Lease check and make sure that you replace with the right seal, that alone should have taken care of this problem. However if the valve cover gasket is loose or bad it will cause oil to leak around distributor are but NOT into distributor. This seal can be easily replaced by loosing 4 10mm bolts on top of valve cover. Contact if you need more help Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Turn the engine over by hand untill it is at top dead centre of Number one cylinder firing stroke . At this point the rotor will be pointing to number one position of the distributor cap. Mark the exact position of the rotor tip, you could use a ruler to mark the position on a fixed point somewhere for comparison when the distributor goes back in. You can now take out the distributor but make sure you dont turn over the engine or you will lose your reference. You can now replace the o rings and put the distributor back in and if there is not too much wear your oil leak should be solved. Check the rotor still points to the exact position it was before and the timing will be the same.
