Distributor Cap & Rotor Replacement
Why you need an distributor cap and rotor replacement
Is your car struggling to start, misfiring or not starting at all? You’re probably in need of a new distributor cap and rotor. A bad distributor can prevent your ignition from firing correctly, which can prevent your car from starting. Often, vehicles will show symptoms of a failing distributor cap and rotor before they actually die. This indicates that your ignition coil isn’t getting enough spark and usually requires a distributor cap and rotor replacement to get it running smoothly again.
Your distributor cap is the main point of connection for all your spark plug wires. It acts as a “distribution hub” to distribute the spark from the engine and power from the battery to each engine cylinder via the spark plug wires. Once the electricity has been transferred into the distributor cap, it shoots sparks through each of the spark plug wires towards each individual spark plug and ignites each engine cylinder.
