Re: Mileage from new plug wire, possibly distributor?
I have changed spark plugs, wires, cap/rotor before. They are very easy to do and is a good idea to do for routine maintenance. On the other hand, when installing a cap/rotor, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. This happend to me, and driving home from Indiana to the northern suburbs of chicago, i broke down and couldn't get the truck to turn on again. It was due to the over tightening of the cap/rotor, which then malfunctioned the distributor itself. Would have been $700 from dealer, but with extended warranty it was 100 plus the towing fee which i got some of the money back.
