1990 Toyota Camry Q&A

1990 Toyota Camry Question: what is usually wrong with distributor inside? need help.

distributor no spark and engine turning. -
Answer 1
Do you have good spark from ignition coil? Start there and if thats ok check for spark at spark plugs. As you asked the distributor cap gets oxidation buid up on points and rotor. This will cause misfires over time due to the spark traveling to a path of less resistance. -
