Your rotorbutton is under the distributor cap and it needs to come off. You should see 2 screws on the side of the cap, use a screwdriver andpush down and turn them 1/4 turn, lift the cap. DON'T pull the wires off the cap unless you mark them so you can put them back in their exact location. DON'T turn the distributor unless you mark it's exact location with the motor. You may have to wiggle to get the cap off with the wires on but it will save you a lot of grief.
If you want to get to the rotor button to change it you should do the cap at the same time. In that case you can transfer the wires to make removal of the old cap easier BUT make sure you have the new cap lined up exactly in the same position as the old one before you do. Hope this helps.

I also have a power window that will not go down on the passenger side. Is there a site I can go to that will show me how to take the door apart to check the wiring and/or motor.

Sometimes the boot coming out of the front of the door gets a wire broke in it you can just pull the boot out from the door or the door post and inspect for any broken wires if your on the fence about tearing the door apart that is the easiest but if the wires are good the door panel isnt hard to remove just note once all the screws are out the panel slides up to come off if you just pry it off it will break all the fingers that hold it to the door

My son lost the key to his 1991 Chevy Cavalier. What's the easiest and cheapest way to get his car going again?

Rip into the stearing column, remove both wires from ignition, put on a push button and use the button to start the car. Becomes easy to steal tho. Maybe hide the button

Rear sliding doors are hard to open manually . does not open automaticlely. when I push the button, you hear a click sound, but nothing happens. what should I do ?

The easiest fix is to check the railing or any reason it may not be closing smoothly...there may be an obstruction or something protruding that keeps it from operating properly. Good Luck!!!

a sensor may have been pushed out of place. check behind each rotor to ensure that all sensors are about 1/16 inch away from ring.
Or just tell the mech that did the brakes to fix what he broke.
