Question about 1991 Buick LeSabre
I need to know how to repair it and how to fix it. I was told it was possible the crank sensor.
The camshaft sensor on this engine was located on the passenger side of the engine. You will need to remove the serpentine belt, and you can get to it by removing the inner fender or splash guard and get to it that way. I went down from the top. There are two sensors, one is a CRANKSHAFT sensor and other is a cam sensor. Make sure you know which is which. The crankshaft sensor is at the bottom of the engine, the camshaft is right by the water inlet. It is held in by 1 or 2 bolts. If your car is throwing the code for the camshaft sensor, just a heads up. I replaced the sensor and the sensor detects magnets installed on the camshaft. The engine kept throwing the code and came to find out one of the magnets had come off the end of the cam. I am telling you this just in case you go through the replacement and still end up with the code. the camshaft sensor is not too hard to replace, it's tight but it can be done. unbolt the old and bolt in the new. Make sure you disconnect battery before tackling this project. Hope that help some..
