The cam position sensor (or CMP, as GM refers to it) is mounted on the driver's side of the front timing cover. just below the water pump. It's a simple change if you can get to it. I am in the process of changing my water pump at this moment, and it's really easy to see with the fan. shroud, and water pump out of the way.

As for your crank position sensor (CKP), did you have a dealer run it through the "learn" cycle? I was just looking through my service manual at the CKP info and saw the procedure for calibrating it. If you've been to the dealer to get done, you are aware of it, if not, that could be why you're getting a check engine indication.

The cam position sensor does not need any sort of calibration, just install it and go.

The crank and cam sensors would be a huge problem - the car wouldn't work if the sensors were at absolute nonfucntion, but you'd have issues if the sensor's issues were intermittent.

Find location of pvc valve for 2001 GM silverado 2500HD 8100 vortec engine. I think I have found it however it does not appear evident. This item is on the top of the engine, has a black plastic covering...

Its hard to know what you are looking at, or why. The PCV valve should be in one of the valve covers, Some engines have a heater so it doesnt freeze up and not plug with ice.
