Do you have a CEL on?

Have you scanned for codes?

OBD2 scanners are very inexpensive and code readers only even less.

did YOU or some tech replace distributor ? what distributor used [who made it ? ]


if you did the work how did the old dist look any arcing water / oil damage ? any seals replaced ? did you replace the coil and ICM ?



to help you must reveal what parts were changed and how the work was done and other component info when this work is done..



miss fires can be fuel pressure low...................need to measure it .


so who did all this work on engine ?

so you did the work ???

what are the miss fire codes or other codes ??? when YOU replaced the distributor did YOU measure the plug wire resistance ???

if you have headers then the plug wires may be burned up on that side ....
