The question concerned my car, not me. Check on the retail price of
distributor before you show your belligerence. I'm not too good to pay
retail when the little guy is trying to scrap a living, assuming its an
Fair enough, but a distributor costs *NOWHERE NEAR* a thousand dollars. I
honestly don't know if you're being serious here, or what. I don't
actually know what it does cost, but I would be VERY surprised if it's
"Ubuntu" -- an African word, meaning "Slackware is too hard for me".
Over 600 retail or about $350 taiwanese knock-off. And, it's buried under
everthing, plugs, wires, oil change. I just wonder how it could happen w/o
warning. There was absolutely none. It started right up, I set off down a
county road at a nice clip and it spit once or twice and quit. Tried to
restart it, it sparked once and not again since. No sluggish driving, no
sputtering starts, it just plain quit doing about 55 mph.
The distributor module is electronic, when it goes out....it shuts down like
a switch. no advance warning. The complete distributor from the dealer is
around $1400.00 and does not include diagnosis or installation. There are
alot of aftermarket ones that I have seen owners install on their vehicles
that have not lasted long at all.
