Distributor has O ring that has to be replaced, but you could also have excess crankcase pressure.
PVC could be malfunctioning.
Make sure oil not old or diluted with gas.
Change it more often.
Use thicker oil in older engine, like Castrol 20W-50.

Intermittent noise sounds like vacuum leak in cold weather

If the motor is a 3.0 litre "u " type motor It's the camshaft posistion sensor shaft, it's where the Distrubutor use to be in the back of the engine block. It seems the oil dosen't reach the shaft very well and binds causing that sound.

What are some solutions for a 1994 Camaro Z28 Lt1 engine, that has hesitation when at lower speeds. Some sputtering happens also. Have tried the usual fuel injectors. Occasionally this problems smooths...

The rear seal of the intake manifold will leak but the sendinging unit for oil pressure is more likly. if it's just a light on switch just change it for general practice as their cheap and the distrubutor drive can leak but you need the swich removed to check this area as the valve covers leaking are the most common problem don'et overlook them as they leak in all kinds of ways. miles and or time tells me how bad a leak is you can let'er sit and the oil drain plug can leak a 1/2 quart but you don't even drive itand does it leak if it sits? can you look under thew car with it running and see it drip? a 1/2 quart leak is easy to find unless you drive real far in 3 days. Oil pressure sending unit ( bet-so)

Low oil pressure

Yes, the distrubutor runs the oil pump. Try sliding the old one back in and see if you get pressure back.
But I'll warn you you may have caused lots of problems running it with no oil to the bearings.
