Wen water get inside the distributor it can become dry?

Yes, you can dry out a wet distributor cap. The best and fastest thing to use is acetone; you can get it in the paint section of a hardware store. Acetone has a very high affinity for water, it dries really fast and has very low toxicity; they use it for finger nail polish remover. [Most finger polish remover has oil in it, but some is marked 100%, make sure you don't get the stuff with oil in it or it will attract dirt; so will WD-40 no matter how much they claim you can use it for drying out distributor caps.]
Just make sure all of the acetone has dried before reinstalling the distributor cap or it will burn inside the cap and possibly crack it.

I get spark comming in to the distributer but not comming out whats do i do to fix this

The distributor cap may be faulty, it could be cracked or the spark is arcing to ground, or the rotor button is faulty. Also check the spark plug leads from the distributor to the spark plugs.
If the distributor is faulty (ie cracked or there is a carbon track on the inside of the distributor cap) then replace the distributor.
If the rotor button is faulty, then replace the rotor button.

Feels like its stuttering when i drive it (feels like it is gonna cut off)

Possible causes for your problem are:
  1. Cracked distributor cap
  2. Bad spark plug wires
  3. Fouled spark plugs
  4. Bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor
  5. Bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor
A visual inspection of the top 3 should take the least amount of time. Look for cracks in the distributor cap, burned spots inside the cap, bare spots on the spark plug wires. Pulling a spark plug and looking for evidence of oil to determine if it's been fouled.

Hi, i have a 2001 mk4 golf 1.4 s fitted with the axp engine. had the head gasket changed last week, all skimmed , pressure tested properly etc. got the car back and what i thought was just unburnt oil on...

I had a look at the video and it looks like steam - to confirm oil will not evaporate but steam will disappear. If it is steam you have a blown head gasket again or a crack in the head, but you definitely seem to be getting water/steam into your crankcase.

The distributor cap leaks oil. how can i repair it? do i have to remove the housing? i'm not sure but i do work on the car myself.

I believe the cap is not leaking but the oil is leaking from where the distributor shaft goes in the head assembly. on the shaft there is a rubber seal that gets brittle over the time and gets cracked and eventually leaks. The seal is usually not very expensive but you will have to remove the distributor assembly and take it to the local parts store and have them match it. Be sure to look up your firing order and also mark the distributor to the respective cylinder.

Good luck!

Acts like it will start and will not turn over.Has fire going in distrubuter but not out

Hi Friend:

#1) Check your Distributor Cap and Rotor,Cap could be Cracked or Damaged also Rotor.

#2) Since you have 4-coils its possible that 1-or more coils are Damaged,Test each one Individually,to make sure its not a Coil.

#3) Next if All checks out on #1 and #2 ,Then it sounds like your Ignition Control Module Or your Coil Pick-up, Start with your Control Module 1st. Is only held by a couple screws and wire connectors.

#4) Your pick up coil is located below your Distributor cap,The Distributor must be removed to replace it.

#5) If your distributor cap is not Cracked or Terminals Burn't or Carbon Deposits,I would Go Ahead and Replace the Control Module,its only like 30-35.00

This will help you solve your problem, Please let me know how you come out.

Thank You for using FixYa From: d_hubbs

Where the distributor cap is there is what looks

The oil pressure sensor is near the oil filter behind the distributor. I don't know if that is the sensor you're looking at. It usually gets damaged during an oil change when the filter is changed. The filter wrench slips and hits the sensor.

~My 1989 Pontiac Bonneville will not start and it looks like there is mud in the engine oil and under the distributor cap. I'm not sure what could be wrong.~

that is anti-freeze in your oil. you have either a blown head gasket or a crack in the block, heads or intake manifold. was it blowing out white smoke from the exhaust when you shut it off last time or did it overheat recently
