SOURCE: camshaft position sensor

This V-6 has a very hard to find/hard to reach CKP - it is directly under the Distributor, about 4 inches below, inwards toward the Transaxle "bell". Almost dead-center in the back of the engine.
Your going to have to take the Air Filter and the air manifold that runs to the engine off. After that, take off the horn assembly to gain very, very limited access to wedge an extended ratchet into the bowels of the engine. 
I think the same socket that undid the horn assembly fit the CKP nut. It takes 10 minutes to undo the bolt a couple ratchet clicks at a time, at least 15 to get the thing to wiggle out, probably 15 minutes to unconnect, reconnect, and snap back to the fram the wire harness, and at least another 10 minutes to ratchet the bolt back in click by click.

Now you know why they say shops charge $500 in to do this - I think they must take the entire engine out... Very painstaking job that requires patience and precision... but quite satisfying to finish it yourself. 

Good luck and hope this helps,

SOURCE: camshaft position sensor

The camshaft position sensor is on the rear cylinder head on the left end (the serpentine belt end of the engine - passenger side). It is a son-of-a gun to get at. When it is bad or the connector is intermittant or bad, the symptom will be irregular idle from 500 to 750 RPM or so.

Location of the mass flow air sensor in a 2007 Cadillac SRX? how to replace?


Hard to believe you have a bad MAF in a 2007 caddy. How many miles on car? Have you tried cleaning the unit?

Parts store have a locator chart which should show location.

Location of cam sensor on 2006 Cadillac model sts 4.6 engine


Here is the sensor location on the 2005 STS. My understanding is that on the 2005 it sat over the exhaust cam sprocket and on the 2006 it sits over the intake cam sprocket. That should be no problem as there will only be one to locate.

Tying to find crank sensor for 2002 Cadillac Seville std 4.6 liter


This answer covers 1999-2005 Cadillac Deville, Eldorado & Seville.
Example Engine:
2002 Cadillac Seville STS 4.6L SFI DOHC HO 8cyl.

This engine has (2) Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensors: the Upper sensor is CKP sensor B, and the lower sensor is CKP sensor A (this is included for the OBD-II DTC codes - P0385 references Sensor B = upper CKP sensor, whereas P0335 references the lower CKP sensor (sensor A)).

Both crankshaft position sensors are located in the front of the engine just above the oil filter adapter. To access both CKP sensors, jack up vehicle on the passenger side, remove the oil filter, and the oil filter adapter, including the Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) switch. See illustration.
tying-find-crank-sensor-2002-cadillac-3hcuyyaerdphtgzyedxwn2k0-1-0.jpg
The ARROW points toward Front of Car.
1. Upper Crankshaft Position Sensor (B).
2. Lower Crankshaft Position Sensor (A)
3. Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) switch
4. Engine Oil Level switch
The Oil Filter is the can-type object below the oil filter adapter, which includes the EOP switch. Recommend: remove oil filter with an oil filter socket/strap wrench, since it's close to the oil pan.

1998 Seville STS - Location of Bank1 Sensor 3 O2 sensor on car.


Your engine has 3 O2 sensors: one in the collector section of each exhaust manifold and one just after the catalytic convertor (the one up above the riveted heat shield). So you have two sensors upstream of the cat and one downstream.

My 1999 cadillac sts overheats alot i was told i have a cracked head but i think it is just the gasket how hard is it to change the gasket on this cadillac?


It hasn't been stated whether this is a Cadillac Seville STS, or an SLS. No matter, as they both use the 4.6 Liter, Dual Overhead Camshaft engine.

I would rate this as an 8, on a 1 to 10 scale. It would be a 10, if this Cadillac used wet sleeves. (Some Cadillac engines had a basic engine block, that had the water jackets open. The cylinders, are simply thick metal round tubes, with an O-ring at the bottom, and top. These set down in the block, and are held in place by the head.
There is a head gasket used also. When doing head work, or anything that involves removing the cylinder head, the wet sleeve cylinder, must NOT be disturbed from it's setting. If the cylinder is bumped, it can move, and the pattern the piston has made, will be disturbed. This means re-honing that cylinder. Lots of fun, these engines!)

Have you had experience with dual overhead camshaft engines? If yes, this is right up your alley. If not, be prepared for a small learning curve.

The engine must be removed. This is a transverse engine. The rear cylinder head May clear the firewall, it may not, if trying to remove it in the car. However, it is absolutely no fun trying to lay across the engine, and clean the gasket surfaces of the block!
This is just the tip of the iceberg, of bad things to come, when trying to replace the head in the car!

Just my advice.
