  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Remove the distributor cap.
  4.  
  5. Remove the black/yellow and white/black wires from the terminals marked A (+) and B (-).
  6.  

Resistance will vary with coil temperature; therefore all specification were taken at an ambient temperature of 68°F (20°C)

  1. Measure the resistance between both terminals using an ohmmeter and compare with the following specifications:
  2.  
  3. The primary winding resistance for the Hitachi distributor should be 0.45-0.55 ohms. The secondary winding resistance should be 22.4-33.6 ohms.
  4.  
  5. The primary winding resistance for the TEC distributor should be 0.63-0.77 ohms. The secondary winding resistance should be 12.8-19.2 ohms.
  6.  

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) idle memory must be reset after reconnecting the battery. Start the engine and hold it at 3000 rpm until the cooling fan comes on. Then allow the engine to idle for about five minutes with all accessories OFF and with the transmission in Park or Neutral.

  1. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.
