Check the connectors, especially around the ignition distribution. You can seal connectors with a little silicon grease, but if there is any damage, just replace the part.

AnswerBefore you go too far assuming the distributor is at fault, start the engine and remove the oil fill cap.If you get a lot of air coming out, it may be what's called "blow by". That is often the result of not changing the oil on schedule. The rings become trapped in oil "sludge" and end up failing to provide an adequate seal. When that happens, combustion gasses leak past the cylinders and into the crankcase. The combustion gasses can end up creating enough pressure that it pushes oil vapor out any opening, including the distributor shaft or the rear main seal. Without that blowby pressure, the oil will not be able to make it up that distributor shaft and leak out.IF you found oil inside the distributor most likely it coming from the seal on the shaft of the distributor. To fix this problem you will have to replace the distributor sub assy.
