distributor and cap problem
I replaced them on the 300TE a few weeks ago. Everything was fine until today the car started to lose power and backfire. I pulled over and noise was coming from that area when I pull on the throttle cable, as if something was loose in there.
I had the wagon towed home and I will work on it sometime this evening after I come back from work. Do I need to pay attention to anything special? Is there something that most people miss when they install rotor and caps? could I have something already bent or damaged that's causing the problem?
Anyway, I am off driving my wife's Honda back to work...
