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?

Re: 93 pontiac bonneville wont start
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?

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.
