   Sorry about the first blank message, i must've pushed enter inadvertantly.  Anyhow, I guess i should have knocked on wood when i said the 200 was running better than ever...  It was, until i decided to pull onto the freeway two days ago.  Zipping up the onramp...5000 Rpm in second Gear...the car is really picking up speed, and then...a deafening silence.  No thrust whatsoever, no stuttering either...just quiet.  so without the means to go on, i maneuver to the side of the onramp, check the fuses (all ok) and decide to have it towed back to school.  After doing some tests, my mechanic finds that there is no spark and the injectors are not injecting.  He thinks this is due to a sensor near the bottom of the engine block that magnetically measures the rotation of the flywheel and tells the respective components when to squirt and zap.  Any listers have experience with this issue and-or know the price of replacement for this part?

Many thanks,
