Replaced the distributur ran but barly tryed to rotate the dist but ran out of room. pulled out and rotated then reinstalled now wont start. Help : )


Take out #1 plug if possible. put straw or something similar in plug hole on top of piston, put a wrench on crankshaft pulley nut and rotate engine. when piston gets to the top it should be on tdc. and rotor pointing to #1 wire on distributor cap. replace plug and adjust dist, if piston is on top, and dist, is off. pull dist so the rotor button points to #1. GOD-bless! OR YOU CAN ALSO ALIGN THE TDC MARK ON CRANKSHAFT DAMPER.

Engine? Check to see if the dist rotor turns while cranking with cap removed, if not most likely t-belt broken. In this case engine damage (ie:bent valves, damage/broken pistons)

How do I set the distributor on a 2000 gmc jimmy? Just changed the intake gaskets, but forgot to mark the position of the rotor.


Get the number one piston up, Take the spark plug out the first one on the drivers side.Rotate the engine until the piston reaches TDC before it starts to decend back. U can use a screw driver to put in the spark plug hole.The rotor must point towards the number one spark plug. your local library will have this infor or autozone

Replacing ignition distributor on 99 mecury villager and have found top dead on cilander #1 where does the rotor point


Well before you took the old distributor off take notice of rotor button location.If you already removed the old distributor locate number one cylinder and point rotor button to that cylinder. it might have to be done a couple of times to get it just right.

I dont know how to put my spark plug wires in my car


firing order 1-4-2-5-3-6

  1. Insert each ignition wire on proper terminal of distributor cap . Ensure ignition wires are properly seated on the terminals. The No. 1 terminal is identified on distributor cap .
not sure if #1 cylinder is on the front right or front left. Call a dealer.

Installation
Before installing distributor , visually inspect distributor . Inspect the O-ring. It should fit tightly and be free of cuts. The drive gear should be free of nicks, cracks and excessive wear. Rotate distributor drive shaft. It should move freely, without binding.
  1. To install distributor correctly, No. 1 piston (6108) must be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of compression stroke. Remove No. 1 cylinder spark plug (12405) and rotate crankshaft (6303) clockwise until No. 1 piston is on the compression stroke.
  1. With No. 1 piston on compression stroke, align timing pointer with TDC on the crankshaft damper.
  1. Align locating boss on distributor rotor with hole on armature. Fully seat distributor rotor on distributor shaft.
  1. Rotate distributor shaft so blade on distributor rotor is pointing toward mark on distributor base that was previously made in Step 2 of the Removal procedure.
  1. While installing, continue rotating distributor rotor slightly so leading edge of the vane is centered in vane switch stator assembly.
  1. Rotate distributor in engine front cover to align leading edge of vane and vane switch stator assembly. Verify distributor rotor is pointing at No. 1 mark on distributor base. If vane and vane switch stator cannot be aligned by rotating distributor in engine front cover , remove distributor enough to just disengage distributor gear from camshaft gear. Rotate distributor rotor enough to engage distributor gear on another tooth of camshaft gear. Repeat Step 1 if necessary.
  1. Install distributor hold-down clamp and bolt. Tighten bolt, but leave it loose enough to rotate distributor .
  1. Install distributor cap , No. 1 spark plug and ignition wires. Check that ignition wires are securely connected to the distributor cap and spark plugs . Tighten distributor cap hold-down screws to 2.0-2.6 Nm (18-23 lb-in).
  1. Reconnect distributor to engine control sensor wiring .
  1. Set initial engine ignition timing according to procedures found in Section 8A of the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual.
  1. After engine ignition timing is set, tighten distributor hold-down bolt on to 20-30 Nm (15-22 lb-ft).
  1. Recheck initial engine ignition timing. Adjust if necessary.

Rigoe the points for the timing belt are usually located on the sprokets in conection with marks or dots on the engine block some where around the sprockets that hold the timing belt. Remenber to bring the piston number one to TDC (top dead center), this means you have to locate the piston number one, take the spark plug out and turn the cranshaft (the one with the pulley) by hand until the piston is all the way up. On the distributor the rotor should point to the spark-plug wire number one (you can make a mark outside of the distributor cap where the number one spark-plug wire is pointing so when you take the cap off you can see if the rotor is pointing the same direction). With the timing belt cover off you are going to be able to aling all this points at the exact locacation all together. So we have: Piston number one at TDC, The rotor(enside the distributor cap) pointing to the number one spark-plug wire, and the mark of the sprockets pointing the marks of the engine block( litle dot or dash). If you get all this right you are have done a good job and ready to make a trip you can get all this just by turning the cranshaft by hand with a rachet and a big socket. God bless you.
