I just got a 97 honda accord lx 5speed 220k. ive changed the spark plugs and spark wires. when I give it gas, it makes a sputtering noise and the check engine light flashes for cylinder 1 and 3 misfire. should I change the distributor ? It gets up to speed ok, it does it alot on the freeway and makes this poping noise.

; yes, dists are known failure units, buy a new aftermarket unit, rebuilts suck

you think a cap and rotor will do the trick? these particular distributors aren't cheap.
