I guess that depends on if GM wants to cover it in there warranty. I assume that is why you ask. It is not hard to replace and should cost just under a hundred dollars (give or take). It is and electronic sensor. It just takes a reading back to the cars computer to tell it where the crank is. Now that being said it is part of the entire electronic set up that would replace the distributor. Now the distributor would definitely be part of the power train. No one would argue that. It attaches to the motor to make it work. The motor will not work with out it. An oil pressure, or water temperature sensor would also in my book be part of the power train. So in my opinion it would be part of the power train.

No, an alternator is not part of the power train. It is an auxiliary to provide electricity.

The oxygen sensor reports live information about the engine's air/fuel mixture to the power train control module. This information is used primarily to help calculate fuel delivery to the engine, which changes continuously while it is running. If the engine is running lean, the power train control module will sense this from the oxygen sensor's signal and increase the air/fuel mixture to the engine. Conversely, just the opposite occurs when the engine begins to run rich. On OBDII-equipped vehicles, the sensors are also used to help determine the efficiency of the catalytic converter. The power train control module does this by comparing the signal of the sensor located at the inlet of the catalytic converter with the signal of the sensor located at the outlet of the converter.

The transmission range sensor or(manual lever positioning sensor)is on your transmission where the shift cable or linkage goes into your transmission.It functions as a park and neutral safety switch (start circuit),reverse light switch,and provides information to the power train control module (what gear is selected).

Yes, the average veterinary position does indeed train you for that position. It is usually pretty thorough.

Why would you want to by-pass a govenor? I don't recommend trying to increase how far you can extend the accelerator if that is what you mean. The amount of fuel is calculated by the power train control module (PCM) with inputs from the Manifold absolute pressure, Mass air flow sensor, Throttle position sensor and coolant temperature sensor. the PCM controls the Fuel injector pulse width, opening it wider as more air is brought in from the accelerator being depressed.

Your vehicle should be 15 feet from a train track.

the power is in the rails causes strong electromagnets to change polarity opposite the magnets on the train. their mutual repulsion keeps the train from contacting the rails

No. A train that uses coal for power is a steam train, those trains referred to as 'bullet trains' usually use electricity as their motive power.

You get the magnet train to work by restall the power plant and a person in team rocket puts in a place. you give back to the power plant and the magent train works

There is no such thing as a solar powered train in existence today, and most likely never will be due to the electrical demands on a train. There are plans to use solar power to power an electric train, but it is simply an electric train and the plan to use solar panels for generating the electric power has no impact on the electric train which could be powered by conventional ppwer sources as well.
