  • Distributor Cap: Holds the rotor and the wires for the starter. This can wear out or crack and be filled with moisture making it fail.
  • Ignition Signal Sensor: Sends the timing information to the spark plugs and combustion chambers from the computer in the engine. A faulty sensor can result in failure to start.
  • Spark Plugs: Used to create the spark to ignite the fuel. Blown spark plugs can result in a slow start.
