DO YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE WHOLE DISRIBUTOR IF YOU HAVE NO SPARK. MY DAUGHTERS CAR DIED WHILE SHE WAS ON THE FREEWAY. YOU CAN NOT START IT, IT TURNS OVER BUT WILL NOT START. HER EXBOYFRIEND SAID THERE IS NO SPARK FROM THE DISTRIBUTOR AND SHE NEEDS TO REPLACE THE WHOLE THING. THIS COST ME 297.00! IS THIS COMMON FOR THIS YEAR OF CAR. I HEARD YOU RARLEY HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE THING.
have the same problem?

It's very common to have to replace the full assembly.
However, it's most likely just a failed ignition coil and ICM, which you can replace individually. You have to diagnose these items however.

THANKS, HE REPLACED THE WHOLE UNIT AND THE CAR IS RUNNING NOW. YAHOO! I JUST THINK IT WAS FASTER FOR HIM TO DO THAT RATHER THAN PROBLEM SOLVE.
AGAIN THANKS FOR THE RESPONSE
ENJOY YOUR WEEK!
