Camshaft Position Sensor. AKA, "The one that pissed me right off when it failed simultaneously with the Crank sensor, and took forever for me to diagnose"

The only thing I hate worse than electrical problems are simultaneous failures of electrical components.

And the Dutch.

Can't do that here...my mirrors are on my doors...and required for driving.

I'm afraid I'd get the top off and not be able to get it back on and it would rain before I could get help.

Well, I came here with a question, thinking this was the place for it...but after reading the whole thread, it doesn't seem to apply. Ah heck, I'll put it here anyway, since it's bugging me and is 'what comes to mind'.

I go to the grocery store to buy grapes...they are in zip lock bags with no less than 2 pounds in each bag. I don't WANT 2 pounds....if I DID, I'd like maybe a pound of green and a pound of red or black. I always think, "Darn it...I should be able to buy just what I want, and am tempted to take half out...after all, it wouldn't be cheating anyone if I only take what I'm willing to pay for, right? Yet....I never see extra grapes laying in the area. Anyone work...(or used to work)...in a grocery store and can answer this for me? Grapes are $2.49 a pound when not on sale....if I want to buy 2 kinds of grapes, that means $10.00 worth of grapes, which is RIDICULOUS!

Brittany...Why did you even have a fake FaceBook account, when it's just as easy to have the real thing? Paranoia?....or some other reason? Just curious.

LOL! At least you don't have to teach your spouse how to work on cars. I have to walk mine through everything. We just pulled the motor from our Honda and I had to tell him everything!

Good point. I don't know why.

You are more than welcomed to take out what you don't want. I used to work at HEB and Kroger. We have extra bags for the grapes people pull. I actually add grapes to my bag. My bf and I go through them like they are going out of style. I know dogs aren't supposed to have them, but my dogs love them and get a handful once a week.

I have a fake facebook for work purposes. I cannot be on mine at work, but I need one for work. Get it? lol

My mirrors are on the doors too, but I just hooked up a bicycle mirror to make mine legal. Sorry for the lousy picture.

And you need to get someone to show you how to deal with that soft top. Once you've done it a couple of times, it shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes to lower or raise it.
