What is a Distributor and what does it do?

A distributor is a part on a car that spins, setting the timing and firing order of the cylinders while doing so. There are spark plug wires attached around it and as it spins, it sends current to one at a time, firing each cylinder in succession. The distributor consists of a rotating arm inside the distributor cap. The metal part of the rotor conducts the electricity from the ignition coil.

When should I replace my Distributor?

If you remove the ignitiondistributor cap and notice around the top inner edges any rust or corrosion, then it is time to to replace it. Distributors need to be monitored every one to two years.

What happens if I don’t?

If you do not change your distributor, its deterioration will result in the engine running poorly, thus making your vehicle difficult to run.

How to do it: Replacing your Door Mirror:

  1. Remove the distributor cap from your distributor, which you can often do by hand. Sometimes you’ll also need a screwdriver.
  2. Get a piece of paper and diagram the electrical wires that are running into the ignition distributor, as it is important that you replace them in the same places. Once you’ve done that, go ahead and remove the wires.
  3. Now make some marks in order to help you install the new distributor in the correct position. First, make sure that you will be able to put the distributor housing in the proper spot relative to the engine. Second, make a mark on the inside of the distributor for the rotor position, as it will have to be in the same place.
  4. Take out the new ignition distributor parts and match up the marking on the outside housing and put one in place on the new distributor. On the inside, try to line up the rotor in a matching position as well.
  5. Take off any of the bolts that are locking down the old distributor to the engine and pull it away. Transfer the remaining marks over to the new distributor.
  6. Put the new distributor in place, paying careful attention to its positioning so that it matches up.
  7. Now tighten back down any bolts that were holding the distributor in place, but leave a little room to farther tighten them in a bit. Make it possible to rotate the distributor by hand and line up all of the marks properly.
  8. Re-connect any electrical wires that you pulled off before, and make sure that you do so in the same exact positions. Put the distributor cap back on.
  9. Start up your engine and let it warm up, then shut it off and place a timing light on your first spark plug. Fire the engine up again. Now use the timing light and find directions on how to set the timing for your vehicle. Once that is done, you can tighten down the distributor ignition system fasteners.

Anything else I need to know?

For some vehicles, you may need to remove some ancillary parts to get to the ignition distributor repair, so be prepared for that. If you run into problems with that process, you may need to do some research to get instructions that are specific to your vehicle.
