Question about 1993 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

93 pontiac bonneville wont start

I bought that camshaft sensor today. Looked different than the one I removed so I brought it back. the one I removed has a 2 prong connector and the one they gave me has a 3 prong connector. also mine has a long magnet on it. they checked every one they had in stock and previous and later years but could not find the one I need. said they never saw one like the one I need. Just realized my car is a UFO. any ideas?

    It is not either one of those pictures that you sent me. the first one is the one they are trying to give me. I dont know if it is the original motor but I bought the car 11 years ago and have always bought parts for 93 pontiac bonneville ssei and they worked. The sensor looks like the 1st one you sent although the one I neen has a 2 prong connector and that round magnet part is about 1inch long.Im sure I pulled the right part. I try the dealer like you suggested. once again thanks a million. kyp

Try a dealership - not necessarily to buy the part from them.... but they have expanded blowups of the engine.... down to every last bolt and nut, and you can get a part number & price from them. Then look it up on eBay or other online parts source.
THIS PAGE has a few different GM CAM sensors.
Browse the pictures and descriptions.
Are you positive its an original engine?

    is this it??






    It appears to have 3 wires though as well.

    It is listed for the '93 S SE



    This one is also listed








    Or is it possible you pulled the wrong part?

    HERE is a listing of sensors for your vehicle. Compare them to see what it is.



    Keep me posted!

Replacing bad camshaft position sensor


  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.
