As the old cliché goes, the only permanent thing in this world is change, and this is definitely true with the automotive industry. To illustrate, olden vehicles (and several late model ones) make use of an ignition system component called distributor, but as the technology continuously evolve, automotive engineers and experts learned a way to eliminate the use of the said component and came up with vehicles that sport a distributorless ignition system.
For unknown problems that resulted from the distributor's untimely deterioration, prospective car buyers delight with the coming up of distributorless or electronic ignition system operated vehicles. But for those of you who still own a Hyundai automobile that is equipped with a point type ignition system, then all you have to do is to take good care of the distributor.
A distributor like the Hyundai distributor is a central component of point type ignition systems. Its basic functions are to distribute high voltage pulses to the engine's spark plugs with proper firing order, and to prompt the high voltage pulses that come from the ignition coil. It is operated by the rotor, which is a rotating arm that is driven by the engine camshaft (also attached to the ignition coil), and the cap that house the spark plug contacts. While the rotor rotates underneath the cap, the distributor dispenses the high voltage pulses from the ignition coil to each spark plug in the proper firing order.
Also, a distributor is operated by the following components - breaker points, cam follower, distributor cam and condenser for the purpose of breaking the current coil and subsequently triggering the coil to come up with high voltage pulses. Thus, the wearing and tearing out of the distributor can lead to the ignition system's failure to start and for all other systems to function as well. This is why, a regular check on the distributor's condition is a must, and should you need to replace it, do it as soon as possible before it chains into bigger problems.
