He keeps telling me its NOT the crank sensor, its NOT the engine coolant temp sensor.. this has got us perplexed. its a sweet car otherwise. clean as a pin, and sharp, all power options and the FE3 suspension,, Why cant this guy with his computer  and his 25 + years as a GM mechanic, not figure this out?? Help please..btw its running full Synthetic oil in it too
