Hi, welcome to JA. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't knowyour skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand thatI can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace arepair shop.My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return formy time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know youdidn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.
The stator inside the distributor is usually the cause of this. It's not easy to replace, most just replace the complete distributor. Be sure to mark the rotor when you pull it out.
