lol - good advice though. I had the same issue a couple of years ago and talk about frustrating to troubleshoot! Mine would cut out intermittently on fast right-hand turns! How the heck do you simulate that in your driveway to troubleshoot? Never did solve it until the sensor fell off altogether and the car stopped on the side of the road!

Lol, I guess humor has no place in troubleshooting but what the hell. If I couldn't laugh at the whole thing I most likely would tear up my back trying to push the car off a cliff........... BECAUSE IT WOULD NOT START!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well it turns out that the problem was the ecu. Although the one I found for $180.00 was the wrong one, My mechanic got the right one for $300.00, the sensor was $48.00 and I was only charged $105.00 labor for everything done and out the door! I had read that this guy was incredibly reasonable but I was actually shocked by what he charged me! The car is running better than it ever has I am still grinng ear to ear!

AN ECU AND CRANKSHAFT SENSOR DIAGNOSED AND REPLACED FOR $453.00!

well done and congrats..
I went to a local import shop after purchasing my Spider and they wanted $600 just to set the valves...
Needless to say I found another source who is an AR specialist and was a portion of the price.
