Here'* the way I see this thread...

Not a knock sensor

Possible crank sensor
Possible fueling issue
Possible battery drain...probably ELC.

When it dies..you are missing either spark or fuel.. Once we know which one.. that'll be fixed up.

Well gladly you eliminated knock sensor so thats good. I casn eliminate crank sensor because I had that put on a few weeks ago. Also Im not sure if this is the name of it but I think my mechanic put a module on it too. So with knock and crank sensor out of the way it narrows it down. Is there a way I could determine which one it is giving me trouble? I was just reading around about the ELC (electronic level controller), which cars would that apply to? I read its supposed to control the rear end but I dont have anything like that in my car that I know of.

The dealer found a bare wire on my 95 next to the engine also going to the oil pressure sending unit, also bad wire harness above the steering colum shorting the pcm, problem gone after almost 2 months at the dealer.91,000 miles still strong as the first day.
