Solution to surging and stalling


Recommended Posts

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions. Code PO41 is definitely the cam sensor inside the distributor. Note:typical distributor wrenches 9/16 and 1/2 you can buy anywhere, will not work. Cadillac from 1982 and up decided to go with a 15mm wrench that only Snap On sells for $60. With a little patience, 15mm standard wrench will work along with a magnet retriever.

I think I got mine from jegs or ebay for $15. Of course just used it once and was done with it. I sold it to another desperate soul that needed it for his distributor. No need to buy name brand for a one time use tool like that! After seeing the tool I could have bought a cheapy and bent it in that shape as well

Before I'd pay $60.00 for a distributor wrench, I'd buy a 15mm box wrench and heat it with a torch and bend it and then weld a piece of bar stock to it to extend it.
