1990 Honda CRX Problems
An oil leak at the spark plug area (spark plug tubes) can be caused by a failing valve cover sealing rubber and/or camshaft holder o-ring. The sealing rubber and o-ring will need to be replaced to address this issue.
The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car, usually over the head of the driver or passengers head when turning a corner. Cleaning the drains will fix this problem.

I loved my CRX more then any car I have ever driven on an extended basis. It was incredibly quick off the line, got fantastic fuel mileage, had tons of cargo space, and was relatively cheap to repair. There is a ton of aftermarket support for it as well, and it is easy a very easy car to modify and upgrade either as a show car or a serious performance car. Handling for a front wheel drive ca...
