I just put a crank shaft position sensor and a new distributor but my car still misfires

Misfires are usually caused by something simple like a bad spark plug or spark plug wire. You feel the misfire upon acceleration more for a bad spark plug wire. I would suggest a full tune up.

I did a tune up I put a distributor and a crankshaft sensor and changed the spark plugs that wasn’t the issue

If you are sure the ignition system is good then next you need to look for a plugged fuel injector. You need to determine which cylinder is misfiring, then do a flow test on that injector. If that turns out to be OK, then now you will will need to look at basic engine mechanical issues.

The engine in my 2007 Honda Accord locked up on me due to no oil. I plan on installing a used engine. I found a 2.4 liter, 4 cyclinder VIN 5th digit engine from a 2007 Honda CR-V with only 50k miles on it. Would it work in my Honda Accord, which also has a 2.4 liter, 4 cyclinder engine?

Honda says i may need a valve adjustment. I have a 2006 honda civic 110, 000 miles. Is it necessary?

Actually it is pretty important on your Honda, as well as many other foreign cars. When the engine gets up there in mileage, it is a good service to adjust the valves since there is wear between the rocker arms, cam and valve tips. This will actually make the engine run a little more efficient and prevent top engine noises and possible failure.

1987 Accord manual tranny 310k miles..driving interstate yesterday when I quickly lost 5th gear..had to drive approximately 35 miles in 4th gear..am I doing any damage by always driving the car in 4th gear?

That depends on what the engine RPM is. If in 4th gear and the engine is revving real high, then yes, you are going to damage the engine.
