The distributor shaft is probably worn to the point it is "wobbling" and causing the rotor to wear prematurely, OR:

If rotor does not fit on shaft TIGHT, then rotor.

I have a 91 Corolla and have only been able to get a tight rotor fit by using a Toyota rotor.
EVERY aftermarket rotor I have tried was loose. A loose rotor would cause premature wear.

Hii amigooo

well I know and I really want to buy the toyota genuine parts but I must say this in these days wao economics problems no 40 hours jobs.

And in puerto rico all genuine parts have high prices
thanks god I found great deals in body genuine mitsubishi parts for my mitsubishi mirage LS 2001

but in toyota ufff very difficult and I think those toyota stores they don't bring too many parts because high cost in old cars. And the people prefer in advance auto and pep boys and auto zone. To buy the replacement parts just to resolve the problem for a while

but I am whit you in Genuine parts but the money is hard to find even if you have a bachelor degree in a university like me is hard to find a job this days

but friend

hey thanks very much I appreciated your help.
