Bought some more Buick Know how videos off ebay. This one is all about the optispark. I found it funny that Chuck seemed annoyed that the water pump had to be removed to get to it. Very Happy Enjoy!

oh... I only got a few minutes in... I'll watch the rest

Ok, I see it right around 9 minutes about why the early Optisparks were problematic

still watching to see where the breakdown occurs.

The two unvented optis I had go bad gave DTC 16, no low resolution pulse.

I think moisture gets inside, sparks fly and the optical sensor chip gets fried.
