What are comon places for oil leaks on a 1994 v6 camaro

Some models have an adapter that goes between the oil filter and the block. The oil pressure sending unit is nearby also.
You may have to spray clean the area to find the leak.

Whet is the differential oil

If you mean what is the weight, most cars use 90 weight. If you have a limited slip differential, you would also need a bottle of additive or buy the oil with the additive in it.

My isuzu is making a clunking noise when i drive in the back drivers side. It is also leaking a grey black gunky substance inbetween the rotoer and what the rotor goes on to.

The clunking noise is a sign that the rear axle diffential gear oil needs to be changed. Put a catch pan underneath it, and remove all the bolts from the differential cover. Drain the old oil, and spray brake cleaner into the area to flush all dirt deposits from the unit. The brake cleaner evaporates and won't leave a residue.

Put a silicone sealant around the cover before remounting. Refill the unit with the gear oil weight specified in your maintenance manual, and also add a tube of limited slip differential paste (available at Autozone). Fill the differential until it begins to overflow from the fill hole.

Concerning the black gunky substance leaking out: there's a good chance that the axle seal is worn and letting the differential gear oil leak out. You should consider replacing those before refilling the differential. It will continue to leak until you do so.

Best regards,

Need to put oil in the rear of car thats 90 weight need to no where it goes

Take it to an oil change place and tell them to check the differential oil. It won't cost much and trust me, it's hard to do at home without a lift.
