Igniter module unit located at the distributor.

Is it on the distributor? I took the one I had off and put a different one and when I changed it, it wouldnt switch over. I had to try at least 8 more times to get it to start w help of my mechanic.

Yes it is and there is about four other components or sensors that can go bad and cause issues too and these cannot be removed so if bad the distributor has to be replaced. The igniter can be replaced has I think four wires going to it and looks like a grey or black card shape that is plastic on the outside. It is two to three times as thick as a debit card.
