Hello good people!

Just trying to keep my old beater, 1992 Toyota Camry XLE with the 2.2 Liter, 4 Cylinder running at its finest and doing so, I had to replace the Distributor with a "New" one. No re-manufactured parts for my car!

Additionally, I had to replace the Oxygen Sensor as well after trouble-shooting and measuring at the diagnostic connector.
