Question about 1994 Nissan Altima
Unless you accidentally removed the Distributor while trying to replace the cap it is not possible to do that. If you have the equipment to set timing and know what your timing marks are supposed to be at loosen the distributor lock down bolts and adjust the timing using a timing light. If you pulled the distributor assembly out because you removed the bolts instead of the screws for the distributor cap I highly recommend you go to a parts store and get a haynes repair manual on your vehicle, you are going to need it to get the timing back. if you are just concerned because the timing is a little off now that a new cap has been installed follow the instructions in the repair manual for adjusting the timing using a timing light.
