Primera distributor problem 1.6 P11 1999 - RichardM
Car unexpectedly lost power and cut out on way home this evening. Never had trouble before, so came a shock. Wouldn't restart, though I tried again after about 40 minutes and it started OK, allowing a further short (driving fine) journey before cutting out again.

Got the AA man out (very good bloke BTW), and he diagnosed "ignition live to distributor OK but no HT output", and mentioned it will need either the distributor fixed or fitting a reconditioned unit. Got a tow to a garage where I will call round in the morning...

Any thoughts as to the likely outcome; cost wise, best source for parts, etc? Many thanks.

dont know where you live but in yorkshire i would buy an autotrader and ring the specialist nissan /toyota breakers, theres loads up here and i most certainly would buy a s/h one and expect to pay £35 to £75 .
Obviously ring the dealer for a ballpark figure but sit down first is my advise as ive never been quoted happy off them yet.

Do these not have an ignition module fitted inside distributor cap?

Just inquire at a motor factor first

Thanks chaps. So a recon unit it will be then? Any known problems with these distributors?
