Distributor neglect is one of the most common neglected maintenance items that we see on the 6 cylinder 103 engine. Just because the engine is running ok does not mean that the parts are not worn out. One day you will get up in the morning and the engine will not start. You worse yet, you will be driving along and the engine will just quit on you at a stop light! Want to see a good example? Check out Kent's Youtube video series in the link below. You will find this is something you can do yourself and save a lot of money!

Here is what can happen when you ignore your cap and rotor. This 190E would just quit unexpectantly when driving down the road. Once it cooled down it would start up again... Why???? take a look...
