oil in the distributor cap, need help
I'm doing a tune up on my car, spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor started off with the cap.
Ummm when I was taking off the distributor cap on my 5sfe I noticed the bottom bolt was kind of oily, took off the cap, and noticed there was some oil in the cap, mostly around the bottom but some got to one of the top conductors. Which explains why my car has been stumbling while accelerating, don't know how to describe it but it would accelerate very slowly even though I had the pedal floored until it hit like 3.5k-4k rpms then it would go faster, it would do this occasionally. Recently it has gotten a little worse because it did it more often now as before it was only sometimes. Now I don't wanna replace the cap with a new one, if the oil is gonna get to the new one too. So how do I fix this oil issue?
For now I'm gonna clean up the old distributor cap, and put it back on so I can drive the car and hold off the tune up until I get some ideas from here how to fix this oil in the distributor cap issue.
What do I do now? I found some oil in the distributor cap. Is it just the little rubber seal that's around it that needs to be replaced or what? Please help, I was hoping I could just do a tune up by myself, but I don't know what to do about this oil in the distributor cap.
