What was the resolution to your problem?
I had a major leak on my '95 and it ended up being a leak in timing cover gasket near the oil passageway that goes from block to timing cover... at least that is where I think it was leaking. I also had a minor leak in comparison, actually small seeping of oil from intake, so I did intake, supercharger, and valve cover gaskets and now have zero leaks. All of this was quite a job, by my standards.
I also found out why my engine is so noisy - the balancer shaft. I don't know if it is coincidence or what (age/mileage), but recently my harmonic balancer broke, I got the massive oil leak, and the balancer shaft makes a terrible lot of noise (seems like way too much end-play). This motor has been noisy as ever since I have owned (25k miles, now 130k miles), but not nearly this noisy.
I decided I was not going to pull the motor and dig any deeper...probably just see what happens.
