1) What would happen if the sensor were too close to the toothed wheel?
2) What would happen if the sensor were too far from the toothed wheel?
I've checked the gap on my 1994 530ia crank/rpm sensor, and it was 0.015 in, (less than half the recommended distance, according to the specs I have).
I've seen posts in the archives that problems with this sensor (dirty, etc) may cause code 1222, which is the code I'm getting.
If there were a problem with this sensor, wouldn't the RPM guage reflect the problem too?
Thanks for any replies!
