Question about 1996 Nissan Quest
I've got what i'm sure is a bad distibutor coil cable (one end is somewhat corroded) and every place I've been to will sell me an entirely new pack of spark plug cables for $40, but I just replaced the rest of my cables with new ones less than six months ago. needless to say, I am unable to afford the expense of replacing it today, but will be able to in a week or so. is there any way I can clean the cable (with baking soda or something) to help it conduct a little better until my next paycheck? if so, any ideas on the mixture and whether I should coat the connector in anything?
Yes you can!! Carefully remove the cable, clean the connection whith anything abrasive, sandpaper, wire brush, the use a smallamount of grease to coat the connection. do this on both the coil end and the wire. You should be just fine then. the best grease to use is 'dielectric' grease but wheel bearing or white lythium even margerine will work.
