Finding the Cause of Distributor Problems Takes an Experienced Technician
A distributor is the “device that sends electricity to the spark plugs of an engine,” according to merriam-webster.com. It has two main parts, the cap and the rotor. The rotor, located in the cap, spins and sends out an electric pulse that goes to the spark plugs.
If the distributor isn’t working properly, the car won’t start or the engine will cut off. But distributors can be sneaky, provoking other symptoms – shaking, high-pitched squealing – that may warn you that your ignition system needs work. The best way to find out if you have a problem with your distributor is to have a trained mechanic experienced in distributor systems, like those at Terry’s Car Care, check out your engine. Then you can head over to the bulk mulch sale today (May 3) at Olbrich Botanical Gardens.
