Ancient cam sensor!

Made 1/27/00:



Now I'm wondering if the intake sensor is original!

obviously if you've never changed it... just a heads up, the new replacement sensors are actually larger, but the still fit into the same holes in the engine, so don't be alarmed if they look a bit different when you have the new ones.

Yeah, I figured that out an hour ago when I did the swap!

I for one am also surprised it lasted that long...12 years and 139,890 miles!

Looks like I'm going to replace the intake one soon and probably the cooling system for the hell of it...might be commuting to Spartanburg, SC from north of Charlotte for a few months if I land this job.
