If the leak is oil either an upper or lower oil seal (crankshaft or camshaft). If the leak is antifreeze, freeze out plug or for a four cylinder, potential head gasket, thermostat housing. or possibly the water pump has gone bad

Can your pully holding alternater belt and ect. coming loose and belts coming off cause my Honda to jump timing ?

A bad seal, worn bearings, or maybe even a bent crankshaft.

The check engine light may be flashing on a 1996 Honda Accord if a timing issue is detected or oil pressure is low. The exact cause can be determined by connecting an OBDII code reader.

Engine timing is VERY retarded. My first guess: the distributor clamp has loosened.
