Distributor Cap –The distributor cap distributes the electricity from the ignition coil to all spark plug wires. The distributor cap is usually made of a hard plastic with internal copper contacts.

Most new cars today are distributor- less Ignition Systems, (DIS) and do not have a distributor, distributor cap or ignition rotor.
