Hey all, i think i have a problem. Just in the last couple days ive noticed a huge oil leak somewhere, but i cant find where it is. Ill look down from the drivers side, and see puddles on top of the tranny, directly below the distuibuter. All the lines between the tranny and the dist and maybe even the dist itself seem to have oil on them. This worries me because its actually quite a bit of oil.

What could be in that area that could start leaking? Are there any oil lines or anything? Could it be the vavle cover gasket/seal? Any ideas on what could leak a bit of oil in that area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The valve cover could leak... but it is likly the distributor's o-ring. That will leak all over if it goes bad. It is an easy fix if you own a timing light.

A little more difficult to correct is the distributor shaft seal. If there is oil inside the distributor cap, the seal is leaking.
