I suspect either the distributor or timing belt went south.
Can you remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor is turning while you crank the engine over?
if the rotor doesnt turn... , its the timing belt.

check for spark , but chances are , its the distributor... I've seen many honda distributors go bad .

I have a 2000 Honda Civic Ex that won't start. I was driving it and it acted like it was running out of gas and then it stopped and now it won't start. It has gas, and it is not the timing belt or the fuel...


Check the distributor cap and rotor. I had the same problem. They told me it is pretty common for cap and rotor to get burnt and then it will not spark correct. Pull the cap if it has burnt lines it needs to be replaced. I had to purchase an entire distributor. Thats the only way they sell them but it was fairly cheap. Check the manual but I think it only fits in one position when installing it..

Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

2000 nissan frontier going down the highway and just shuts off when i took the distributor cap off the rotor button was not turning as i turned the truck over is that a bad distributor


I'm not familiar with your car, but the distributor rotor should turn whenever the engine is cranked, if not check to make sure the rotor screw isn't missing (if it has one, some are held in with a spline instead), try spinning the rotor by hand if the rotor turns but not the shaft the rotor is broken, if the shaft spins the drive gear pin is sheared or the cam gear is shot.

How to replace a water pump on a 1995 bmw 318is


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the distributor cap and rotor. Remove the rotor adapter, the dust shield and the distributor housing.
  3. Remove the fan. The fan must be held stationary with tool 11 5 030 or some sort of flat blade cut to fit over the hub and drilled to fit over 2 of the studs on the front of the pulley. Remove the fan coupling nut; left hand thread-turn clockwise to remove.
  4. Remove the belt and pulley.
  5. Remove the rubber guard and distributor and or upper timing belt cover.
  6. Compress the timing tensioner spring and clamp pin with the proper tool.

Observe the installed position of the tensioner spring pin on the water pump housing for reinstallation purposes.
  1. Remove the water hoses, remove the 3 water pump bolts and remove the pump.

To install:
  1. Clean the gasket surfaces and use a new gasket.
  2. Install the water pump in position. Note the position of the tensioner spring pin. Torque M8 bolts to 16-17 ft. lbs. (20-24 Nm) and M6 bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm). Connect the hoses.
  3. Release the tensioner from the holding pin. Install the upper timing cover. Install the pulley and tighten the bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm). Install the belt and tighten.
  4. Install the fan, distributor housing and dust shield. Tighten the rotor adapter to 39-47 ft. lbs. (55-65 Nm). Install the rotor, O-ring and cap.

Purchase a replacement distributor for a 1994 Mirage 1.5L The key for the new seems to be 180 degree off from the other - since the rotor points the opposite direction when I put it on. Did I get the wrong...


Have you tried turning the distributor whie it is running? It should smooth right out the closer you get to the right spot. Dont take anything apart if you dont have to. Good luck

Ignition Module


The module is INSIDE of the distibutor.

Disconnect the Battery, remove the distributor cap, then the rotor, then the leak cover.

The ignition coil has a little spring at the top and is held in by two large screw-bolts.

The ignition control module has 3 wires attached to the top and one on the side. It is held in with two screw-bolts and should come right out.
