You're vehicle does not have a Distributor cap. It has electronically controlled coil/coils, individual to each cylinder. All new car's now use Multipack or individual coil assemblies. Hope this helped...Please vote...

I would like to know why is the distributor arking on my Mazda B2200 1992


Hi Gordon:
Distributors are made with a non-conductive shell, a contact point in the centre, and a rotor that directs the spark from the centre ot the spark plug wire terminals. Any number of things can happen to the distributor cap that will create a conductive path or short circuit that will result in arcing.
Some examples:
- not correctly secured
- cracked
- condensation present
- dirty

Car was running really rough like it wanted to cut off while driving through a rainstorm


I'd check the distributor cap (remove it and look for condensation on the inside of the cap) and plug wires (securely mated into the distributor cap and spark plugs). If that's not the problem, post back and we'll go from there.

Engine randomly cut out while driving or idiling,,, sometimes starts right back up other times takes a couple minutes... Cause?????


Hi Steven, I would think of replacing the the points (contact breaker) and condenser (capacitor) Theses are inside the distributor and revealed by removing the distributor cap. Remove the holding clips or screws (I don't remember which) and then lift off the cap and rotor arm. remove the cables connecting to the condenser and points. Remove both points and condenser and replace both and reconnect the electrical cables. Turn the engine by hand until the contact breaker is fully opened by one of the cam lobes on the center shaft and then adjust the gap to point four five millimeters. Rotate the engine again by hand until the points close and then with the ignition turned on but not cranking check you have spark by opening the points with a plastic tool. Once the spark is confirmed turn the engine to the timing marks (Please confirm ignition timing but I believe it is 6 degrees before Top Dead Center. Turn the engine so that the timing marks align at that setting and then set the points by loosening off the distributor body and rotating it so that the points are just about to open but are still closed. Tighten everything up and refit the rotor arm and cap and start the engine. For a more accurate setting of the distributor timing use a strobe timing light after initial start up. Always attend to the ignition timing before attempting any carburetor adjustment. Regards John

Car wont start after it rains


I have had this issue with older mazda GLC cars as well.

The usual cause is water getting into the distributor cap and not allowing contacts to be made to the spark plugs.

Where all the spark plug wires come together, is the distributor cap, unclip the cap and I am betting you will see water and or condensation. Wipe off the cap and rotor and this will hopefully solve the issue. Best bet is to replace the cap and rotor about 30$ total. This will give you a new rubber seat and water should bot make its way in.

Let me know via way of feedback if this solution helps you out.

How to install cap and rotor on a 2000 chevy blazer 4.3ltre v-6


Disconnect the wires and take pictures with cell phone for reference to ensure you don't cross them when reinstalling the new distributor cap. Remove the two torque screws in the distributor cap and remove the distributor cap to access the rotor. Remove the rotor by lifting straight up and inspect the distributor for any condensation and corrosion. Clean the breather screen at the bottom of the distributor before installing the new rotor which just slides back in place. Install the new distributor cap and tighten the new torque screws, make sure you do not over torque the screws since the distributor housing is plastic and prone to stripping. Reattach the spark plug wires and start the engine and idle for 5 min and go for a test drive. Good luck and you may want to also buy spark plug boot lubricant to ensure the spark plug wires are fully installed when placed back on the new distributor cap and recheck connections after test drive. Keep me posted, be glad to know your blazer is running 100% and please rate.

Code 17 on a mazda 626 1992 lx what does it mean


The OBD-1 two digits trouble codes listed 'code-17' as:
Oxygen sensor.

This means that the fuel and ignition systems performance are in need of attention.

1.Distributor Cap: remove the 3-bolts holding the distriboutr to its body.
2. Inspect the distributor cap for cracks, and the roror-button is not worn or broken.
3. Inspect the distributor-cap terminals are not corroded or charred. Replace if charred. Clean them out if corroded.
4. Check the distributor-rotor for cracks or corrosion on its tip, and lesser spring tension.
Replace as necessary.
5. Reverse steps 1-4 to re-install distributor cap. Be sure to remove and replace the plug wires from the old distributor-cap to the new distributor-cap one-by-one. If not, the engine would not run.

Fuel-Filter:
1. Undo the top clips holding the fuel-filter hose, and undo the lower clips also.
2. Take out the fuel-filter from its mount.
3. Replace the fuel filter as necessary.(please not the way it was mounted) Reverse removal for installation.
