What are symptoms of a bad pickup in the distributor?

it does not run smoothly and not all plugs fire when supposed to Addition to above: No spark or intermittent spark, a problem that was fairly common back when distributors had vacuum advances was that one of the wires going to the pickup coil (pole piece) would break from the back and forth movement of the pickup as the vacuum advance would move it to control the timing, symptoms would be no start or that it would start and when you put a load on the engine and the vacuum dropped the vacuum advance would start to move the pickup coil, the broken wire would open the circuit and the spark would die.To check this problem was fairly simple by removing the cap & rotor and tugging lightly on the wires where they go into the pickup coil/pole piece, if one of the wires was broken you could see it and knew you had to replace the pickup coil which GM called a pole piece (magnetic pickup coil and pole piece are the same thing).

Why would a 93 Grand Cherokee 5.2L have good spark at the coil wire but not at plugs i tried replacing wires cap rotor still no spark at cap?

Ok, I have figured it out. The coil is putting off what looks to be a good spark, but It is not strong enough to go through the gap between the cap and rotor to get back to the wires. I replaced it and it works!!

1988 ford ranger 2.9 L no spark still have power steering electronics just quit running changed coil and module - could it be the pick up distributor or timing chain?

I have an 89 Ranger with the 2.9L, was driving on the highway and it just quit. I thought it was probably the timing chain, had it towed to a shop and he checked fuel pressure which was normal, found no spark condition. He tested the ignition coil, pickup coil, module and wiring for faults. Failure traced to the ignition control module. He also replaced the distributor cap, rotor, and coil wire. If you have a no spark condition I would recheck all these because I think if it is a broken timing chain you would still have spark. The ignition control module is at the base of the distributor cap. Assuming your ignition coil and ignition control module are good, try the pickup coil. Stay with the ignition system until you get spark. i have the same problem with my 88 ranger changed distributor, rotor button, ignition coil, and tfi module, still no spark. If it is the timing chain it will not spark.

1993 Toyota Camry no spark motor just died you replaced timing belt tensioner and water pump with new plugs cap rotor and wires you still have no spark coil ohms good what next distributor ohms good?

You could have a bad ignitor. It is located on the drivers side fender well. There is also still a good possibility that your ignition coil is bad, despite the fact that the coil resistance is checking out within specs. I would change the coil first; it's cheaper than the ignitor or the distibutor. If still no start and you have verified that the coil is getting voltage then it is the pickup coil in the distributor. Unfortunately, the pickup coil is not replaceable on its own. You will have to change the whole distributor to get a new pickup coil. Good luck.

Can putting a pickup part in the distributor cap help with the engine stalling?

Usually if the pickup goes it won't start. Year, Make, Model, Engine size would help here. Module & coil are popular also. When does it stall? Hot? cold? Idle?

How do you check if you have spark at the spark plug wires?

you would take out the spark plugs still attached to the spark wires. place the metal of the plugs onto a grounded metal spot. make sure they are not touching in order to prevent damaging them or blowing fuses.

How dangerous or safe is transporting a horse in a stock rack via pickup and do you have any considerations or tips?

I'm not sure what a stock rack is, but I think you're talking about putting the horse in the bed of the pickup with a rack or bars for the perimeter. If that is what you had in mind I'd have to say pass on this. I don't even know how you would get a horse up that high. Even a pickup that has not been raised is still to high to safely get your horse in it. Always opt for the a trailer that is meant to haul horses and a pickup truck that is heavy enough with a large enough engine to pull a trailer with a horse combined.

Why is it there is no spark in the spark plug leads?

Why would your 92 Nissan pickup 4cyl 24 liter be very sluggish when accelerating even after you've changed the fuel filter air filter and added injector cleaner?

I had the same problem with 137,000 miles on my Nissan pickup. I replaced the spark plugs and the spark plug wires (with high quality ones). I bought a rotor and distributor cap, but did not replace them. I will in the near future. Just the added items made the truck run like brand new. Much more pickup.
