I have a '95 cirrus 2.5L V6. It just died one day while driving. So we looked into it. I took out my distributor and saw that there was oil on the end of it, is it supposed to have oil on it?

    If there is oil inside the distributor itself the seal at the base of the distributor has failed. Oil should not be allowed to enter the distributor itself. A re manufactured distributor will be needed to keep oil out of the distributor.
