    Yea check for CEL's. If the distributor is bad you will have eitehr of these codes...
    4 CKP - Crank Angle Sensor
    8 TDC - Top Dead Center
    9 CYP - Cylinder Pos. Sensor
    15 Ignition Output Signal

    If you have any of these codes you may as well replace the Distributor of have it reubilt.
