[off-topic : distributor for non vtec]

hmm....
need some help...
my civic distributor kong'ed today :( [1.6 non vtec, me516-, efi ]
the AAM technician test that the power is only up to distributor coil, from there to spark plug, no power...
tow my ride to Honda SC.. they quote rm1.9k for a new one...

guys, got any idea what actually might be the problem?
how much a new one actually cost, or 2nd hand in chop shop?
any alternatives to fit in other model distributor?

help~ ;__;

like hattech said.. it's repairable depending on damage. Go that route if budget concerns abound!

possibly the rotor or contacts worn already.. thus no contact = no spark.

Dunno for sure, since you didn't post pictures.

yeah, i forgot to snap pics...
but i do remember that the mechanic did sand-paper the contacts
since the car is already there, the option i have left are searching for cheap replacement or resort to their 1.9k..

in garage sale, theres someone letting go carparts for SO4 non-vtec engine, can fit?

e-jump, have you tried chop shops yet? Might as well get one from them, better than forking out 1.9k... :X-:

if it s not the coil, it might be the main relay(fuel relay)...but i think the component in the distributor that looks like a square, thin, i dont know what its called...the best solution is look for the distributor
