Just did this myself today.......you have to take the distributor off the motor. At the bottom of the distributor shaff, there is a pin. Knock the pin out, pull the shaft out from the bottom. The pick up is on top. Pull the clip washer off and remove the old pick up. Install the new pick up, plug the wires into the electronic ignition, Install the new (comes in the box) clip in place to hold the new pick up in place. Slide the shaft back into the distributor (from the bottom up) install the pin in the bottom of the shaft and you're finished. Put the distrubitor back on the motor. That's it.

V6 crank position sensorThe crank position sensor is part of the distributor on a V6 All Fieros equipped with a distributor (1984 - 1986 4-cyl and 1985 to 1988 V6) have the crank sensor inside the distributor. It may also be known as a distributor pickup or HEI pickup.Fieros with DIS (1987 to 1988 4 cylinder) have a crank sensor on the back side (engine side) of the ignition module extending into the engine block. The ignition module is the flat base that the ignition coils are attached to.

So many answers to such a vague question. Clutch is worn out, clutch cylinder not working, release bearing seized, out of adjustment. How about some details?
