Thanks! A mechanic got a 'corrupt' and irregular reading in distributor diagnostics. The '95 rebuilt distributors are apparently of poor quality. He couldn't guarantee that replacing it would solve the problem.

IF he thinks dis is bad,dont buy one fron a auto store,rebuilt,not worth a crap.go to your local junk yard and get one,it will be factory and cost a lot less,you should also replace crank sensor,$15.00 part

Thanks again! I will try that. They are pretty rare. The original Dist. failed after the timing belt broke. I replaced it with a rebuilt. It lasted about 14 months. :(
