How to Replace a Distributor Cap in Toyota?


Its a plastic cap and and on its top the sparks wires get connected.A small plastic rotor spins inside the distributor cap, firing each spark plug as it rotates. If the distributor gets faulty there the engine may not perform well. in most cases it has been noticed that only replacing the cap does not helps but with cap the rotors also need to be replaced. The procedure is as follows:--- 1) First of all disconnect the negative battery terminal. 2) Then remove the spark-plug wires . Note:-- Before removing the spark plug wires please note down how and where the wires are connected,then only remove the connections. 3) Then on the distributor there will be a cap.remove that cap.the cap is connected by two pins.you will have to press the pins from each side to loosen the distributor cap.Then lift the distributor cap from the top. 4)Then remove the rotor From distributor The rotor is fitted with two screws.Remove the screws and loosen the rotor. 5) Then lift the rotor out from its shaft. 6) To install new rotor and cap.reverse the procedure. This will help.Thanks.

Want to remove and replace the distributor in my 1997 gmc


1 Remove the plastic cover from the engine block with a wrench, then let the spark plug wires lead you to the distributor. It's at the back of the engine block.


2 Remove the negative cable from the battery at the side of the engine compartment; carefully pull the spark plug wires off the distributor cap so you don't damage them. Use a screwdriver to take off the coil leads from the distributor and the electrical connector at the bottom of the distributor.


3 Loosen the clamps and take off the distributor cap. Mark the parts to align the rotor position to the distributor housing and the housing to the engine block. This will help replace parts correctly during distributor installation.


4 Unbolt the distributor hold-down bolt with a wrench and remove the distributor from the engine.


5 Install the new Sierra distributor, aligning the marks for proper seating in the engine block. When ordering the distributor, give the parts dealer your model, year and engine size. You can order part number A1841639 from Parts Train for a 4.3L engine.


6 Re-install the distributor hold-down bolt. Replace the distributor cap and put the clamps back on. Attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor, put on the spark plug wires and coil leads, and hook up the negative battery cable.

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.

Firing order for a 1986 gmc s15


FIRING ORDERS

To avoid confusion, ALWAYS replace spark plug wires one at a time.

The most important thing to remember about the removal and installation of a distributor, cap or spark plug cable is that all wires MUST be labelled before they are disconnected. Keep in mind that these figures depict a firing order where the distributor cap terminals are relative to EACH OTHER only and they do not necessarily depict the tower positions in relation to the rest of the engine. This is true because any distributor which has been removed and reinstalled may have been installed with the No. 1 spark plug tower at any position (360 degrees) in relation to the rest of the motor, as long as the rotor aligned to the No. 1 tower when the No. 1 cylinder was at TDC of the compression stroke (valves closed, ready for the plug to fire). As long as the remaining wires were connected in the correct firing order sequence (depending on direction of distributor rotation) the engine will run. DO NOT EVER remove more than one wire from the distributor cap at a time unless you tag ALL wires and towers to assure proper installation.

Pasenger side isnt firing with new plugs and wires


Recheck the rotor position and spark plug wiring for correct positions for starters. camshaft sensor?
-------------------
You need to bump the starter over till you get the timing mark up on the front of the harmonic balancer to line up with the - O degree, Top Dead Center mark (TDC) first. With the Distributor cap off the distributor so you can see the Rotor. The rotor will rotate almost to the front pointing at the back of the throttle body of the EFI. You need to mark the distributor cap , once you get it on ZERO, to mark it as number one, on the post bulge on the cap that the rotor points to. this is the post we start with in putting the wires back on in sequence. This puts the wires back on the cap according to the firing order you see on the intake manifold. The rotation of the rotor you see...as you bump the started over, tells you how the wires...in sequence go around the cap...the firing order from number 1 goes in that direction. Remember on the vehicle ..the odd numbered cylinders are on the drivers side...Number one at the front ..then 3, 5, 7 to the back. All the even cylinders are passanger side 2 at the front ..then 4, 6, 8 in order to the back. You really need to tab the wires at the Cap End... as to which one is which cylinder. Use a piece of masking tape make a flag tab folded around the wire so you can easily see its number. Then run your sequence of firing order puting the wires to the cap in that order. This assumes you still have the wires on the right sparkplug....if you pulled the wires off the Cap and the sparkplugs...its OK..just mark which ones fit to the cylinder...one at a time...and tab it the same number on each end first. Post back if you are lost...tell me what has been removed...and what you left hooked up the same as it was BEFORE you started. It will go back together...and run . If you pulled out the distributor base then we need to talk.
please do rate the solution.
