Question about 1990 Acura Legend
If you are speaking of the distributor parts, and the cap and rotor were what you cleaned, then you may have water in the distributor. When it collects on these two parts, the high voltage (spark plugs) can arc-over these parts causing burns in the component insulation. If you see any black streaks on either part--replace it. If you can visibly move the distributor shaft sideways in several directions, replace the distributor body. Check the oil for any sign of water in it. You should also check the PCV valve for plugging as it is responsible for removing vapors in the crankcase (which may have passed into the distributor). Hope this helps!
