    Like 2 weeks. I haven't personally done anything to it but changed the oil and tires on it

    How are the two wires modified? I can't tell in the pic. Can you post a better pic?

    Okay. Is your multimeter still ready to measure resistance? If so, touch one probe to pin 1 and the other probe to pin 2. What is the reading? Post a pic.

    It only shows up for a split second but it reads at around 16.

    16 Ohms, 16K Ohms, or 16M Ohms?

    It should be a constant reading. Be sure to touch the probes to the pins and then hold steady.

    Take your time. Do the test several times to be sure you have a constant, reproducible reading.

    If you still can't get a reading, now move to the distributor.

    Unplug the TDC/CRANK sensor connector.

    Measure resistance between male pins D and E.

    What is the reading?

    Okay. The CRANK sensor is bad. It should read 350-550 Ohms.

    What's the reading between pins B and C?

    The TDC sensor is reading bad as well.

    Reconnect the distributor connector and return to ECU connector C453.

    In unplugged C453, what do you measure between pins 3 (Orange/Blue) and 4 (White/Blue)?
