Default Rotor and Distributor

I hear about replacing spark plug and wires, but what about the rotor and distributor cap?

Are those not big worries? like does it not matter if u replace them or not.

And wat brands, if any, do you guys recommend? And do they have to match to the plug. Or the rotor and the cap be the same.

i but my rotor and cap from autozone at the end of last year and had a shop put those on for $21 or so. but, i think next time i will go with the oem (honda) parts. good luck to you. cap and rotor can last significantly longer now than in the old days. i prefer changing my plugs more often compared to my cap and rotor, but they are definitely important!

You had a shop do your cap and rotor? Dude all you needed was a philips head screwdriver and 15min max to do it yourself.

Changing your plugs more often? YOu shouldn't even have to worry about those but once every 100k miles, and even then all you need to do is check to see if you get voltage leaks.

Im goin on 130k miles, and im sure they have never been changed, so why not just change it and be sure.

Plus, hopefully, i will get better gas effiecency(sp).

plugs are something that can affect gas mileage and driveability in my opinion. and, oh yeah my car says to replace the plugs every 30k shadow. yeah, i am lazy BlkCurrantKord so i didn't feel like doing it.
