Three-Step Replacement of a Worn-Out Distributor Cap Gasket

Your car's distributor is tasked to distribute the high voltage from the coil to the spark plugs. It is also one of the components prone to wearing out due to its function. What protects it from premature wear is the distributor cap, which is supported by a gasket (or cap seal) to ensure that there is no moisture or leaks even under compression. Though the gasket may be a minute part of the distributor, it could be a reason for your car to experience a problem in starting or vibrations when it wears out. Here's how you can replace your distributor cap gasket the easy way:

Difficulty level: Easy

Tools that you'll need:

  • Clean cloth
  • Silicone sealant
  • Screwdriver set
  • Replacement distributor cap gasket

Step 1: Be sure to work on your vehicle only after the engine has cooled down. Open your hood and locate the distributor. It is above the radiator and just below the air filter. Remove the distributor cap and wipe the dirt off. Also, check the cap for cracks. You may want to replace them as well.

Step 2: Detach the old gasket and install the replacement in the cap. We suggest that you put a thin bead of silicone sealant on the cap's edges before returning it to ensure that there will be no moisture or dirt build-up inside. You may choose to discard or keep the old gasket.

Step 3: Next, replace the cap and tighten the screws firmly. Close the hood and prepare for test-drive.

In just three easy steps, you will no longer experience unnecessary and annoying shakes and squeals due to a worn-out distributor cap gasket. After less than an hour of DIY replacement, your distributor can now perform at its best.
