How to remove distributor on 1994 nissan pathfinder


Hi there:
Check this removal procedure (See Figures 1 through 5)

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unfasten the retaining clips (only remove the coil wire if necessary) and lift the distributor cap straight off. It will be easier to install the distributor if the spark plug wiring is left connected to the cap. If the plug wires must be removed from the cap, mark their positions to aid in installation.
  3. Remove the dust cover and mark the position of the rotor relative to the distributor body; then mark the position of the distributor body relative to the engine block.
  4. Detach the harness assembly connector.
  5. Remove the pinch-bolt and lift the distributor straight out, away from the engine. The rotor and body are marked so that they can be returned to the position from which they were removed. Do not turn or disturb the engine (unless absolutely necessary) after the distributor assembly has been removed.

After the distributor assembly has been installed, the rotor should be in this position-VG30i and VG30E engines


6_26_2012_2_16_40_pm.jpg

After the distributor assembly has been installed, the rotor should be in this position-KA24E engine



INSTALLATIONTiming Not Disturbed

  1. Insert the distributor in the block and align ALL matchmarks made during removal.
  2. Engage the distributor driven gear with the distributor drive.
  3. Install the distributor clamp and secure it with the pinch-bolt.
  4. Install the distributor cap and fasten the harness electrical connector.
  5. If necessary, install the spark plug wires and coil wire.
  6. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.

Timing Disturbed
  1. It is necessary to place the No. 1 cylinder in the firing position to correctly install the distributor. To locate this position, the ignition timing marks on the crankshaft front pulley can be used.
  2. Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the crankshaft until the piston in the No. 1 cylinder is moving up on the compression stroke. This can be determined by placing your thumb over the spark plug hole and feeling the air being forced out of the cylinder. Stop turning the crankshaft when the timing marks indicate TDC or 0 .
  3. Oil the distributor housing lightly where the distributor bears on the cylinder block.
  4. Install the distributor so that the rotor, which is mounted on the shaft, points toward the No. 1 spark plug terminal tower position when the cap is installed. Of course, you won't be able to see the direction in which the rotor is pointing if the cap is installed, so lay the cap on the top of the distributor and make a mark on the side of the distributor housing just below the No. 1 spark plug terminal. Make sure that the rotor points toward that mark when you install the distributor.

On the VG30i and VG30E engines, align the mark on the distributor shaft with the protruding mark on the housing.

  1. When the distributor shaft has reached the bottom of the hole, gently move the rotor back and forth slightly until the driving lug on the end of the shaft enter the slots cut in the end of the oil pump shaft and the distributor assembly slides down into place.

On the VG30i and VG30E engines, the distributor rotor tip should be in the 11 o'clock position.

  1. Fasten the distributor hold-down bolt.
  2. Install the spark plug into the No. 1 spark plug hole.
  3. Install the distributor cap and engage the harness electrical connector.
  4. If necessary, attach the spark plug wires and coil wire.
  5. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.





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

Firing order for a 1986 gmc s15


FIRING ORDERS

To avoid confusion, ALWAYS replace spark plug wires one at a time.

The most important thing to remember about the removal and installation of a distributor, cap or spark plug cable is that all wires MUST be labelled before they are disconnected. Keep in mind that these figures depict a firing order where the distributor cap terminals are relative to EACH OTHER only and they do not necessarily depict the tower positions in relation to the rest of the engine. This is true because any distributor which has been removed and reinstalled may have been installed with the No. 1 spark plug tower at any position (360 degrees) in relation to the rest of the motor, as long as the rotor aligned to the No. 1 tower when the No. 1 cylinder was at TDC of the compression stroke (valves closed, ready for the plug to fire). As long as the remaining wires were connected in the correct firing order sequence (depending on direction of distributor rotation) the engine will run. DO NOT EVER remove more than one wire from the distributor cap at a time unless you tag ALL wires and towers to assure proper installation.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the primary lead from the terminal post at the side of the distributor.

The wire connector will contain a special conductive grease. Do not remove it. The same grease will also be found on the metal parts of the rotor.
  1. Disconnect the vacuum line if there is one.
  2. Remove the two distributor cap retaining hooks or screws and remove the distributor cap.
  3. Note the position of the rotor in relation to the base. Scribe a mark on the base of the distributor and on the engine block to facilitate reinstallation. Align the marks with the direction the metal tip of the rotor is pointing.
  4. Remove the bolt that holds the distributor to the engine.
  5. Lift the distributor assembly from the engine.

To install, if engine was not disturbed:
  1. Insert the distributor shaft and assembly into the engine. Line up the mark on the distributor and the one on the engine with the metal tip of the rotor. Make sure that the vacuum advance diaphragm is pointed in the same direction as it was pointed originally. This will be done automatically if the marks on the engine and the distributor are line up with the rotor.
  2. Install the distributor hold-down bolt and clamp. Leave the screw loose enough so that you can move the distributor with heavy hand pressure.
  3. Connect the primary wire to the distributor side of the coil. Install the distributor cap on the distributor housing. Secure the distributor cap with the spring clips or the screw type retainers, whichever is used.
  4. Install the spark plug wires. Make sure that the wires are pressed all of the way into the top of the distributor cap and firmly onto the spark plugs.

If the engine was turned while the distributor was removed, or if the marks were not drawn, it will be necessary to initially time the engine. Follow the procedure below.
To install, if engine was disturbed:
  1. Rotate the engine until the No.1 piston is at TDC compression.
  2. Using a flat bladed screwdriver, in the distributor hole, rotate the oil pump gear so that the slot in the oil pump shaft is slightly past the 3:00 o'clock position, relative to the length of the engine block.
  3. With the distributor cap removed, install the distributor with the rotor at the 5:00 o'clock position, relative to the oil pump gear shaft slot. When the distributor is completely in place, the rotor should be at the 6:00 o'clock position. If not, remove the distributor and perform the entire procedure again.
  4. Tighten the lockbolt.



Remember rated this post; I hope help you with this.
