As chigger_ns just said: P0320 is no reference signal from crankshaft position sensor detected during cranking.

On a 2001 it's pretty easy to get to. Just above the oil filter.

To the Crankshaft sensor? Never heard that one before. I experienced the burnt/broken wires from the Camshaft sensor when the harness broke loose and hung down low enough on the back side of the engine to hit the spinning half shaft. First and only time my baby had to be towed. They broke 2 out of 4 under car LED lights.

That's why I request a flat-bed every time.

11;30pm, traveling home to Florida from Virginia on I95. 80mph, engine light come on, car starts dying. Just about made it off the highway to the shoulder. Cranks but won't start. Reach for the cell (I have Chevron Travel club) and only 1 bar of power left on the phone. Had to quickly tell the travel club where I was (exit at Waterford S.C.) and tell her my phone was about to go dead, please send help. Wasn't thinking flatbed at the time....but should have.

Chris; My chart shows p0320 = 'ignition/distributor engine speed input circuit malfunction'. ---- Imagine the possibilities!
