I've never done an "oil flush", not sure what that would entail.

Are there performance issues with the vehicle? If not, I guess I would just drive it, although your vehicle has a lot less miles...

What sensor does OBD2 use for RPM?

Is it the crankshaft or the camshaft sensor? I'm using a bluetooth adapter with Torque lite, trying to diagnose a potential crankshaft sensor failure left me stranded.

On my M44 - at 60 deg F, I measured 5.2kohms going to the DME, and 12.9kohms to the gauge cluster.

Does anyone have data to say that's good or bad?

Camshaft Sensor Output Voltage?

Can anyone confirm, based on personal observation, what the output of the cam sensor should be? I'm reading 0 and 12 volts, depending on cam position, but I've read accounts of 0 and 5 volts.

I've had varying success chasing AC leaks - on one vehicle, it was subtle, never did find it. On another it was blatant, refrigerant bubbling out due to old dried up orings.
