You will need:
new dist cap
I chose oem toyota replacement parts
Approx cost: $40
Approx time: 15-30min
1. First off remove all the spark plug wires from the distributor cap.
A. No need to mark them seeing as how the distributor cap and the wires should be numbered. (Verify this before disconnecting wires. Mark with tape/marker if they are not.)B. You may need to unhook the one vacuum hose to give you some more room.
7. Reassembly is pretty much self explanatory, just reverse the process. Wipe off any oil or dirt before putting it back together.
A. If there is a bunch of oil, chances are you need to replace the seals in your distributor which is a whole differant deal.
After replacing my cap and rotor I noticed better idle and acceleration immediately. I was delightfuly surprised and happy with the result.
