Question type: Maintenance & Repair

RPM's seem sensitive, I almost have to play with the gas to accellerate ^so it won't stall. I checked the distributor cap and its clean. I was told to replace the distributor.

If you have IDM code in the computer then I would at least replace the ignition module on the side of the distributor and pickup coil inside the distributor unless the bushings are worn out in the distributor then you might as well replace the whole unit. Check for codes first.
