What would cause oil to leak in the distributor and how can it be fixed Nissan pintara 1991?
With the engine running, remove the oil fill cap and hold a piece of paper over the hole. If the paper is pushed out of the way it's an indication of "blow-by". That's a condition where exhaust gas is leaking past the piston rings, into the crankcase. If pressure builds in the crankcase it will blow oil past the distributor seal and can cause front and rear main bearings to leak as well. The condition is often caused by failure to properly maintain the engine, either infrequent oil changes or air filter changes or both.

Dirty or worn out plugs or even a bad spark due to corroded or dirty contacts in the distributor will cause this.
1999 Nissan frontier 4x4 with 135000 miles on it after about 3 miles of driving the tack jumps at random like its misfiring but nothing shows up on the obd2 or vehicle computer?
After I asked this question with no response for two weeks, I dug a little deeper and discovered that the bearings in my distributor were worn out. So when the distributor heated up, everything got sloppy. Changed it and fixed my problem ,but this is an excellent site. Just posted in case anybody had the same problem. Thank you for your time.
There isn't a "cam sensor", because the car has a distributor. So the ignition module attached to the side of the distributor connects to a hall effect sensor that is in the distributor under the circular slotted vanes attached to the distributor shaft. There is a four pointed star-looking piece in the distributor that should be firmly fixed to the shaft. If that piece is loose, that may be your problem (you'll need to buy…
