What is Distributor Cap?

I cant find any thread on how to replace it. Should I even replace it? Will it help on my 115,000 miles 00' lude? I dont know the last time it has been changed, but I am about to do a 400 mile road trip.

Re: What is Distributor Cap?

distributor cap is where your wires meet this is where ignition happens its just three screws that hold it down the way you can check it is take the cap off and see if the points on the inside are corroded if they are time for a new cap and rotor. rotor is held with one screw might take a little wiggling to get it off. Just make sure you know where your wires go cause if you mix them up your car wont start or it might run rough
