NO NO, not the answer i was looking for, anyone else i'm hoping its just the cap and rotor cap, i'm going to replace those tomorrow from honda, hopefully thats it. any way i could rebuild it? also could this be whats causing the bogging on my car?
so i sent to the bottem of this thread, and i have the SAME EXACT PROBLEM even the same CEL light. but is there a way to just change the bearing or open it up and clean/grease it back up? the distributor is kinda new so i'm looking for alternative instead of replaceing
yes, i took it apart today, and it was messy, tons of filings. Anyone read those Ebay distributors? they say the bearings and stuff are better then oem, so i'm thinking about going with one of those instead of a used oem one. What do you guys think ?
i might be a little late helping you but maybe sum one could help me it sounds like what happened and is happening to me. my car was making weird noises idling weird and the check engine light only came on once. that it was a starter at first do to the sound making it seem like it was still trying to crank over but i looked at the distributor and took the cap off and behind the rotor is a plastic protective housing i dont think its suppose to be free floating and moving around. plade with it and everything stopped. it might be that housing rubbing on ur rotor look at that housing behind the rotor and see if its moving around and the rotors rubing on it.
