Ignition distributors provide the main path for the current within an ignition system to pass between the ignition coil and the spark plugs. If you need to replace your ignition distributor, simply enter your registration number in the tool above.
Due to the fact that there are multiple cylinders in need of electrical current, the distributor performs a rotating movement via a rotor, which sits inside the distributor cap, to efficiently reach all touch points, or posts. The rotor is connected to the main ignition coil and takes its charge through to the dedicated post for each cylinder.
All of these components, including the spark plugs outside the ignition distributor, endure heavy use and can often wear out quickly, so it is important to frequently check on their health and replace each part if they are showing signs of deterioration.
