Another vote for always using AC Delco/Delphi sensors, I have had issues with other brand sensors supposedly made for my vehicle, so that is all I use now.

Yeah, I think I'm going to start going AC Delco-exclusive when it comes to sensors.

Just my luck, this time it *wasn't* the sensor being defective... Well, I guess it IS possible that I got a bad BWD sensor, followed immediately by a bad AC Delco, but I'm gonna assume both sensors are good and put the BWD on the shelf as a backup. Knowing the history of the 3.8L, I think I'm gonna have to look at the cam magnet. I had thought it was the sensor since the problem was so intermittent, but now it'* a never-start no matter how often I try.

I haven't gotten into the engine yet, between snow, rain, Christmas, back pain, work, and the Mighty Max blowing a tire while parked at work... Needless to say, it'* been hectic. I got a few days off so I hope to get inside there and find out what the issue is.
