SOURCE: oil leaking on 95 honda accord ex

i would check the oil plug screw seal first before i would do the valve solenoid/pressure switch. also, if the oil plug screw seal is fine and tightly screwed in, it may just be the switch seal itself.

I bought a book , took it to honda of fife they said i needed a new computer 750 bucks yaeh right.......

93 honda accord, replaced head gasket but smokes bad in morning from the exhaust

The valve guides in the cylinder head are probably worn, allowing oil to seep into the cylinders overnight and burn off when you start up in the morning. That is why you're loosing oil, it's being burned off.

I have liquid in all 4 of my spark plug chambers. does this mean i need to replace the headgasket?

Type of liquid matters, if radiator water: usually this is other then a headgasket. Intake manifold crack or gasket is more likely. If oil: head is most likely seriously damaged. Was anything worked on recently? Did engine overheat? Could anything have been poured/splashed into throttle body or engine submerged?

Suspect blown head gasket and worn timing belt

yes the gasket is gone it will need the head skimmed as for belt being noisey it is probably cam belt tensioners you will get that when you get cam-belt kit and youll probably need to replace water pump as well .when you have the head off check the pistons to make sure their is not a lot of movement on them if their is you could be looking at an engine rebore hope ive helped you

Changing valve cover gasket on 92 honda accord EX 4 cyl...

no and should be easy compared to what your used to.  Just put a small dap of silicone at the 4 points the cam bearing caps meet head(don't remove the caps) you will see what I mean when you get into the job. I also recommend distributor  o-ring they leak often and  are also fairly easy. just mark the dist. It will only go in 2 ways it has tabs to align it not gears.
