89 civic dx. The other day I was driving home and my distributor rotor fell off for no apparent reason. This happened about a year ago when I replaced my distibutor. This was my own fault because I just didn't tighten the screw that holds it in enough. Afterwards I cranked it down tight hoping that it wouldn't happen again. Anyway, I took the opportunity and did an early tune-up, but ever since the incident, it has been running really rough and eaven stalls on me in the middle of driving. I've heard that this could be the timing belt wearing out. Is this true?
