The oil leak and noise are probably two different things. Get the distriburor o-ring replaced to fix the oil leak. It's an easy repair. 

As for the noise, it's hard to say based on what you've said. Take it to a good garage and have a mechanic test drive the car to find out what the actual issue is.

Davy answered the question on the Dizzy.

YOUR TRANSMISSION,  

guess it is time over for a fluid change, and lt's telling you it's not doing good. So do a fluid change and check the mounts..

 

Good luck.

TT.

Dear Davy,

Could you please suggest good branded engine oil for AE110?
