    I'd like to try to keep this oriented towards how-to's. Any questions regarding them, please post them in the tech sections. Or on their respective threads.

    thanks,

    Also, For people looking to find their Crank / Cam sensors, This is a good picture..

    Shortblock7.jpg
    Doing them is pretty self explanatory.

    On another note..
    On the 94-98 Models, the cam sensor is underneath the Coil Pack.


    Thanks to JPL4K3 for putting this picture up. lol
