My car is at the repair shop since two days..

My car really hesitate during acceleration like if only 3/6 cylinder was running, and the motor sometimes give bad vibration. Also, I need to always stay on the gas pedal because it die if I goes down 1000rpm.

They changed all spark plug wire, all spark plug, (NGK), they tryed another distributor cap but this doesn't help anything.

After doing some search and reading some thread, I may think that this is the distributor that is gone. Also the car give an error code (check engine), the garage are waiting for someone to read the code. IF it's the distributor, I'll get it for free since I have a 1 year warrenty on the car (I just bought it a month ago).
Any other suggestion?

I find it annoying because 2-3 days before the car was running really perfect, I just got a new clutch a weak ago..

Thanks, J-F.

If the timing belt went on you then the part that would make it skip off would be the hydraulic tensioner. Msequence made a good point about the water pump, if there going to be in there anyway have them replace it. Don't let them charge you big labour, they already have to take everything apart for the timing belt it only takes a few min to install.

Water Pump

I did take the risk of not changing it, because Repair cost me 1089$ ..:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

They changed spark Plug wire, pulley, Tensionner, timing belt.. And a total of about 6 hours of labor, plus 2-3 hours for scanning code to find what was the problems in my car (pulley had blown-up and it have scratched the timing belt.. anyway the timing belt was to change I got 104 000 km's.

Now the car run fine, not better and not worst than before
