Hesitation or No Start Due to Internal Distributor Fault on Toyota Celica

The ignition coil inside the distributor may fail. Our technicians tell us this may result in a hesitation on acceleration, especially when the vehicle is warming up on cold, rainy days. The pickup coils inside the distributor can also fail and cause a no-start condition. There have also been some failures of the radio noise suppressors inside the distributors, which can short out. Our technicians recommend replacing the whole distributor with a complete, genuine Toyota distributor if any of its components fail.

Distributor had been replaced with a rebuilt unit, and it failed after just a few months—engine would not start. Internal wiring was bad. Once distributor was replaced (again!), the car started right up and has been fine since.
