Look for oil under the distributor cap. If you see any spots or puddles of oil under it you have the ubiquitous oil leak coming through the distributor issue. I had the same problem with my 94 Altima.
Carefully take off the distributor cap, get some contact cleaner and spray down the encoder wheel and wipe out the excess oil. "Be careful, if you chip or break the encoder wheel you'll be shopping for another distributor shaft!!" You may want to replace the gasket on the cap if you feel ambitious (However I never did and since cleaning out the distributor my Altima has been running great for the last 15K miles...)
