Hi. You need to unhook your battery so no one gets cooked while removing parts or touching wires. Once the battery is disconnected, then remove the fasteners on the distributor cap. They are typically two small L-shaped rods that have a screwdriver head on the top with a spring underneath to keep them tightly secure. You need to suppress the rods from the top with a screwdriver and then turn them to free the cap from its grip. Once the cap is off, then there should be a couple of guide screws that need to be detached to remove the rotor and replace it with another.

All the best!

Hi,

It will have a screw holding it in place either in the top or on the side of it.

If you need more information can you send me the Year Model of the vehicle.

Thanks

Every time it starts raining truck starts missing and cutting out it's a 97 f 150 ford 4.6 motor.


Possibly a plug wire or cracked distributor cap. I'd take a spray bottle and while it's running (be careful not to get your body parts in danger of the fan) spray some water on the cap area. If everything seems fine, you could spray down each plug wire at a time. See if you find the culprit that way. For a vehicle so old, if you haven't done a tune up lately. It's probably a good time. Replace the distributor cap and rotor. Plugs and wires.

What connects the distributor to the can or is it one solid piece ? I'm asking cause I removed the distributor cap an realized the distributor rocks an doesn't seem to be connected to anything .


There will be some slop when you turn the rotor. More if your car is older and still has the mechanical advance. Should not be more than a couple degrees.

If you can turn the rotor 360 degrees around, the roll pin holding the distributor gear to the distributor shaft is sheared. A gear on the camshaft drives the distributor thru this gear.

I have fire to distributor but not to plugs or fuel pump


I owned a 75 Chevy wagon with HEI ignition and liked to never found the problem. It seems under the center contact on the distributor rotor would get a hole burnt in it, and then all sparks go straight to ground.

1985 Nissan 300zx seems to be "missing".


suspect 1) bad spark plug(s) - change whole set if needed, (2) failing ignition coil (3) failing
distributor component(s), or (4) worn out distributor cap and/or rotor - if these need to be changed,
change both the cap and rotor as a set.
COST: if yo do any of these repairs yourself, your parts costs would be fairly low, but getting a garage
to rebuild your distributor could be costly

Element on distributor rotor keeps breaking off disabling the vehicle. How do you fix the problem?


It sounds as if the distributor shaft is moving, causing the rotor contact to collide with the distributor cap. With the cap off have someone turn the engine over and watch the rotor for a wobble. If there is a wobble either the bushings/bearings in the distributor housing are worn out or the shaft is bent or worn.

I am replacing the distributor on a 2000 nissan xterra v6cyl 4wd my question is how to tell if i have the #1 piston in the up position


Pull # 1 spark plug, install compression gauge or somehow block hole and jog engine until you feel or record compression, then line up TDC marks on crank pulley. Now when you drop distributor in, rotor should line up with # 1 spark plug wire tab under cap. Make sure you have all ignition spark disconnected, one way or another. If you haven't pulled other distributor yet, it should be easier, just mark housing for reference, jog until rotor is at # 1 tab, remove old one and re-install new in same position.

My92 toyota tercel is missing. I have checked the oil and radiator and they seem to be fine. What could the problem be?


Misfiring?  Have you checked the sparkplugs?  When was the last tuneup? A tuneup may fix that.

ROTOR BURNING UP


The rotor is somehow making direct contact with one or more distributor contacts.

Check the contacts inthe cap to see if you find any physical damage to one or more contacts caused by the rotor.

Could be rotor lead too long (file it down) or maybe the distributor shaft is bent or not seated. Remove cap and observe the distributor shaft as someone cranks the engine. Does it wobble? Can't tell? Place a stiff reference parallel to the shaft and turn engine again.

97 Nissan 200sx cranks, won't turn over


If you indeed are getting no spark on any plugs, check your plug wire that runs from the rotor to your ignition coil- the one that doesn't go to the engine. Make sure the internal connections didn't pull out and get crushed back in or fall out. Try one of your other plug wires on it and see if it fires- won't run good but you will see difference and be done troubleshooting. Other than that, you bought the rotor button and and rotor as a set right? Make sure the button metal tip is contacting the cap. If you got the wrong one, it may sit too low for the contacts even if it is long enuff. If you were getting spark, I would just say you got the firing order wrong.
