Distributor Cap Replacements
A distributor cap, much like the name suggests, is a plastic part that distributes voltage to spark plugs in the engine. This voltage lights the engine and keeps it running. If the distributor cap stops distributing the voltage correctly, you won’t be able to drive your car very far. We put driver safety first by making sure you don’t leave in a car that puts you or other drivers in danger.

Signals of Distributor Cap Issues
Car Won’t Start
This is a symptom of many different car problems. However, if you are experiencing either of the symptoms below and your car won’t start, your best bet is taking it to a mechanic for a diagnosis.
Check Engine Light
Again, this is a symptom of anything from a malfunctioning EGR valve to a blown head gasket. It’s also, however, a sign that the voltage in your engine isn’t distributed correctly. Always get an inspection to determine the reason for the check engine light on your vehicle.
When the distributor cap malfunctions, your engines cylinders will attempt and fail to fire as normal. This will make a squealing sound. Carbon deposits underneath your distributor cap can keep it from working properly. Replacing the distributor cap should fix the problem
