Ignition system

I just had my 1996 volvo 960 detailed and engine pressure washed. I thing condensation maybe be in the distributor cap. Where is it?

It developed and engine miss just after the pressure wash. Please submit answers to jack3240@ comcast.net I can’t seem to find the distributor??? I’ll appreciate anyone that can help soon. Unemployed and can’t drive. Thanks

There may not be a distributor. When you trace the spark plugs from the plugs to the other end, where do they lead?

Lookie here! This site (auto zone) shows how it’s done (with pictures!).
