Last time I got burned pretty good was last winter, the knock sensor connector came loose on the 6000 wagon while downstate. It misses and sucks gas bad when disconnected, and I had 150 miles to get home. Even after waiting till after filling the tank, I got burned pretty good when reaching down under the exhaust manifold to reconnect it. Next trip I got a new connector from the junkyard and spliced it on after the engine cooled, problem solved.
