My car runs rough even will stall changed spark plugs and wires service engin soon light still comes on when ideling it sound like pup pup like


If the check engine light is on, you need to scan the computer for trouble codes next. The codes may direct you to the problem area.
You can research "GM trouble codes" online to get the procedure and the meaning of the codes you retrieve.

Is it hard to change distributor on 2000 nissan pathfinder


Hi there;This is for a 2000 Nissan Truck Pathfinder 4WD 3.3L SFI 6cyl


Distributor Cap & Rotor - Removal & Installation


NOTE
The 1996-00 3.3L engines were equipped with a distributor.


Disconnect the negative battery cable.
If the distributor cap is to be replaced, mark the ignition wires for identification and remove them from the distributor cap.
Remove any components necessary to access the distributor cap.
Completely loosen the distributor cap mounting fasteners.
Carefully remove the distributor cap, taking care not to damage the cap seal or rotor, then position the cap aside.
If necessary, remove the rotor retainer.
Carefully lift the rotor off the distributor shaft.
NOTE
Inspect the distributor cap to housing seal for damage and/or cracks. Replace if cracks are detected.




To install:


Install the rotor onto the distributor shaft and tighten the rotor mounting fastener, if equipped.
Position the distributor cap seal on the distributor housing, then position the distributor cap on the housing.
Install the distributor cap by tightening the mounting fasteners in a crisscross pattern. Use care to not over-tighten the fasteners.
Reconnect the spark plug wires, making sure to install them exactly in the same position from which they were removed.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1986 chevrolet celebrity i have no fire to the coil from the switch is my problem in the steering column because the column is loose and shakey


If you are not getting spark at the coil, then you're coil may need replaced. Also, pull the distributor cap and check the cap on the inside as well as the rotor. If you have not recently tuned up, then I suggest replacing the spark plugs, spark plug wired, (coil wire should come with them); the coil; distributor cap and rotor. When doing the spark plugs and wires, start with one, and replace the plug, then the wire for that plug - do this one at a time - do not take them all off at once, unless you have a book that shows the firing order. (Having a book for any vehicle is a good idea). Please let me know if you have any further questions, or need further assistance.
In addition, if this does not suffice - replace the starter relay. If this is blown, the car won't even turn over.

Changed distributor cap now car will not crank


You should check to make sure that the rotor button is in place. Also check the coil wire and the fire orderr to make sure that no wires are crossed. These are pretty much the only reasons why your car won't crank with the distributor cap change.

No spark to the spark plugs


First thing to do is change the cap and the rotor in the distributor.They can cause the car to just die like tha tbecause the rotor can burn through or the carbon button in the cap can wear away. Both these can cause the spark to go directly to ground.The ignition module or pickup in the distributor could also be the cause.Very common failure items in older GM's.
