Default Smoke Coming Out Of Distributer (long post)

OK, here's one that's totally stumping me...I'm driving the other day,
in the rain, and my '90 Acura Legend gives a slight pop from the
engine compartment and then stalls out. I pull over to the side of the
road, open the hood and see some smoke coming from around the
distributer. Couldn't really tell if it was actually smoke or steam
from water hitting it (remember it was raining). Got back into the
car, wouldn't start. Smelled an electrical type smell coming thru the
vents. Waited 15 minutes, car stumbled but did start. Idled very
smooth for 10-15 seconds then crapped out again. Opened hood and,
again, saw smoke coming from the dist. Towed it to my mechanic, he let
it sit overnight called me today said he drove it around and nothing-
no problems at all...btw, its still raining today, in case you think
it might be rain-related. Anyone have any ideas on this one? This
might be unrelated, but lately every time I take a hard left turn, you
get a strong fresh oil burning smell and a little smoke (oil, not
electrical) from the engine bay. Its like the oil is sloshing and
hitting something hot then quickly burning off. I'm at a loss, here
