Let's start with the most likely culprit which is the battery. The other components you mentioned could be an issue, but it's less likely given what you've told me. There are several things you should do: Check the age of your battery. There should be little stickers on the top or side, usually round with numbers in them. One set of numbers will be the ...

Instead of trying to replace it the way you are suggesting, why not do it a little easier with a V-Flange split coupler. Something like this: (NOTE: This is just an example from Summit Racing You can find them on eBay all day long.) Each side of the split would fit, one on the cat and one on the exhaust pipe.

From your description of how the "lights were bright and no warning lights", this points directly to the battery to me. Pull the thing and take it down to AutoZone, Advance ...

As suggested in the comments, I don't thing the problem resides in the distributor, but in the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. It either needs to be replaced or it needs to be cleaned and adjusted. Be careful when removing/cleaning/adjusting, as the gears inside are very fragile. It doesn't take much to push the plunger in and cause an issue. I believe the ...
