Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.
Does it have the 2.8L engine? External coil?
Yes. that is a blown up magnetic pole piece in the distributor and the distributor would have to be replaced. I had that happen on my Buick with the 2.8 engine as well as a few others over the years. Seems to just happen from age on them.
