i got the codes pulled on my car and it came up as P0320. The description was Ignition/Dist Engine Speed Input Circuit Malfunction Can anyone please describe exactly what this code means and what needs to be done to be fixed and what the possible problems are. Thank you very much

Never seen that one before... Make sure the wiring harness into the coil is plugged in all the way, and that it's not corroded. Also, check the cam (up top, front side of the engine on the timing cover) and crank (low in the engine, by the dampener) position sensors - These are what the computer uses to calculate engine speed. I would clean them up, re-seat the connectors, and see if the code comes back before trying to throw parts at it.

You can see the cam and crank position sensors in this picture- They are both on the right side of the timing cover.
