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.

    I would notice sometimes when I would crank the car it would somewhat stall on me. It started not wanting to accelerate when I hit the gas. I ended up having the entire distributor changed out after finding out it wasn't the battery, starter, or alternator. I haven't had any problems since.
