Obviously this sensor will fail. Do you think it's an  appropriate item to 
replace after X- miles as a preventative  measure? Or is it's failure unusual?

Looks  like Kneale and Randy got it. I drove the car to heat it up then let 
it idle  with ac load and hood closed and she finally died. Cranked but no 
start.  ?Poured some cool water on the flywheel sensors and she fired right up. 
Left  it ideling and she died about 8-10 minutes later. Tried to start but would 
 only crank did the water trick again?and she fired right up. Ordered the  
engine speed sensor. These cars must like water in any form, got her home one  
time by packing snow around the master cylinder when it failed and started to  
drag the brakes!? Thanks for the good help  all....................RRF
