Default Signs of bad rotor?

How do you tell whether your rotor is bad or not? Mine have some rust on top of the middle on the rotor.

Nothing wrong with rust on the rotor or hub. If you had bad rotors, there would be some shaking when you brake.

When the rotors are cool, feel the surface, it should be smooth, if there are any grooves, they could be bad

if you have rust on the distributor rotor change it.

also check to see why your getting moisture in there.

it shouldnt be rounded off. also check the cap pins.

hmm I just went out and inspect closely and notice that there were a little crack on the cap. It just a little crack though, not much. I guess I should change both of these and hopefully my cel light goes away. No wonder why my cel light comes on everytime it humid outside!

cracked cap your losing electricity in those cracks. what code are you throwing? i dont think there is a code for a bad distributor cap or cracked cap or anything like that.

let me know what code your throwing it could be something completely diffrent.
