My distributor cap fell off whiole driving, and truck quit. the rotor was also off, as both screws had fallen out that hold it on.. My son installed them about two years ago. Mabe screws were not tight in...


Hello,

I understand your problem, and I will try and give you the best advice here of what to do.

Yes, most likely when your son installed the distributor cap/rotor the screw might have been stripped some or just loose. And yes over a period of time they can work them self off, mostly because the rotor itself is the moving part. The distributor itself if screwed down correctly does not move, but the rotor inside of course does move.

The best way to solve this, and to make sure this works correctly, is to purchase a new distributor cap and rotor, reason for this is, then the screw will be new and do not have to worry about possible stripped where rotor tightens down. It is possible he might even cross threaded them, which is still better off to buy new rotor and cap (they normally come with the screw if not , have them match them up to fit) Just need to give like AUTO ZONE, the make, model, engine and they can hook you up. Now I realize you can use old cap and rotor, but problem is this, because it came off and so forth, why take the chance of the rotor or cap getting banged up, and then will could have some electrical issues, sense there plastic and only takes a small hairline crack to cause problem. best to replace both and then secure down snug. Almost any garage, or a friend that has a couple screw drivers and some knowledge can do this for you for like a cold beer. I hope this helps you, and I think this will be a easy, low cost solution. Thanks Mike from Fixya.

I am replacing the magnetic pick up on a 1999 dodge ram 1500 pick up is thier any trick in removing the distributor cap?


NO, it simple, but if you are removing the wires off the cap make sure to label them and mark the cap so that wires go back in the same place, if you remove the cap screws lift cap to the side then remove the rotor,sometimes the rotor is tight on the shaft you may have to wiggle and pull it off if thats the case then clean the shaft with a wire brush so rotor slides back on good,with rotor removed just lift pickup and follow wire to connection and unplug and install new one in the same postion, hope this helps.

Remove the rotor


On the 2.0L motor, pop off the 2 clips on the distributor, holding the cap on, move the cap out of the way. Pull the rotor off the shaft. And press on the new one. Then remove the center coil wire from old cap, line up new cap to old cap, and transfer 1 wire at time to the new cap. There is a notch where the cap fits to the distributor housing, make sure you have the new cap, exactly like the old one, both notches at 3 o'clock, for insistance. Reinstall the cap with the notch mating the distributor housing slot, and snap on the clips.

How do i remove old rotor to replace with a new one


brake rotor or distributor rotor?

The brake rotor usually gets rusted on....putting a hammer on one portion of the rotor face and striking the rotor face 180 degrees from the first hammer should do it.

Distributor rotor is under the distributor cap. Two screws usually free the cap and expose the rotor. You pull off the old one and push on the new one!

Good luck and be careful!

    How to install a distributor cap and rotor on a 1985 chevy truck?


    I have had good luck with Echlin caps and rotors that are from NAPA.
    You are going to need to mark your spark plug wires so you can get them back on the new cap in the right place. Tape with numbers on it or what ever you can come up with. There should be 4 screws around the lower part of the cap. Take your screwdriver and push down on the screw and turn like a quarter turn counter clockwise and you will see it release from the distributor. If you look at the new cap you will be able to see how it works. Once you have the cap off you will have to transfer the coil to the new cap. There should be 2 small screws on the top of the cap that hold the cover over the coil.
    I think there are 4 screws holding the coil in to the cap and you will have to pull the wires and terminals out of the cap as you are removing the coil. Be careful when you retighten the screws in new cap.
    When you replace the rotor you will see by looking at the bottom of it that it can only fit one way and lock on to distributor.
    Just take your time. If you have any problems I will try to help.

    Sputtering after car warms up ,seems like a misfire every so ofte


    it should be pretty easy...one wire at a time is the way to go....just hold the old cap with the wires still attached in the same orientation as the new cap installed, and swap the wires from old cap to new 1 at a time....hopefully it fixes you sputtering problem
