My car started skipping on cylinders 1 and 4 so I replaced the plugs and wires. It made no difference. When I removed the plugs they were wet with gas, even though the spark seems very strong. Assuming I had leaking injectors, I paid big bucks to have the injectors replaced. It made no difference. It’s still skipping. The mechanic wants to try replacing the distributor. That ain’t cheap either, and I’ve already spent more than the car is worth. The mechanic still has the car, but it seems like he’s baffled. He’s had it going on two weeks now. Should I let him replace the distributor? What else could it be?
1992 Mercury Capri XR2.
