Engine Performance problem
1996 Other Nissan Models All Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles

I just replace the module of my distributor (nissan primera 1600cc). But now the engine performance has diminished. There is little acceleration. The contact indicator is also not working. Can someone help me to know the problem.
Thanks

Did you re-time the distributor? I hope you have GA16 or SR20 motor. I don't have info for the other engine variations.

You do have to time SR20. You have to have a timing light to do this procedure. Your timing marks is on the crankshaft pulley.

IGNITION TIMING

1. Start engine and warm to normal operating temperature. Turn ignition off. Disconnect throttle
position sensor harness connector.
2. Start engine. Increase engine speed to 2000 RPM, 2 or 3 times, then allow engine to return to
idle. Engine should be operating smoothly at correct idle RPM.

3. If ignition timing is incorrect, loosen hold-down bolt and turn distributor to adjust ignition
timing. Turn ignition off and connect throttle position sensor harness connector. Recheck
ignition timing.
