Hi
KNOW most technical words , as in difference of CARTRIDGE OR stylus (or needle) inside it, are not used clearly
This page https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/purchased-pioneer-pl-950-new-to-vinyl.543166/
gives a cartridge substitute:
"For cartridges I have seen many recommend the Audio Technica at-95e."
Before buyin see- https://www.audio-technica.com/en-us/at95e for the cartridge.

I don't know what needle is needed for my pioneer turntable PL-X88Z?

You just need to look at the cartridge and look for the make and model number. Once you have that you can search Google for it and the stylus will also show up.

Pioneer pl 1170

Look up the cartridge number and search Google for that. You will find the correct stylus from that.

I have Pioneer pl202az record player.. need help finding to replace the broken needle..

It is seldom worth just replacing a needle. It's not much more expensive to replace the whole cartridge. Easily available online - search by make and model number on Amazon

I suddenly heard alot of distortion when playing the Pioneer PL-990 turntable. Wonder if replacing the needle may take care of the problem.

Depends on the circumstances. Is it only when you play it loud? Air- or room-borne vibrations will feed back through the TT to the speakers. Keep the volume down to avoid it.

If you call the stylus a 'needle', replacing it maybe beyond your capabilities. There are lots of reasons for TT sound to be less than perfect and arbitrarily replacing things can do more harm or introduce new problems. Take it to someone experienced and equipped to evaluate the issue.
