Well, fortunately, I never use Shell gasonline, even though that is the station closest to my house. Not because I've had problems with the fuel, however, but because of the ownership, employees, and environment of the station itself. Since I've had the car I've filled up at the local HEB grocery store, Sam'* club, and Chevron, which is where I filled up last.

Quick question for you knowledgeable people out there though. My mechanic said that it is possible the problem is being caused by a faulty Cam shaft sensor, which to my understanding, feeds signals to the coils telling them when to fire each cylinder. He warned that it might be a problem because the water leaking from the water pump was getting the sensor and it'* wiring wet. Could this be an issue? If so, how much am I looking at to replace it? And is it something I can do, considering my limited abilities?

Just an idea I thought I'd throw out to see what people thought about it.

That is possible cause I guess. But the connector should be easy enough to check out.
I can't remember if it'* the CAM SENSOR or the CRANK SENSOR that doesn't throw a code when it goes. If memory serves correctly though the Cam Sensor throws the code!

This could very well be an issue for you. The cam sensor is located right under the water pump on the 3800 and if it gets wet for an extended period of time, it, like any other piece of electrical equipment, will fail. The connector on mine does have the usual rubber gasket to keep out water, but it only keeps out splashes. If it was being sprayed, that a good place to look. Try using a scanner to see if there are any stored codes. 19 is crankshaft position sensor, 41 is the cam sensor...the are the 2 digit codes. The 5 digits are: Cam - P0341 and P0342. Crank - P0335(position) and P0336(reference). I hope this helps!
