What Does An Ignition Control Module Do, And Can I Find A Festiva In Junkyards

This is the car that says:

“I’m selling my Festiva. Its an ’88. Carbureted. Replaced motor with around 100,000 miles on it. Upgraded to 5 speed manual. Body has around 211,000. Ok shape. Left front fender is banged up. Left tail light is broken. Front 2 tires are new. Rears are ok. I have 2 extra tires on wheels as well. New lower control arms, tie rod ends. Radiator leaks a little bit. Not bad. Has a nice cd player with usb and mp3 jacks.

The ignition module went bad, and while solving that problem I realized that my distributor had a huge crack in it. I had it in the bed of my pickup until I got around to going to the junk yard to match up the part. However someone stole it, my spare tire and broke into my tool box.

So its going to need a distributor, with a good ignition module, a battery and then you have a great running, drivable Festiva. Has lots of great parts. Its not perfect. But not a clunker either. I just don’t need it anymore.”

So far, i see ignition “Control” Modules at $70 and Distributors at $200.. maybe it just needs a Cap?

Input? Advice? Anyone have these parts?

Thanks!!
