    sounds like maybe they forgot to put the reluctor rotor ring back on the output shaft.

    You don't have to pull the housing - just remove the VSS and you will be able to feel the reluctor ring with your finger. If it is there then use a screwdriver and see if it is tight-just don't force it if it is.

    The reluctor ring should be tight -I think it is a press fit.If it feels loose when you check it with your finger or a screwdriver something is wrong. Can you feel it with your finger thru the hole ? What do you mean kinda loose ? It has to be solid on the shaft .The reason I say this is I just did all this stuff this week with the help of the above guys.Also if it is tight did you ohm the sensor ?
