1995 Mitsubishi Mirage, 1.8L engine distributor replacement

I have a 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage, 1.8L engine and need to replace the distributor. Autozone carries 2 that have different sized rotor Cams. Can I determine which one I need without removing it?

    I wanted to be able to drive it until the part is in. What their system says on the two parts is:

    With .526" diameter from long flat to the opposite side of rotor Cam.


    With .475" diameter from long flat to the opposite side of rotor Cam.

    I don't mind removing it if that's what it takes.

They should be able to do that. Give them the yr , make, model, enginesize and you mention the rotor cams. I've never heard that term except when speaking of point type ignitions.. Is this a point type? Do not be concerned about pulling the old one unless you need the car. Then, take the car to them and you can do your comparisons ther at the store, Good Luck What is your concern about pulling it out? -Ned

    One is over half in. .526 and the other is under 1/2 in by .025 If you have a venier caliper you can possibly get some measurements. Heck with it, pull it. Do this first remove the cap without removing any wire. then turn the engine until the rotor is pointing to a good reference poit mark something for it to point to, Then place a mark on the distributor body n line with where the rotor is pointing and on the block, now pull the distributor and droping the new one in won't be a problem. When marking the distributor body reference mark on the old dist mut be transfered before letting go of the old one. My phone is 909.630.3192 , I'll be glad to help if needed on reinstall.

Replaced the distributor cap and rotor button but button keep touching the cap

The rotor will install in several positions. However, it will only install correctly in one position. So if not installed correctly; it will not click all the way down and could contact/rub inside of cap.

I would check your wires make sure, its more common than not, but it could also be the engine control module as well. and unless the distributor was new could also be a bad module inside the distributor.

1995 mitsubishi mirage engine wobbles and dies after heating up.

It could be that the valves need adjusting or redone. When they heat up it swells the rubber and the metal. If you have a bent valve it should do it all the time or it could be one of the valve springs is going. Either way it sounds like it is something in the valve or the valve seats or the springs.

2000 mitsubishi mirage bogs on acceleration

Try replacing the two ignition coils on top the engine. My sons 1.8 had a problem with no power and occasional miss, which felt like a transmission problem but was fixed with the coils. We replaced both, but a less expensive route would be to swap out one at a time until you notice the difference.
