How to install a distributor for a 1990 Nissan maxima engine?

This is easy. The distributor cap is to the left of the engine if you are facing the radiator. The distributor cap is tightened down by three small bolts. It should come off easily. The rotor is directly beneath this and has a screw holding it in place under the back edge. The rotor is also very easy to replace. Rememember to mark your plug wires as you unhook them from the cap. Then simply connect the wires to the new cap and scre it down. I got a new cap for about $37 at Autozone. Have fun.

To access the rotor, remove the tire and brake caliper. There will be a cap protecting the bolt that holds the rotor onto the spindle. Removing the cap, located in the center of the rotor (on the spindle, not the rotor itself) will allow you to get access to the bolt. Removing that bolt frees the rotor from the spindle.

These cars do not have a cap and rotor. They have direct ignition and they are located on top of the spark plugs. There are no servicable parts except the plugs. These cars do not have a cap and rotor. They have direct ignition and they are located on top of the spark plugs. There are no serviceable parts except the plugs. Of course they have a Cap and Rotor I have recently replaced mine. Before you start you need to move housing for the air filter so you have room to work. There are 2 screws that attach the Cap. Once removed the Cap will come off. The Rotor is located directly under the Cap. Just pull if off and push the new one on. Once new Rotor is installed take your new Cap and put it next to the old Cap. Make sure you install the spark plug wires in the new Cap in the same holes as the old Cap. Install one wire at a time. No need to rush take your time and do it right or the car will not start. Put the 2 screws back in to attach new Cap and your done.
