JA: Got it. I'll pass this info along to the mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes, if possible. I have taken this to many mechanics, they replace something. crank sensor, .

The problem with this Camaro codes is the 16 pin obd1 scanner wasn't available for some mechanic shop. I took it the dealership that mention a exhaust link. The mechanic talk about the crank shaft was the problem that did not work. then code was for some regulator it may call something else, that didn't work , then the speed sensor came up. By this time I am close to $2,500. Frustrated.
