HI,

Yours does not have a distributor. It has coil on plugs, which means each cylinder has its own ignition coil and transistor.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
