Ignition Points and Condensers

The distributor points are a small switch that triggers the coil to fire a spark. These often become worn or pitted, and should be replaced every time that you do a tune-up on your car.

Distributor Caps

Distributor caps are usually at the top of the distributor and are where the spark plug wires attach. The caps can become worn out and crack over time. It is a good idea to check your distributor cap when you change your spark plugs. Cap off your ignition solutions with a new distributor cap!
