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.

Coolant Sensor Resistance

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.

Troubleshooting Fuel Pump/Regulator

I've got a fuel delivery problem, typical crank, no start.

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.

AC is not my strong point - while 35 psi may be enough to make the compressor clutch engage, I'm not sure if it's enough to get cold air. I'd try charging it a bit more just to rule out low...

I put about 100 miles on it after the RTV, #1 plug well was dry. I would have replaced the gasket, but there's only about 40k miles on the one that's in there.
