The 'S' model, double overhead cams, uses only one sensor for both the speed and the reference.

The extra sensor on cars after 1985 is used for dealer diagnostics -- sometimes.

With an 'S' it's very important to keep tabs on the chain tensioner pad, chain and timing belt.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
