There is only one Crankshaft Sensor. However, there is a Camshaft Sensor, which sounds like the Engine Control one, and the Crankshaft Sensor is the Ignition Systems. Just go to your Local Auto Parts store, and ask for a Crankshaft Position Sensor for your '95 [make sure it is for the Series II, not the Series I, because both engines were available in the year].

Dilon: Dude.. yeah, no light bulb is going to affect the engine whatsoever. On our cars, a wrong bulb can make the car DING DING DING.. but nothing more than that.

opensourceguy: thanks for your reply.

BobDillon: Haven't done the battery thing yet.

Here'* a story. Went out last night for a short drive - maybe about 15 miles. Car ran beautifully - no problems at all. Got to where we were goin', parked, the Bonne sat maybe about an hour. On the way home, started up nice, then all of a sudden DING DING DING DING and the car lost power again. Hubby'* pumpin' the gas pedal like crazy (because SOMETIMES it'll catch again rather than come to a complete halt).

All in all, the Bonne must have done this like 7 times in a row while we were on the highway and each time we had to pull the hell over, put the car in park and restart it again. I was watching the gages as all this was goin' on and I noticed that when we started out the oil pressure was OK, but with each time the Bonne died on us, the oil pressure was getting lower and lower til it was damned near in the red zone.

Well, OK, we made it home. Let the car cool down and Hubby checks the oil. The Bonne had MORE than enough oil.

Who'* got an explanation for this one? I think I wanna burn the Bonne!

High level oil level can be just as bad as too low. The crank throws and connecting rods churn the oil up, and the pump sucks foam.

Drain the oil, change the filter, and put in 5 quarts. Check where the mark is on the dipstick after refilling it and starting the engine so you can be sure someone didn't replace the dipstick with an incorrect one.
