1995 Honda Prelude 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles
Recently my sons Honda Prelude started running rough and cutting out while idling. Removing the distributor cap showed that the screw holding the rotor on had broken off flush with the shaft and the rotor was loose. I drilled the screw and used an "easy-out" to remove it. When we replace the distributor cap and rotor (with new ones) and started the car, the engine would barely run and was making loud knocking noises. I have removed the valve covers to check the rockers, valve adjustment and timing belt, and all seems well. I also removed the distributor, but could not see any evidence of a problem. Can you give me some idea of what to check for next? Could the distributor be bad? Is there any what to check it?
have the same problem?
