Car won't turn over and I replaced the distributor twice in one week. They will work for a day or two then they go out. I replaced the spark plugs. I will be replacing the wires tomorrow. Could it be anything else? I also replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter. I don't know what else it could be. Please help!

    My mechanic gets them from a guy, he didn't tell me who or if it was from a parts store. He said that he hasn't had a problem with this guy's distributors before and that if this one goes bad it must be because of something else.

    then tell you mech to figure it out,thats what your paying him for. sometimes a new one is only slightly higher than a r/b one.
