Gosh, it sure would be nice to know which engine you have. If you include some details like symptoms and what you've already tried we can often stop you from wasting time with parts that can't cause the problem you're having.

I know it just bolts on. I put one on when the transmisson was off. Looking at it now with trans on it just seems difficult to even get at it. Do you think it would be better from the top or up on a lift? What needs to come off to get at it, I can't even get my hand up to it. Doug

If you can do a wiggle test on cranks sensor wires, the connection may be bad on that. It can also be a bad connection at pcm. Also replace asd relay with a like one and see if that helps.
