If you operate a vehicle requiring a CDL, if you operate a Commercial Motor Vehicle of 10,001 - 26,000 lbs. GVWR across state lanes, or if you operate a vehicle which would normally require a CDL, but is operated under an exemption (farm vehicles, emergency vehicles, RVs).

If that vehicle has the 2.2L engine, it doesn't have a distributor.

The distributor gear might wear out in an older vehicle that has high mileage, just because of wear and tear on the parts. A newer vehicle with less than 70,000 miles should not have the distributor gear wearing out. If this is the case, an electrical problem could have caused this to malfunction.

It is on the back of the intake manifold just in front of the distributor. If it is a HEI vehicle it will be in the center of the distributor cap. (distributor cap will look larger than normal)

the ht leads may not be nubered but the longest should be used for the furthest away sparkplug. if you need to fit them to the distributor cap, find the firing sequence of the vehicle, find when pison 1 is in top dead centre, then work from piston 1 on the distributor round in the order that the rotor turns, normally clockwise

Assuming you have an older vehicle with points, the wire from the distributor goes to the neg side of the coil.

No. You can only get car insurance if their is actual a vehicle to insure.

No. To be exempt from CMV requirements and regulations, the vehicle must be registered as a recreational vehicle.

If the distributor has failed, the vehicle will probably not run. If the distributor is failing, the only way to really test this is by replacement, since it requires special equipment to test a distributor.
