Remove the cap and mark the rotor to the distributor housing so you reinstall it in the same place.Remove the rotor from distributor and put it on a vise.On the bottom where the gear is you will see a roll pin.Use a punch and hammer and remove it.Spray some carb cleaner and spray it down the shaft and twist and turn the shaft while pulling up on the shaft.This will make it easier to come off.You might have to keep adding carb cleaner til it comes out.Then install the new shaft,gear, and roll pin.Then reinstall the distributor and align it to your mark.Good luck.

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.

My 1995 cadillac deville feels like it misfires or stalls while driving. It had a p041 code. Replaced ignition control module and still the same problem. Anyone have any suggestions?


The P041 code on your year model Deville is distributor related...either the hall effect switch and/or the magnetic pickup coil is defective...my guess would be the pickup coil. If your car has high mileage, you might want to consider replacing the entire distributor with a rebuilt one. Good luck, i hope this helps,

Symptoms of a bad pick up module on a 1996 GMC K2500 Suburban


What I see the most often is a stalled engine with a loss of spark when driving. Once the engine cools off it will sometimes start and run fine for a short while then do the same thing again. Often, but not always, the pickup up coil or ignition module [both are under the distributor cap] have to heat up quite a bit before they will act up. I replace about 10 ignition modules for every one pickup coil but either one can cause the same identical stalling problem. I keep a few known good modules around as test units so I can just replace a suspected bad module and road test it to see if it works. Another thing that can go wrong in these distributors are the magnets built into the pole piece. A weak or cracked magnet can cause all kinds of odd problems such as stalling when placed in reverse, misfires over 1,000 rpm, etc. Worn bushings in the distributor can also cause problems. As far as a specific test you can do to see which part is failing? I wish there was a relaible one. I've tried using a lab scope and module testers to diganose the culprit but you have to catch the problem as it's happening for those tests to be accurate.

check to see if you have your plug wires at the right location on distributor cap. If you don't have a digram they are as follows- right side 1, 3, 5 front to rear. Left side is 2,4,6 front to rear. #1 should be on the location at front of cap closest to intake manifold. firing order is 1,2,3,4,5,6. Hope this helps. KS
