New CPS....how long do I have to relax

I drive from Ca. to Seattle and Vegas....if that thing crapped out on me in the middle of the desert.... The last one lasted 70K. I will get a spare soon...looks hard to get to being directly on top of the crank pulley...

Do yourself a favor like I did. Get on your driveway and do a practice run.That way you know where your hands and tools go before you have to do it for real in a less desirable situation.

its actually not that hard to get to.....but..

The one that was just put in could go 300k...or 3k...its really an unpredictable thing....geta spare, put a wratchet with a short extention and a 10mm socket with it..and drive with the piece of mind that you wont get stranded....
