replaced the oring on IACV. I even plugged BOTH holes inside the Throttle body and the engine kept running! What does that tell you? VACUUM LEAK!
The intake manifold gasket was replaced with a Hondata Thermal Gasket, which then fixed the problem. What caused this leak? Poor workmanship and incorrect installation of the manifold.
****EDIT 10/20/11: I fixed the leak. It was the intake manifold gasket. I replaced it with a Hondata Thermal Gasket.
I was trying to figure out what that knocking sound is in this video...
****EDIT November 2012: I ended up replacing the whole motor because the piston rings failed. The loud tractor sound was valve related, but it was NOT valve lash or LMA's. It was a cam shaft holder that was loose as well as a combination of other things. Bent valves, loose/ worn out crank pulley.
98 Honda Prelude H22a4 Head Gasket Replacement PT1
I just bought this car fairly cheap. It had dropped a valve in cyl #4, damaged the original head, and piston. I replaced the head and piston. The car ran good for a few days, and then it blew the head gasket. I originally used a cheap JIS head gasket. This time around I used a Fel-Pro head gasket. I had to have the head rechecked, and machined. Everything checked out fine.
