Default My 92 acura vigor turns over but wont stay on.?

So, about a month ago I noticed that my 1992 Acura vigor wasn't starting at the first turn of the key. It would however, start at the second or third. (WhichI was usually 10 to 20 minutes later) The distributor has been leaking oil since that month and the tube seals were corroded. I fixed the tube seals and got the oil out of the cylinder. Several days later, the car wouldn't start at all after I had turned it off to put gas in. The car turns over but won't stay on as soon as I let the key turn back. I've checked the engine and from what I've seen the only visible oil leak from the top is from the distributor BUT, as soon as I got under I noticed that nearly the entire bottom of the block was soaked in oil. Not only the oil pan but back awards the front bumper as well.

Any suggestions on why it isn't starting?

I would guess your oil leak it not related but it sounds like a bad ignition switch if it starts then shut off after key is returned from the crank position.
