I removed the distributer cap and rotor and now I don't know which way to put the rotor back on-as it seems to fit any way you put it. I have tried moving it and turning the key but the engine will not fire up. thanks in advance

Re: 1992 asuna sunrunner distributer
Auggie1, since you have turned the key you now need to find top dead center on #1 cylinder, there should be a cutout for the rotor (kind of like a notch it should fit into) with #1 at tdc (top dead center) the rotor contact should be inline,be sure of your firing order (wires) when you are done good luck if you need more help drop me a line

Do you mean you removed the distributor cap to work on the rotor inside the distributor? If you did not remove or loosen the distributor hold down bolt, you have done nothing that will affect spark timing or distribution. The distributor cap only fits on one way, so once you have replaced it and fastened it back down, your engine should run OK (if it was running OK before you removed the cap).
there should be three 8mm bolts holding the cap in place. remove those and the cap should come off the rotor is just pushed on. pull on the old one and it should pop off. the cap should be numbered so putting the wires back on should be no problem. If you need some more help PM me!
check for spark if you do not have spark and thie problem u are having now is the same as original problem it is most likely the ignition module also check to make sure distributer shaft / rotor turns while cranking also check rotor if it is burnt it can cause this also check for moisture under distributer cap if wet spray with brake clean and air dry
You have to take the access panel off inside the van. There used to be two screws on the outside under the hood and the two clips inside that have to be released. Mine was older so I don't know if they are the same. Find the wire that is going to #1 spark plug. The is the spark plug at the very front of the drivers side. Mark the wire and its relationship to the cap someway. Mark all the other wires in the cap so you know their location when you put the new distributer in. Or leave them in the cap if you are going to use the same cap. Take the cap off and turn the engine over so the rotor is pointing directly to the #1 wire. It may not hurt to make some other point of reference, where the rotor is pointing to. Loosen up the bolt at the base of the distributer, blow all dirt away and turn and pull up slightly on distributer. Do not crank engine at any point during this time until the new distributer is in. Once you have it loose take the bolt out or at least slide the clamp all the way out of the way, Remove the distributer. Remove the base gasket for the distributer and clean the surface and put a new gasket on. Put the new distributer in paying close attention to where the rotor has to line up. The point of reference I told you to make earlier. You need to turn the rotor slightly CCW from the reference point as it will turn CW a little when it is mated into the cam gear and seating to the motor. If the distributer will not go in where you need it, it may be possible that the oil pump drive has moved a little. You may need to get a long screwdriver and go into the distributer hole and turn is slightly. After you get the distributer in, you should be able to put the cap back on. Or put all wires back on to the same positions that I told you to mark earlier. If you followed this closely then the engine should start. It should probably be timed. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.
no special tools. phillips screwdriver is all you need. critical part is getting wires on the right terminals. You first have to identify the proper orientation of the cap. It only goes on one way. Look for the tang on the cap that must fit into the notch in the housing. Align the old and new caps and move the wires one by one from the old cap to the new cap. Then use the screwdriver to turn each of the 4 retaining lugs. You push down on the screwdriver and turn them CCW about a quarter to a half turn. The cap should then come off. The rotor is there underneath. Remove the 2 screws and install the new rotor--it only goes on one way. Put the cap on, making sure the tang fits into the notch. The lugs should go back easily if the cap is on right. That's it, you're done. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
1989 ford probe turbo 2.2L turbo the oil filter sandwich block thats adapted to the block of the motor... the Hole that comes out block and from where the sandwich adapter mounts to the block... is there suppose be some sorta plug or fitting there? is there possible get detailed picture so i know what im missing?
i have hole and ******** oil out... and trying get fixed so i can sell the car... to fix my current problem no motor for a mustang 5.0 gt so if anyone can help me out id greatly apppericate it...
take the spark plug out of the #1 cylinder and turn the engine by hand until the piston is at the top dead center of its stroke (put a screw driver in the hole and you should be able to tell when its all the way up). now pull the cap off the distributer the rotor should be pointing at the #1 cylinder wire. if not then the distributer is in the wrong possition. remove the distributer and point the rotor in the correct possition(#1 cylinder) and place the distributer back in.also if this is a used engine replace the cap,rotor plugs and wires.the truck should start. Hope this helps you out.
yes the cam gaer and the crank gear, caution if misaligned you can bend valves, you should buy a repiar manual for that car, they will give step by step directions onthat and many other repairs, hope this helps, good luck.
make sure your battery posts are clean and battery clamps are clean and tight. just follow the hot wire from battery it will lead you to the starter. check and make sure the wires are tight on starter.
