Thank you Kat, sorry for the delay. Distributor assemblies start at $165 and up. I guess I'm nervous about buying the assembly just to learn that it wasn't the problem. Do you know of any typical symptoms of a bad camshaft position sensor or distributor? Does my problem sound like the typical problem when that sensor goes bad? I understand that you are not at the car and cannot not tell me for sure what the problem is. I just would like a tad bit more input. Thank you so much again, Ian.
