Honda Accord Oil Leak in Distributor May Cause Misfires/Loss of Power

(13 reports)

An oil leak inside the distributor can cause the engine to misfire resulting in a loss of power. It is common for the distributor to be replaced to correct this concern.

Car misfires was driving causing a loss of power and seem to momentarily stalls. Took it to the Honda Dealer and was told the reason for the misfires is an after market distributor and spark plug wires need changing. I have not replace the distributor yet but have placed an order for a new Honda distributor should arrive here on Thursday or Friday. I will update after repair and test drive. -
