I just had the timing belt replaced should i worry about replacing the distributor or anything?

No.. but I would jump the diagnostic an make sure the timing is correct with a timing light.


You'll see that to put the car in diagnostic mode you will jump the TE1 & E1 terminals.

After that, use a timing light on the crank an make sure its at 10 degrees TDC. If it needs adjustment, rotate the distributor until you hit the desired number.

That looks really complicated...

It really isn't.

I did the timing on Chaos several years ago, and after changing the belt I didn't bother resetting it. She has run fine for 2+ years since I did that.
