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,

I have a 1990 buick park ave that is idled very high


check your car's error codes for anything you might have missed. the last time I had that problem, the knock sensor had also gone out due to a spark plug wire leak that had also done a number on the computer.

Replace the crank sensor on a 1996 buick park ave


you have to remove the serpentine belt then the harmonic balancer to get to the crank sensor. its located behind the balancer then disconnect the electrical plug. when replaced you have to make sure the air gap is set so the balancer blades won`t hit the crank sensor grooves.

I have a 94 Buick park ave. I replaced icm, ecm, tps, map sensor, cam position sensor, and crank position sensor. Starter tested good but not getting a spark. What can it be


Have you tried testing the ignition coil pack(s)? If this goes out then there wouldnt be any spark delivered to the plugs, this part is relatively cheap and is a common problem causing no spark.
