        This product was a replacement for a 4.3blazer suv, 1996. It fixed my problem quickly and was easy to install. If you continue to have problems, check the drive gear on the end of the distributer shaft as they do wear out and mke the engine miss and run poorly.

        Purchased due to the check engine light coming on, and the Jimmy was running rough. It was easy to install. Truck still has hesitation, and poor take off. As well as the check engine light came right back on after reseting it.

          Comments about BWD Camshaft Position Sensor:

          our S10 blazer was shuddering/hesitating going down the road and the check engine light came on. the guys at Advance pulled the code that was setting our check engine light and it showed the camshaft position sensor. we bought one at what i thought was a very fair price, took the vehicle home and installed the sensor.You should be fairly experienced to do the sensor on this one, because you have to remove the distributor,disassemble it to change sensor and the reinstall the distibutor. on the newer GM engines you dont set the timing by turning the distributor, so it has to go back in exactly where needed. Anyhow, it worked, our vehicle is back to normal, and even the milage is up some! thanks again and hats off to the advance crew!

              A:

              With reference to this BWD Distributor Pick-Up Assembly - part# ME91, the sensor may be the possible cause of the problem on your vehicle. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

              A:

              With respect to your inquiry on the BWD Distributor Pick-Up Assembly - Part No. ME91 when you check at the bottom of the distributor shaft where it goes into the engine, you will see a clamp with a bolt in it that holds the distributor. Once you remove the bolt out of the clamp, you would be able to lift the distributor out of the engine. A 9/16 box wrench can help in removing the bolt securing the distributor hold down clamp. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto store and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

              this part does not fix miss fire at all. The fuel Injector fixes miss fire. I had a miss fire on cylinder 4 and 6 and change the fuel injector and wola miss fire gone forever. I did not change the Distributor Pick-Up Assembly, Ignition Coil, Cap, Rotor, Spark Plugs and Spark Plugs Wires at all for cylinder miss fire 4 and 6. I just change the Injector and it was done and gone. I have a 1999 GMC Envoy 4.3.

              This could possibly be the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

              A:

              The distributor is an integral component of the ignition system, routing voltage from the ignition coil to fire the engine's spark plugs in sequence. The pickup coil determines this firing order as it spins within the distributor, using a magnetic sensor in place of mechanical breaker points.
