There is one cam sensor in the rear head on the passenger side, as far as I know there is only one.

Maybe the confusion is that there are 2 crankshaft position sensors, and they are located near the oil filter adapter

SOURCE: O2 Sensor on a 1996 Cadillac Eldorado

Hello mrsalbert, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com

Depending on which oxygen sensor you are looking for...there are several of them throughout the Exhaust System. I will start out by giving you a brief description of what and oxygen sensor is, and they're general purpose.

DESCRIPTION
Four Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) are mounted in the exhaust system where they monitor the oxygen content in the exhaust stream. There is an oxygen sensor mounted in each exhaust manifold and one on each end of the catalytic converter. the oxygen sensor located in the front exhaust manifold is the Bank 2 Sensor 1 (Front) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the rear exhaust manifold is the Bank 1 Sensor 1 (Rear) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the Y-pipe ahead of the catalytic converter is the Bank 1 Sensor 2 (Pre-converter) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the catalytic converter outlet is the Bank 1 Sensor 3 (Post-converter) sensor.

OPERATION
An oxygen sensor acts like a battery because it creates its own signal voltage once it reaches operating temperature. This voltage is produced when the oxygen content in the exhaust stream is different than the oxygen content in the atmosphere. A lean condition (high oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a low voltage (near 0 volts) and a rich condition (low oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a high voltage (near one volt). The PCM provides a reference signal voltage (0.45 volt) and a ground to the sensor. The PCM reference voltage is necessary because the oxygen sensors do not provide their own voltage until they reach operating temperature.

HEATING ELEMENT
the oxygen sensors also incorporate a heating element inside of the sensor housing. This heating element is energized with the ignition On and allows the sensors to reach operating temperatures quickly. The PCM can then use oxygen sensor information sooner after engine start-up.

PCM INPUTS
The PCM uses oxygen sensor information during Closed Loop operation to constantly adjust fuel control to reduce exhaust emissions. Because the oxygen sensors provide information sooner after engine start-up, exhaust emissions are reduced. Faulty oxygen sensors will cause various driveability conditions and will set a DTC.

That being said...I uploaded a .pdf for you of pictures showing the locations of ALL the oxygen Sensors on your Vehicle. You can download it by clicking HERE.

I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader!

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.

Where is 98 eldorado cadillac 4.6 starter located?


It is located in the valley between the cylinders. You can loosen the throtle body, all the bolts holding the intake manifold and then lift the manifols just enough without disturbing the fuel rail to gain access from the lest side of the car to the right. This can be done with common tools and the gaskets on the manifold and TB can be reused if not damaged.

1992 cadillac eldorado - need to know what the problem code E041 refers to and how to fix the problem


E041 Cam Sensor Circuit Problem.The Cam sensor is under the plate that under the rotor in your distributor. It's two screws to get it out and it just unplugs. It's like a $100 part. Tell the parts shop you're looking for the "hall effect switch". It's a hall-effect type cam sensor and for some reason that's how it's listed everywhere (Checker, Auto zone, Napa, etc) Good Luck and hope this helps.
