Screamintrashcan is on a distinguished road

Quite aggravating when climbing a hill, especially with a trailer, isn't it!! I have the same problem with my 02 v-8 explorer, the fixit guy that I use tells me it's the crank sensor, probably with a hairline crack? I haven't yet gotten around to taking his suggestion and changing it to test his theory. Years ago, this same thing was going on with another buggy of mine, and it was a bad bonding wire to the frame from the engine, seems all that iron bolted together sometimes isn't enough for the ignition to work quite right, all the time. Just my two cents...
