my 92 accord starting making a rubbing kind of sound under the hood. I
think I narrowed it down to the distributor. Took the cap off and
discovered the rotor was kind of sloppy fitting. Assumed it was worn and
replaced it and the cap. The new rotor also has some slop in it. I don't
ever remember it fitting that loosely. Any thoughts? I can literally
wobble it back and forth a 1/4 inch on the shaft. Did my distributor shaft
No, shaft is solid. Yes, it is aftermarket. Having my wife go to the
dealer today to get one. I thought I saw at some point over the years that
there were 2 different distributors. Guessing maybe I got the rotor for the
one I don't have and the shaft is smaller. I'll let you know what I find
out tonight with an OEM one. Thanks for the reply!
Was the aftermarket Rotor ... What a difference in rotors too!
It is still making a whining noise but not constantly. I am pretty sure it
is coming from the distributor. Could it be distributor bearings? Accord
has 254K miles on it.
Aftermarket sucks. Only use OEM for ignition components.
How loud is the whining noise? These do have a history of bearing failure.
Remove the rotor (and leak cover under that) once more and look for red
