OIL LEAKING INTO DISTRIBUTER

1996 Nissan Altima

Engine Performance problem
1996 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

My Nissan Altima has been in the shop to replace the distributer because oil was in it. The car has been running rough all along and now, about 3 month later I am told the distributer has oil in it again. Any suggestions as to what the real problem could be? The car idles rough and runs rough.

Thank you,
Christine

Could be the distributor drive gear O-ring is leaking and the oil is making its way inside the distributor shorting things out-
