There's no way to ohm them as a "good/bad" test. The best thing to do would be to put a scope on them and find out what they see. I actually have a buddy coming on Sunday who wants to do just that. Until then, I'm probably going to check the sensor and PCM pinouts, ohm the wires for those sensors, shake them around a bit, and hope I find a break.Does your timing jump around a bunch at idle? Pull back to like 5 or 6⁰?
I know you said you visually inspected the cam sensor but if it gets worse with a new crank sensor it makes me wonder if that isn't just amplifying another problem and the old sensor gave it some wiggle room?
Also if the cam sensor works with the crank sensor to calculate misfires then does it possibly have an impact on the timing logic? I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable than I am chimes in here but I feel like it'd be worth a shot at changing both. Or a loose connector or pin somewhere maybe. Also can a guy maybe ohm either of those sensors out or read a voltage off of it to see whether it's good or not before just tossing another part at it?
I think the FWD brackets would be in the way of the PS reservoir and catch can hose. The only place that really works and gets cooler temps is where the battery tray used to sit. The trouble then is having plug wires that are 5ft or longer. lol I think I'm gonna scratch the ICM relocation. I'm not going to buy another harness either. Buying another 20 year old bundle and modifying it isn't going to make it new again. If I get this one working with the band aids, I'll pull it out and make it nice over the winter.Your not crazy and I'm planning on going through my harness as well before I'm back together as my plastic is disintegrated as well. If your relocating coils it looked to me the fwd bracket would work real nice to move them up front and I don't think there's really anything in the way other than short wires to stop you from doing so
It's a huge pain in my ass.what a debacle, hate to see this thing giving you so much trouble after all of the trans work you've done
You've checked out the plug wires already right to make sure they're not arcing already too right?
I about guarantee that's what I did to mine too. I'm not looking forward to the extraction! I do have a good key on my parts block. Hopefully I can remove it without destruction.Looks like the keyway got shaved down?
I had that happen once in my car. Didn't align the balancer perfectly and ran the bolt down and destroyed the keyway. Had to go find a new one and dig out the old one. Huge PITA
Will never do that again now
