Jeff is always on Time and is a wealth of knowledge. He performed the repair on time and wasn't shy about me asking too many questions and was willing and able to answer each and every one. This is the third time I have had Jeff do work on my truck and I will not go to a repair facility anymore. Thanks Jeff for a job well done. He inspected the truck, found the issue, had a solution for it and got the parts for the repair, quicker and less expensive than anyone else.
WOW and WOW. I wish I had known about this years ago. Jeffery showed up ahead of schedule and proceeded to evaluate the problem with my S10 as to why it would not turn over. He was extremely through during the procedure and finally found the problem. And all this was done in the pouring rain. Jeffery kept a very positive attitude and is very personable. After he found the problem he got the parts and repaired it quickly. I am so impressed with the service that was provided. With all types of people offering this kind of service the only way to rise above the rest is to provide the best possible customer care that you can and Jeffery did just that and excelled at it. I will spread the word and recommend him and his company to everyone I can. I could not be more pleased. Great service and great pricing. As a retired person, this was extremely helpful with our budget.

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.
