Hi, I was wondering if anyone has used Z doctor in Orlando FL and if so, what has been your experience with them? are they honest? do they do a good job? do they not rip you off? I was wondering because I need a new distributor and I was thinking about taking it to them they said about $235 to replace the distributor plate(think thats what it's called), cap, and all new wires thats for parts and labor... is that reasonable. Thanks for your help,
--Casey

You should be able to do it yourself for half that price and about 30 minutes of work. Mark the timing from the old distributer, place in the new distributer and set it to the old timing and you are set.

If you don't want to tear into the distributor yourself, you could always pick a used one up at the junkyard, or even buy one on line. I haven't priced a used distributor for this car, but I'd think you could do much better than $235. Replacing the entire distributor isn't much work at all. Pull the cap, mark the direction the rotor is facing, unbolt the distributor and wires then remove. Installation is the reverse, just make sure that your rotor is facing the same direction (exact) and you will be fine.
