Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Randall., Have you done anything other then re seat the plug wire?
ok, thanks, ***** ***** year/engine and design had terrible problems with cracked dist caps or ones that have carbon tracks in which any moist/damp day , spark will jump all over inside of the cap and making starting very difficult and can also cause misfiring, we deal with these caps all the time, My recommend? new cap/rotor at minimum and if budget allows? do wires at same time, I am very confident this will resolve the issue, It is a design of the caps , kind of poor at best but they dont cost much, failry easy to change and all should be just fine, BTW; it lies very close to the under hood , hood seal so when it rains, water can seep to the top of the cap and if cap is in any way comprimised? cracked etc? you will have the exact same problems you mention
sorry , cant remember if phillips screws hold that cap or like 5 mm socket. they vary, nope just remove cap with wires on it, slip rotor off, put new cap on and put wires on exact same posts as the old were, or youcan put tape ont eh wires to mark each of them for location, sprays? well good question and silicone spray inside of cap never hurts, Brand? hard to say, they are all about the same, AC Delco is the factory brand,All the aftermarkets are just fine, keep in mind, the more you pay? when they give you options? probably the better quality
here is a link to a diagram that will help in case you mess up wire locations
