The oil leak from the distributor is causing some gunk/sludge to collect all over everything underneath it. Including a set of wires and the wire connector. Is this something I should be spending sleepless nights worrying about? I can't figure out what these wires are for & I know it's hard to see them but if anyone knows what they might be for I'd like to know. (It's a 5sfe engine)
 
If you look closely you can see that the wires, and the connector are covered in all that dirt from the oil.​ This photo was taken underneath the distributor, a little bit behind it. I can't really see much in there but it's just above the transmission.

This is what the wires and the connector should look like.. This set of wires here aren't the same as the above photo, I'm just using these clean ones as an example.

On the top of the rear of the gearbox? Speed sensor.

The second image you attached just confuses the situation as there are only 3 wires visible in the first pic.

It's not a huge issue is it? I'll try to get some better photos of it, it's really deep in there.

It's common, but it will deteriorate the wiring and connector over time.

Yep just as I thought, it'll hold up for a little while.

I'm rebuilding my dizzy now. I can post all the part numbers for the seals and bearings so you can fix this if you like.

Take off the distributor cap if there is no trace of oil inside it cold be just the o ring under the distributor, if there is oil inside the distributor it will need to have the shaft removed and the seals replaced. The electrical plugs have rubber seals to keep water out but over time as mentioned the oil will degrade the rubber and the oil. water and whatever else will get in.
