Distributor Cap and Rotor Replacement Service

What are the Distributor Rotor and Cap all about?

When the engine is running, high voltage created by the ignition coil travels through the coil wire to the ignition rotor. As the ignition rotor turns in the distributor, the rotor distributes the spark by sending it in a synchronized order through the spark plug wires to the spark plug located in each of the engine's cylinders.

The distributor is a main component of the ignition system. It takes very high voltage and delivers it to fire the spark plugs.

Keep in mind:

  • When the distributor rotor and cap are replaced, the entire ignition system should be inspected.
  • After replacing the distributor rotor and cap, the ignition wires will need to be reinstalled.

How it's done:

  • Check the ignition system.
  • Replace the cap and rotor if found faulty.
  • Re-check the ignition system.
  • Check ignition timing if needed.

Our recommendation:

Whenever your vehicle has routine maintenance or servicing, the ignition system should be inspected thoroughly. If you ever notice your ignition system having a hard time (such as your car having trouble turning on or staying on), then you should schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Distributor Rotor and Cap?

  • Engine misfires.
  • Car does not start.
  • Noises from the engine.
  • Check engine light is on.

How important is this service?

The distributor rotor and cap is used when the engine is running. During this time, high voltage is created by the ignition coil, and sent through the coil wire to the ignition rotor. This rotor turns inside the distributor, and as it does so, it evenly distributes sparks to the spark plugs, through the spark plug wires. The spark plugs then use this spark to ignite the fuel mixture, which allows the engine to keep running.

If the distributor rotor and cap malfunction, the voltage from the ignition coil won’t be redistributed to the spark plugs, and your engine will either have a hard time running, or won’t run at all.

Ford F-350 - Exhaust Manifold - Indianapolis, Indiana
Albert was prompt, and above all TENACIOUS. I had a troublesome manifold that needed to be replaced and the process proved to be quite difficult. In my case, the repair required 2 visits from Albert. In the first visit, we learned that the smog system in my truck was preventing the faulty manifold from being removed. This pipe was literally in an impossible to reach spot, eventually preventing the job from being completed in the first visit. This didn't deter Albert from the challenge to get my repair finished. He assisted me in finding the appropriate parts and recommended solutions for me to get the smog pipe separated from the manifold. After visiting another local mechanic with a lift to separate the smog pipe from the manifold, Albert returned to do a complete manifold replacement in just a few short hours. The mechanic was courteous, quick, safe, clean and gave very comprehensive explanations to help me further maintain my truck. If I could, I would give Albert 10 stars, and I will definitely request him specifically for future work with yourmechanic. Thanks a million Albert, they really should double your pay!
