Hi....

Just a question:

What are the signs and symptoms of a bad (or worn out) Distributor Cap/Rotor?

Thank you.

Usually on a 300E, they will not start. Or will die at will.

Thanks for your replys.

Is it possible that a bad/worn out cap/rotor may cause a loss in performance (e.g. slow pick-ups/acceleration)?

Also, how do I check if my cap/rotor are ok or in bad shape?

Thanks.
