VW Beetle Distributor Caps at Wholesale Prices

Your VW Beetle's distributor cap receives a spark from the coil to initiate the ignition process. The copper contact inside the cap receives the spark, which then leaps to the metal rotor. Due to the rotor's proximity to the spark plug contacts when the camshaft turns, a spark will arc between them. The compressed gas in each cylinder is ignited by the spark plugs after traveling from the contacts through the spark plug wires and spark plugs.

Distributor caps need to be replaced from time to time because they are frequently exposed to heat and vibration and they will typically crack. It will also stop working effectively if carbon deposits accumulate on the cap over time. The distributor cap might be damaged if it has trouble starting, especially when it's chilly outside, stalls, backfires, or makes knocking noises.

The following are additional signs of a bad distributor cap:

  • Startup issues
  • Trembling engine
  • Engine stalling
  • Squeaking sounds
  • Check engine light illumination
