2000 Nissan Altima smoking

Asked by Sasquachassasin Dec 07, 2019 at 05:38 PM about the 2000 Nissan Altima GXE

Question type: General

2000 Nissan Altima 2.4l  4 cyl.  I installed a new
distributor and about 2 weeks later I was going
down the hwy around 70mph it spit and sputtered
then a huge back fire. Found the rotor inside the
distributor was loose. The set screw came out. I
fixed it. But now it smokes real bad. Any ideas?
Thanks Joe
