POINTS & CONDENSER REPLACEMENT

What is the points & condenser all about?

In short, the points & condenser inside your distributor cap work to regulate the mixture of air and fuel that is sent to your car’s spark plugs. The spark plugs, in turn, help power the engine. Modern innovations have gone forward with replacing points and condenser with less complex electronic ignitions. However, many older vehicles still operate using the classic system.

 

Let’s put it this way: whenever you start, run, or drive your classic car—that is your points & condenser system hard at work.

DO YOU NEED TO REPLACE YOUR POINTS & CONDENSER?

Symptoms of a bad ignition points and condenser include:

  • Failure to start –  If your car will turn over, but won’t start, this can be a sign of a bad points & condenser system.
  • Misfire or Stalling –  A misfiring or stalling engine is often caused by a poorly functioning points & condenser mechanism.
  • Timing Issues –  Misadjusted timing? It could be your points & condenser. With this problem, you’ll notice a rough, uneven sound when you accelerate—among other issues.
  • Rough Idling –  When your car stops idling with a steady, easy rhythm, the points & condenser are often to blame.

While not all of these issues sound serious, prolonging service could cause more problems in other parts of your vehicle. Plus, if your points and condenser fail completely, you will be immediately unable to drive your vehicle until you get it replaced. If you notice issues like this, contact your auto service provider for help.

HOW REPLACING POINTS & CONDENSER WORKS

While the system itself is very complex, replacing one is actually quite simple. It just requires some know-how and a specific set of tools. When you bring your vehicle in for a points & condenser replacement service, your technician will:

 

Step 1 – Disconnect the negative battery cable (for safety reasons).

 

Step 2 – Locate and remove the distributor cap.

 

Step 3 – Disconnect the points, retaining bolt, and second lead (if applicable).

 

Step 4 – Remove the condenser.

 

Step 5 – Install a new condenser and points.

 

Step 6 – Grease the distributor and adjust the point gap.

 

Step 7 – Reassemble the distributor.

 

Step 8 – Restore power and test functionality.

THE BENEFITS OF POINTS AND CONDENSER REPLACEMENT SERVICE

FUNCTIONALITY

Failing points and condenser can make it difficult to start, idle, and drive your vehicle. Failed points and condenser means that your car isn’t going anywhere until you get it fixed.

SAFETY

Stalling, timing issues, or failure to start may not be serious problems on their own. However, when connected to a points and condenser problem, they could leave you stranded in a dangerous situation.

SAVINGS

By keeping your engine running smoothly, you can prevent additional damage to your vehicle—damage that you will need to pay extra to repair.

HOW TO PREVENT POINTS & CONDENSER ISSUES

If you’re driving your car, you’re going to wear on your points and condenser system. However, there are still a few things you can do to help those parts last as long as possible:

  • Look out for issues in-between inspections and regularly scheduled maintenance.
