Keep Your Jeep’s Ignition System Healthy
A distributor cap is a crucial part of your Jeep’s ignition system which helps it start. It’s a detachable component used to spark the ignition system to cover the rotor and distributor. The distributor cap protects these two parts from contamination and sends electricity from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. This way, the spark plugs are activated in the correct firing order.
Every distributor cap shares a basic set of components: the main housing, at least one contact per cylinder, and the main contact point. Together, they spark the ignition system. Two main factors can lead to distributor cap failure: contamination and wear-and-tear. A contaminated cap can affect the level of high voltage pulses that enter the spark plugs. In most cases, however, distributor caps simply wear out.
Excessive or unusual engine noises are also potential red flags, and they’re caused by cylinders that fail to fire. Another thing to watch out for would be the Check Engine light indicating signal distributor cap failure.
