Previa Dist.CapSorry, but you don't. The Toyota Previa has an internalized distributor cap/rotar located under the console on the driver's side. Unless you are a certified Toyota Mechanic, it's basically impossible to change/clean/whatever.

Actually... the dist. and cap is under the pass. seat and is mounted on the end of the cyl. head. It is replaceable.


Wrong Answer!

The Previa's Dist. is under the engine, facing to the rear of the van. The Cap & rotor are replaceable.

The dist. is easy to remove if you have enough room to get under the van.

Also, the dist. SHAFT oil seal goes out regular on all Previa's. Ck. this

1st. as it is the most prevalent oil leak for Previa's.

The 2nd most prevalent oil leak for these van's is from the valve cover not reinstalled correctly after removed for any reason. Make sure to use Sealant in the correct spots.

See any Haynes repair manuel. (I detest Chiltons repair-no-help manuel.

There is probably a leaky connector seal somewhere or possibly a little water gets in the distributor, provided that your cavalier is old enough to have a distributor. Check the connectors, especially around the ignition distribution. You can seal connectors with a little silicon grease, but if there is any damage, just replace the part.

How do you fix a distributor oil leak on a 1990 Honda Accord?

AnswerBefore you go too far assuming the distributor is at fault, start the engine and remove the oil fill cap.If you get a lot of air coming out, it may be what's called "blow by". That is often the result of not changing the oil on schedule. The rings become trapped in oil "sludge" and end up failing to provide an adequate seal. When that happens, combustion gasses leak past the cylinders and into the crankcase. The combustion gasses can end up creating enough pressure that it pushes oil vapor out any opening, including the distributor shaft or the rear main seal. Without that blowby pressure, the oil will not be able to make it up that distributor shaft and leak out.IF you found oil inside the distributor most likely it coming from the seal on the shaft of the distributor. To fix this problem you will have to replace the distributor sub assy.
