I would not recommend changing anything until the part has been confirmed to be faulty.
DTC was stored but was the CEL showing?
DTC # 6 = Engine Coolant Temperature sensor.
Check the wires and connectors to see if they are properly installed.
Warm up engine to operating temperature, until cooling fans comes on and turn ignition switch off.
Disconnect ECT wire socket and measure the resistance across the 2 ECT terminals. Reading should be between 200 to 400 ohms and if not within range, ECT is faulty.
Btw, am curious about the spring in the distributor. I can't recall the distributor being equipped with any springs.
