Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car will start but when I try go accelerate it dies. I removed the whole distributor to clean it because someone told
me that was the reason the car started acting up.,when I had the distributor put back in the car wouldn't start period.
Now it starts but if I push the accelerator it dies. Please help me I am a woman that is clueless as to what could be
the problem or how to troubleshoot the problem. Any suggestions or pointers are appreciated . Thank you
