I guess i will take it off and go see if it is bad or not.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
What if its not bad then what?
Pontiac Mechanic: Amedee, Pontiac Technician replied 7 months ago

Sounds good. Also, be sure to check the cam and crank sensor wiring, cam sensor, and power to the ignition control module with the key on and cranking as it can be a power supply issue.
