yea i know there is one more gasket on the top half of the vtec sol, but it doesnt look like its leaking from there. it looks like its coming from between the sol and the head. ill order the other gasket and see if it works... i really need to have it fixed by monday tho

its a new distributor, i did think of that tho. i can see it leaking from the top of the solinoid where it meets the head. as soon as the car is started it starts running out. i dont get it... thanks for the reply tho

Well, after looking at my DD motor today I realized that my vtec noid gasket is leaking too. But I have yet to get a new one put on. Hope you find out the issue quick. GL!

think its the gasket on the top of the solinoid, not the one thats against the head. took it apart today just to ckeck it, and the gasket was hard as a brick. ill get a new one from honda asap and see what happens. thanks for the reply

i took it apart, cleaned it, and added some of the rubber sealant that i used on the valve cover. so far so good... its just a temporary fix.
