Not necessary to replace the due to the water pump, but u should replace the cap, rotor, wires, and plugs every 60,000 miles or as needer if they are worn. as for your water pump, u should also replace the thermostst and gasket with the pump, and check the belt or belts for wear and replace them as needed

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect


If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

I would definitely try the distributer cap and rotor button. It's about a 15 minute job and might solve your problem. As the car warms up the electrical components of course heat up too. As the heat goes up, resistance also increases in electrical connections, wires, etc. You could be getting enough current to pass between the rotor and the poles at low temps but, as they heat up, sufficient current for a good spark is not being passed along.

What all do i need to change when doing a tune up for a chevy 2005 equniox


Just basically spark plugs and an air filter. The plugs don't need replacement until 100,000 miles. The fuel filter is located inside the fuel pump assembly in the gas tank and is not serviceable. It doesn't require a PCV valve and there are no adjustments available for the throttle body, idle or timing.

Water is getting on your distributer cap..It is located directly under the water pump and getting wet..It comes as a kit (distributer cap,rotary button) and is around $120-$160.. Water pump has to come off to get to it and need to replace it as well when its off or you will just get the new one wet.

How old is the truck? On electronic ignitions these days, water seldom gets in dist. but there is a spray you can get to dry up water, just take dist. cap off and spray then wait a few minutes before replacing cap.

99 S-10 will not start in windy damp weather.


I would change all of it. Spark plug wires will leak under the high voltage w/o any outward signs. Unlikly fuel pump . Not effected by damp weather. If after all that and it still doesn't work, change the coil.

Not starting


The opti-spark distributor cap is below the water pump.
Often a leaking water pump will cause a short in the distributor
Due to the amount of time and labor cost to remove the water pump, and that fact that the water pump has to be removed to replace the distributor cap, it is a good idea to replace the distributor cap at the same time the water pump is replaced. The water pump is driven by a pinion shaft with an " O " ring. Be sure to replace the " O " ring too else you may shortly develop an oil leak at that point.
