my avenger died and would not fire, I changed the spark plug's and wires and distributor cap but forgot to change the rotor. should I take it all back off and change the rotor before I try to start my car?

    I'm not sure if it is firing. Before I try to start it, I am just going to go buy a new rotor and replace it. Hopefully that will work

    Try the timing belt if it snapped it could have bent your rods and pistons causing it not to fire
