    We got it figured out on our own. It was the pickup coil. Apparently the guys who replaced my control module damaged it while prying it off. Thanks for all the advice.

You will need to pull the distributor out and remove the small round pin at the bottom of the drive gear and pull the center shaft out.

How do you replace the ignition pickup coil on a 1997 GMC truck with a 5.7


A 1997 model should have the cam sensor mounted in the distributor with the plug on the side. Its held in with two screws. The older models were in the bottom of the distributor, and the distributor shaft had to be removed to take the pickup-coil out.
The job of the pickup coil was transferred to the cam sensor, then moved to the camshaft when the distributor was discontinued.

93 f-150 4.9 engine has no spark replace coil pickup module and coil I have power on both sides of coil


I am assuming you mean the pickup coil in the bottom of the distributor. It could be the ignition module on the side of the distributor.
The way a standard coil works, is the module takes away the ground for the coil and forces the voltage to exit to the distributor cap.

Why wont it spark


Someone needs to check for voltage at the coil and the distributor.
The pickup coil in the distributor tells the coil when to fire.
If you are getting spark at the coil tower but not at the plugs, check the cap and rotor.

1983 town car 289 sometimes it starts sometimes not no ignition. replaced ignition module ,throtel position sensor coil dist.cap,and rotor.Thanks


THERE IS A PICKUP COIL IN THE DISTRIBUTOR, IF YOU HAVEN'T CHECKED THAT, IT IS PROBABLY EASIER TO CHANGE THE DISTRIBUTOR THAN TRYING TO CHANGE JUST THE PICKUP COIL. MAKE SURE THE PICKUP COIL COMES IN THE NEW DISTRIBUTOR BEFORE YOU BUY. THE PICKUP COIL OFTEN CAUSES THE PROBLEM YOU ARE HAVING WITH YOUR CAR

How hard is it to install pickup coil in the distributor of a 2001 dodge ram 1500 pickup.


The pick-up coil/stator is easily replaced in a dodge distributor, and once you have removed the distributor cap and the ignition rotor, then just dis-connect the wire connector from the pick-up coil/stator and lift it straight up and out of the distributor, and the distributor does not have to be removed or dis-assembled to replace the pick-up coil/stator. There are two alignment tabs on the pick-up coil/stator that will match up with the distributor cap when the pick-up coil/stator is properly installed. Here are two images to help assist you.

have your already check the high tension wire and the distributor cap maybe the contacts have corrosion in it. Try cleaning it with a sand paper of the contact point on the distributor if you have.

1984 toyota pickup 22r motor. No fire to distributor, I have power to coil but no power from coil to coil wire to distributor. coil, distributor modgual, altunator, all checked good. any ideas wall help.


At the cost of the igniter i recommend checking your pickup coil.( The 2 wire sensor in side of your distributor. The The igniter will not allow the coil to fire with out reference form the pickup coil. Coil has primary and secondary resistances. when the primary coil powers up and then pulses off, this cause a high voltage due to magnetic degeneration. Check the coils primary and secondary resitances along with the air gap in the pickup coil, and also check the resitances on the pickup coil. If i am right your igniter will be okay.Get a good manual for you truck, It will save you money down the road.
Toyota does not have at test proseger for the ingiter.

Also check the wires in between the pickup coil and the igniter.
I hope this helped.
