Another Squeak under the hood.

Got a squeak under the hood guys, not the idler, not the alt, not the water pump, not the crank. Could the distributor squeak? Seems to be the only other thing that spins?

Not the ps pump either. Coming from the passenger side it seems.

Take the distributor cap off and look at the underside of it, for rubbing marks.

If the bronze bushing is bad on the shaft for the distributor, the rotor will wobble and leave scrape marks in the cap.

You should also be able to move the top of the shaft where the rotor sits, back and forth if its bad.
