Wow, that's incredible. You know, My 84 5KT still has its
*original* 4-wire sensor and it has not failed me yet. In fact,
the only things that have ever required replacement on this car
were: radiator, pressure accumulator (a la bomb) , brake master
cylinder, intake air-temp sensor, and one window regulator. I'd say
that's pretty reliable (and they all say that 84 is a bad year for
these cars. Hmm...).
Knock on wood.
