replace distributor two times still check engine light comes on and now i have a tapping sound whta could it be? the timing chain
engine misfire,car stalled,no restart,drive gear on plastic housed distributor stripped,new 1 year warrantee distributor installed,now oil pressure low when car gets warm,(85000 miles)
screw on one side of distributor pulled out, causing it to not be seated flat. This caused misfires and had to be taken into the shop. The cap also had to be replaced.
Bucking and stalling after engine warms up to typical operating temperature. Poor drivability. Unusual smelling exhaust. Multiple codes stored in ECM reflecting emissions issues. Timing retarded 12 degrees. Found gear on distributor had excessive wear (sharp edges on teeth)
