Replaced the sensor.

Light is still on.

I dont think I have ever had a car that has had as many problems as this. Still runs fine, except the light is on. Time to cut the wire

no, its time to replace the magnet. you readily spend over $20 on a sensor, yet complain about spending $10-$12 on gaskets. you just need to replace a $9 magnet.

EDIT: no you dont need vavle cover gaskets

Whereabouts is this magnet you speak of? Is that near the sensor I just replaced? Any pics or diagrams?

It'* behind the sensor that you replaced, on the camshaft sprocket. Or rather, that'* where it used to be.

Check out Padgett'* website, it tells you what you need to know: http://www.6007.us
