Chevrolet K1500 Replacement Distributor Information


Your Chevy K1500's distributor relays electrical power from your vehicle's coil to the cylinders of your internal combustion engine. Most new cars don't use distributors anymore, relying instead upon distributor less ignition systems. More often than not, it's the distributor's cap that goes bad when it becomes caked with grease. Distributor caps often break in cars that are kept outside in cold temperatures because the heat that accompanies the ignition process can shatter cold plastic. When your Chevy K1500's distributor isn't operating effectively, your car will begin to shake because your engine's timing and firing processes aren't operating efficiently. This shaking can manifest as anything from a low vibration to a violent jerking motion. You may also have a very hard time starting your vehicle. You can buy a replacement distributor for your Chevy K1500 at PartsGeek.com.

Research on Distributor for Chevrolet K1500

The Chevrolet K1500 distributor is a component of the ignition system which accurately transmits the required electrical energy required for the spark plugs to the fire.

The wear and tear of the distributor is caused by the high voltage and the spinning rotor cap. Though replacing it is not as expensive as some of the other automotive repairs. Finding good quality parts for great deals online can help you save some money.

How Does a Car Distributor Work?

The electric current enters the distributor via the ignition coil. A breaker switch regulated the opening and closing of the primary circuit of the coil, and a rotating arm atop the shaft that is driver by a camshaft gear. The distributor shaft connects directly with the camshaft in case of the overhead cam engines. There is a metal piece in the rotor that comes in contact with a high voltage cable which directs the current from the ignition coil. This coil spins in order to transmit every output contact that connects to the sparks through the high-tension leads. Electric current jumps the tiny gaps between the arm and the contacts. All the internal parts of this system are covered by a distributor cap. The distributor cap has a post for each cylinder and allows the electric current to reach each spark plug timely.
