Honda Other

Light came on the mechanic said I needed a new distribtor, even though the car runs as smooth as a babys
booty. I ignored the advice and have since driven 100's of miles with no problem. Do you think I was being scammed? I drive an 89 honda lxi with 95,000 miles.

I believe the mechanic made a stab at a diagnosis. The codes that are put out indicate something is wrong. However the codes are not that specific, for instance, if a check engine light comes on and indicates an area of the engine there could be multiple components that could be causing the problem. In fact, the sensor that is sending the problem has an expiration as well. I would investigate the wiring around the distributor and note if the cel is still coming on.
