Your vehicle seems quite simple: it takes you to work, the store, or wherever you need to go. But of course it is nowhere near that simple, because it uses hundreds of parts, and they all play their role in a complex process that causes the wheels to start turning. One of the most difficult things is fuel ignition, and it does this with an ignition system. Central to this system is the ignition distributor, which is extremely important and you want it to be working at 100%.

    Featured Brands

    The ignition distributor is integral to your ignition system as it effectively determines how the cylinders 'fire,' which causes fuel to be burnt and wheels to turn. It routes the current from the ignition coil to each spark plug, and this is what causes the cylinders to operate in the right order so your engine runs smoothly. Of course, this is what happens when the distributor is working properly, but things change when it begins to fail, or when it breaks completely.

    When it does fail, you will need to replace it which means you need to know how to find it. It can usually be found beside the engine, and is a round object, made of metal, with a 'cap' at the top and a rod underneath, although this rod is sometimes not visible. It contains a rotor inside the cap, as well as a number of contacts that send the signal to their respective spark plug every time the rotor spins past them. Older distributors will often have another cap at the bottom, which is used to 'break' the connection.

    When you find it, you will see how many things are able to go wrong and why it will eventually need to be replaced if you own the vehicle long enough. Because it is in close contact with your engine, it gets hot and is constantly vibrating, which can cause issues with the contacts inside the cap. It has spark plug wires inside it, which can wear out over time, and the cap and rotor themselves will wear out over time. You may even find that the wires running to the top of the distributor will fail, as will the plugs connecting them to the distributor.

    When any of these parts fail, the problems will be immediate and you will notice them as soon as they occur. Because the distributor controls the way the cylinders fire, the symptoms will happen because the cylinders will not be firing in the right order, or they may not fire at all. Such symptoms will include a hesitation when you accelerate, a rough idle because a cylinder is not operating, or even the engine failing to start because the required signal is not being sent and the spark plugs are not able to burn the fuel. This shows why maintenance is important, and why you will want to replace a broken distributor.

    Have Not Installed Yet
    These parts seem like quality parts. The installation for these is a fairly big job that I haven't got to yet so I can't report on performance. They were reasonably priced and arrived quickly.
