Asked by Oct 05, 2016 at 09:30 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

every month or two i am burning up distributor cap and rotor. I have
changed ICM, Coil, back to ACDELCO plugs. wondering if i need to go to
original ACDELCO distributor? I had the truck for about 4 years with no
issues, then about 2 years ago i had to replace the distributor, which ran
great for a few months and ever since, i have had to replace the cap and
rotor several times. I  was also told to try going from lead cap and rotor
(which i did) to the brass cap and rotor. each time the cap and rotor seem
to have a green corrosion.
