Remove the distributor cap - -remove the rotor - check under the cap for moisture and also check for cracks - check the center of the cap for the unit that is hung on a spring to be sure it isn't stuck down inside the cap center. The center piece looks like a dark pencil eraser - it should be sprung so that is doesn't sit down inside the cap like it is stuck.
You might want to get get a new cap and rotor depending on how old your units are.
Be sure there is no moisture and replace the cap and rotor.

This problem usually happens when the distributor gets wet.You can either take it out and dry out off or just replace it as long as you have to remove it.Make sure you do both cap and rotor.Hope this helps.Good luck.
