Crankshaft sensor resistance

I'm still working on my hesitation issue, today I changed the plugs and ran some tests out of the bentley. All the coil packs are within spec as well as 12v at the coil packs. The crankshaft sensor was showing 550 ohms. the bentley calls for 1280 +- 10%. I don't really have any trouble starting. You guys think this low resistance would make a big difference in drivablity?

Thanks

Hi not sure but i think the crank sensor is inductive pulse so unplugged with voltmeter on ac should give out 0.5 volts ac ans rising on crank.

Well the Bentley says to check for resistance not voltage. plus it's not going to create a magnetic field (thus voltage/current) unless i'm cranking the car, which i'm not when i test this.
