Ford Tempo, 1993, 2.3 liter 4 cyl.
Problem: Whining noise originating from distributor.
Solution: Purchased new distributor from Ford Dealer
Is this appropriate for an individual without much experience to replace? My mechanic wants to charge $100.00, should I choose mechanic on DIY? I have some basic tools unable to check timing.
1-Disconect battery cable
2-Remove distributor rotor and cap, disconnect ICM cable
3-Note position of distributor.
4-Remove distributor hold down bolt
5-Pull distributor out. (any hints to avoid trouble)
6-Remove ICM module, do you recommend buying a new ICM module? ICM module has known issues. (AIRTEX / WELLS Part # *****)
7-Install ICM module into new distributor (any hints or suggestions)
8-Insert distributor into engine
noting position when old distributor was removed, could be slightly off, if the same distributor were re-installed easier to determine position.
9-Install bolt down clamp, assemble rest of stuff (rotor cap etc)
