I have a 2001 Honda Crv and the check engine light is flashing. We have changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. Auto zone put a mter on and said it is miss firing on # 2 with code P1399.

Check #2 injector for proper operation. If thats ok, test the Distributor assembly and crank sensor for proper operation. These components control fuel and spark timing!!

Can I change out a distributor on a 1990 honda civic, or does it necessitate a trip to the shop?

The distributor on Honda engines are quite easy. I do not have a step by step but a local auto parts store like Auto Zone can give you step by step instructions and they can talk you through them. I did a cap and coil on a 90 Acura Integra. It only took about an hour. It should only take you about 2 hours to do the distributor if you also have to do the rotor. But usually you only need the coil and cap.

They're idiots. If the check-engine light is flashing, your engine is misfiring, which is why the truck is shaking. Continuing to drive like that is very dangerous for the engine and can cause permanent damage.

First thing to do is to put new plugs in and make sure they're properly gapped (most plugs come pre-gapped these days, but verify it). Install them and try it out.

Your truck (I believe) has a distributor rather than individual coilpacks, so if the plugs don't do it, inspect the spark plug wires and see if any are damaged. If so, replace the whole set.

Take the distributor cap off and inspect the rotor and contact points on the bottom of the cap. The contact points should be clear of corrosion. The edge of the rotor should be ridged, like the edge of a dime. If it is not, replace the cap and rotor.

These are the most common reasons for a misfiring engine. Hopefully one or more will fix your truck - post up if they don't and we can continue to troubleshoot it.

Check engine light

Before you start replacing everything it is definitely worth investing $60 for a code reader to see exactly what the code is. We recently spent a ton of money on our 2000 CRV with persistent check engine. Dealership replaced rotor, cap, wires, plugs etc. Turned out to be burnt exhaust valves. Rebuilt engine was bad enough without all the money we spent for no reason before we found the real problem. At least with the code reader you will know where to start looking.
Good Luck.

Go to Auto Zone and have the Suburban scanned for DTC codes, Auto Zone scan for free and most Auto shop will do it for $10.00 to $20.00 since they want your business cause they know most large Auto Parts store scan for free.
It sounds like you have a miss fire which can be caused by and O2 sensor or dirty MAF sensor which can be cleaned or time to replace the rotor and cap, plug wire and spark plugs.
Note that the distributor cap and rotor is made of plastic and is know to crack do to time and heat. There is also a rubber valve or screen at the bottom of the distributor that get's dirty and the inside of the distributor collects with condesation and corrode the rotor and caps too.
Good luck and hope this helps, Get it scanned and see if it's a sensor that is causing the miss fire on the hightway. If not then replace the cap and rotor and clean out the distributor if needed. Inspect the plug wire and replace if needed and change the plugs.

Keep me posted. be glad to help you out.

My check engine light is on

If you now have a check engine light on stop at your local auto zone for a free diagnostics check.
They can give you the specific code and a easy explination of what is causing your problem

Sounds like you might have bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, mabye even a fuel issue.
Try doing a full rutine matinence.
Plugs, Wires, Distributor Cap and Rotor, and see if that helps.
