      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Distributor Pick-Up Assembly:

      JEEP YJ. Easy install. Failure can cause stalling, poor mileage, efficiency, idle.
      BWD makes stock replacement and "P" premium parts are little better than that of stock. Although i don't know of any performance gain, it was visually constructed better than original replacement part. Spend the extra 2 bucks!
      I had an electrical problem where i wasn't getting power to the distributor coil, could not figure it out as this "Switch Plate" looked fine and was recently replaced as well as other components. The power would go on with ignition and quickly shut off. "No Crank Signal at PCM". Thorough inspection revealed that 2 of the wires were worn broken and frayed connection at the plate caused the vehicle to stall while driving and then got so bad it would not run for long whatsoever, Trouble Codes indicated this part. Replaced and runs perfect, no complaints.

        • Q:

          I have a 95 Jeep Cherokee Country 2WD Inline-6 4.0L. I have recently begun timing issues with it and I'm trying to diagnose the cause. I've used a timing light to verify that it is a timing issue. Before opening up the timing chain cover I'm wanting to eliminate all other possibilities. I have just recently finished removing/inspecting/re-installing the distributor, using online guides and a Haynes manual, and I'm still having the same issue. The only part of the distributor assembly not crossed off my list is the Distributor Ignition Pickup (I've heard some call it a Camshaft Position Sensor or Ignition Position Sensor). Having a 95 Jeep can be frustrating as it rarely seems to match the guides I find online for other year models and even the steps in my Haynes manual. My question is; how do I go about testing this particular part. Like I stated above I would like to cross this part off my list before I dig into the timing chain.

            Happy to help you with your question Rattlehead6798! For a ignition pick up the only test you can do aside from a visual inspection would be a resistance test between the terminals. For the values refer back to you repair manual, they would be the same across most models using the I6 distributor.

        • Q:

          My jeep starts fine. Then after I drive awhile shut it off for 1 min to 20 min sometimes it starts runs real rough stalls out. Try start it up after it stalls sounds like not even trying to fire. If I wait half hour then it starts right up like normal and runs fine. Would this part cause this to happen? Info There is no engine light on even when it runs rough. It happened about 5 times over 3 month span. I only drive it 2 or 3 times a week.

            Yes, the distributor pick up assembly should be the possible cause of the problem.

        • Q:

          is there an underlying problem that causes the distributor pickup to break?

            A:

            The faulty pickup coil cause the engine to buck after you reconnected the hose to the vacuum-advance unit because one lead on the pickup coil often will break internally- the strands of wire inside the insulation will be damaged, but the insulation it selfs looks OK. In most cases, when the coil is stationary the damaged section of the wire will make contact and complete the circuit. when the engine is accelerated, vacuum is introduced into the advance unit and its arm will begin to rotate the pickup coil, thus advancing the ignition timing. as the coil begins to rotate the strands of wire in the damaged area separate and break the pickup coil to electronic control module.

            A:

            Yes, if the pick coil is bad it would not allow the jeep to start as the pickup coil determines this firing order as it spins within the distributor, using a magnetic sensor in place of mechanical breaker points.
