Hi David,

This link will show you what you need to know, read below as it’s a simple process I describe below, here’s a link to a video outlining the process:

This will be simple. Remove the distributor cap and mark the rotor's position(very important)pointing relative to your distributor cap/housing, also mark your distribitor's position in relation to the engine so that you can put it back exactly as it was to begin with. Now unplug anything in the way and pull your distributor Remove a metal that's holding your pickup coil in place(on your distributor) by simply tapping it out with a small metal punch or similar device. After removing the pin, slide the pickup coil up the distributor shaft and when you get to the top just swap them and reassemble everything in the reverse order of how you took it apart. Take your time and just do it carefully, you'll be done in no time.

Can anyone show me where crankshaft position sensor location on 1991 pontiac firebird 3.1L and show picture or video link of the location

Zach, guess what? It doesn't have one. I went around and around with this very same issue with a local car parts supplier. Yes one shows up on the list of parts for this year and engine... it is all done through the pick-up coil and ignition module in the distributor. Tell me more about your problem. I have tons of experience on this make, year and model.

Tail lights not working but the brake and turn signal works

no year, ? check the haz fuse. at left knee.? a wild guess. no year.
parking lights, the work on the front and rear. not just tail.
the parking lights and brake and turn all are controlled by the hazard module. and on jeeps , turns and brakes are a shared resource (blubs)
major warngler mile stones, all vastly different. are and i quote.

No spark

I'm a little lost here.
The 6 cyl engine uses a distributor, the V8 does not.
I don't show a part for a pick-up coil for either one.
Which engine do you have, is it a 99 jeep, and what exactly did you put in the dist hole ??

I want to know how to remove the pick up coil from my 1991 caprice distributor in a 305 engine

Hi, In order to remove the pick up coil, the distributor must be removed, once out, take the roll pin out of the gear, and the shaft of the distributor will slide out. Once the shaft is out, the pick up coil can easily be removed , or replaced. Before you remove the distributor, you should put the engine on #1 TDC to keep time.
Good luck...Coop
