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.

2000 Nissan Xterra, v6 4x2 automatic. have a problem had code po325, and po306 come up, the car will not start. changed the spark plug, distributor cap and rotor. the xterra trys to turn on but it sounds...


You got a timing chain
Injector cleaner,in my opinion is a waste of money
PO306 could be a missing coil on cyl #6,still should start
PO325 Knock Sensor-most likely okey
Plugs,cap and rotor,will not prevent it from starting,it used to run with old parts, before the current problem!

I suggest you make sure you got the plug wires on correctly and number them with a ball point pen,on both ends.
Make a diagram of the dist cap wire locations.
Check out the TPS Sensor and make sure you have all intake ducting in place. You need the MAF Sensor in the system to run have it run
Have you checked fuel pressure? The pump may be going bad

97 dodge ram no spark


then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed

Had work done on my car (36K miles on the car): oil change, new plugs, new plug wires, new dist cap, new dist rotor, fuel filter, pvc valve, and brake work. Now it runs like ****. rough running and exhaust...


Sounds like a fuel mix problem possibly the oxygen sensor. If it ran like this immediately after the new plugs, I would check to make sure all the plug wires are on the right plugs and secure. Good luck!

Hi I have a 2001 Xterra, Manual, 213,000, runs rough at random


If your mechanic changed the spark plugs. Make sure he did a few things.

First make sure he used NGK plugs. I have seen other make plugs cause running conditions.

The other thing is make sure plug number 6 was changed. I can not tell you how many times I have seen shops leave that one cause it's to hard. That also can give you the ruff condition.

Last but not least, if the distributor cap and rotor and wires were not replaced, it may be possible that you could have a spark issue being loss. If you notice it more when conditions are wet, then it has to be related to those items.

Thanks Jay!

CAR IS RUNNING ROUGH HAS 122K. MAKES LOUD NOISE


With that many miles, I think you need to replace the timing chain or belt. Also if you havent changed the plugs, plug wires, fuel filter and had the fuel injectors cleaned lately, this might help.

My 2ooo jetta is running a little rough. could it


Yes, it could be the wires, especially if this started after the plugs were replaced. The wires could have broke inside after pulling them off the plugs. There shouldn't be a distributor cap, there should be a coil pack on each spark plug, and I think that one of them is your culprit.

Have you changed all the plugs to platinum and wires? My xterra was doing that and I changed all of them and now it runs great. Also, I changed the distribitor cap and rotor button.
