    Hi all i have a 1992 j 309ce 24v. Lately the performance has decreased, (not responsive).
    Also when idling it isnt as smooth as it once was, it has developed a little shake. I sm however going to service it this weekend, does anyone think that it would benefit from cchanging the distributor cap and arm. any ideas please

    Hi

    I would have a good look at the distributor cap and rotor arm...you might have a little bit of moisture in there.

    Distributor cap and rotor arm a worth a look at, as per the previous post. I would also look at the spark plugs and leads too.
