    I have a 97 Civic LX with the 1.6 engine. The car started to develop a rough idle and some problems. I thought I diagnosed the problem to the timing belt and when I pulled it apart that was not the issue. I replaced the timing belt and water pump because it was open (thanks @ericthecarguy). I got it back together and it still would not run. I did some poking around and when I look down into the intake manifold I see a pool of gas. If I dry this gas up with rags the car will start and run roughly.

    It was suggested I replace the distributor but I don’t see how that would put excessive fuel in the intake. Would appreciate any ideas or help
