The vehicle in question (not mine) had never so much as had a tune up with 130k on the clock. It's called preventative maintenance. Cylinders 2, 4 & 6 were not firing correctly in the first place. A new distributor fixed that problem. The intake manifold gaskets commonly leak and the knock sensors are garbage as well. These engines are junk when new in particular the emissions and ignition systems.
If I was throwing parts at it I would have replaced O2 sensors, a mass air flow meter and a TPS sensor as well. 99% of "techs" would have been lost anyway, there was NO CEL and all of you guys need an OBD code to fix anything at the stealership.
