I'm betting it'* your crank sensor. That'* where the spark reference comes from, but wait for Mark to come through with the service manual info.

Thanx! I have been trying to say that all this time. I am glad I took time out today to check the code and found out that the crank sensor need changing. I did by one like 3 months ago and never got it put on. I will do this Saturday. I hope thats all it need.

Cool beans. I hope this works out. You should still visit your plug wires too.
