I was cleaning out my block area because there seemed to be a leak, I saw oil dripping out the sides, so I opened it and found the problem, some of the oil got all over the cam gear area, so I decided to unscrew it and clean it, but at the same time I accidently dropped a bolt into the timing belt area. And my dad tried to start the engine when I said "No dont" he still did. The car wont start and I need a way to fix it.

Can you please tell me how to fix this problem. Any suggestions?

my car - Honda Civic EX 1998 D-series engine.

You need to open the front cover-check the belt maybe it snapped, then find the bolt-your valve/ignition timing is off it will never start-you need to put it in TDC compression stroke-line up the cam and crank sprockets and making sure the rotor is pointing to the no.1 tower on the cap. Before you reinstall the belt and then retime the ignition.
