Default Honda Accord 90 . Oil on ignition wires probes.

I got a problem with my Accord, suddenly just won't start no more ,
worked fine and after I stopped by a store half hour after car won't start
no more.
I assumed is a gas problem but even after adding gas was a no go.
Next step was to check ignition wires and here is when I had the big
surprise ,
the rubber probes where full of motor oil.
I can smell gasoline when trying to start the engine (leaking in the fuel
line)
so I assumed the fuel pump is OK but I don't know where this oil come from.
Please help.

Most of the 4 cylinder Hondas have rubber gaskets around the bottoms of the
spark plug holes on the valve cover gaskets. Pull your valve cover and
replace the gaskets, including the rubber plugs on the retaining bolts.

and the lower tube seals also. but that's not your problem. check
for spark. it's either the coil or ignitor, most likely the ignitor
on that year.
