How to Replace a Distributor Cap in Toyota?


Its a plastic cap and and on its top the sparks wires get connected.A small plastic rotor spins inside the distributor cap, firing each spark plug as it rotates. If the distributor gets faulty there the engine may not perform well. in most cases it has been noticed that only replacing the cap does not helps but with cap the rotors also need to be replaced. The procedure is as follows:--- 1) First of all disconnect the negative battery terminal. 2) Then remove the spark-plug wires . Note:-- Before removing the spark plug wires please note down how and where the wires are connected,then only remove the connections. 3) Then on the distributor there will be a cap.remove that cap.the cap is connected by two pins.you will have to press the pins from each side to loosen the distributor cap.Then lift the distributor cap from the top. 4)Then remove the rotor From distributor The rotor is fitted with two screws.Remove the screws and loosen the rotor. 5) Then lift the rotor out from its shaft. 6) To install new rotor and cap.reverse the procedure. This will help.Thanks.

Why does distributor cap constantly need to be replaced?


Distributor bushings wear out causing play and motion to wear out caps.

Is it hard to change distributor on 2000 nissan pathfinder


Hi there;This is for a 2000 Nissan Truck Pathfinder 4WD 3.3L SFI 6cyl


Distributor Cap & Rotor - Removal & Installation


NOTE
The 1996-00 3.3L engines were equipped with a distributor.


Disconnect the negative battery cable.
If the distributor cap is to be replaced, mark the ignition wires for identification and remove them from the distributor cap.
Remove any components necessary to access the distributor cap.
Completely loosen the distributor cap mounting fasteners.
Carefully remove the distributor cap, taking care not to damage the cap seal or rotor, then position the cap aside.
If necessary, remove the rotor retainer.
Carefully lift the rotor off the distributor shaft.
NOTE
Inspect the distributor cap to housing seal for damage and/or cracks. Replace if cracks are detected.




To install:


Install the rotor onto the distributor shaft and tighten the rotor mounting fastener, if equipped.
Position the distributor cap seal on the distributor housing, then position the distributor cap on the housing.
Install the distributor cap by tightening the mounting fasteners in a crisscross pattern. Use care to not over-tighten the fasteners.
Reconnect the spark plug wires, making sure to install them exactly in the same position from which they were removed.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Ford festiva 1991, it jerks a lot while driving. specially wen it drive after 4-6hr


most likely its your distributor cap. if its old it means its worn out and water will get into the cap and cross wires, which makes one of the spark plugs skip. replace your distributor cap and rotor.
