  • Q:

    1992 Buick Lesabre giving some rough idle, random occasional stalls (maybe once a month), and code 41. The internet says it could be the cam interrupter magnet, could be the sensor.

    Is there a way to verify that it's the sensor (not the magnet having fallen off)? Also, where can I find installation instructions?

    Thanks

      A:

      I'm happy to help you! Remove the sensor and insert a small screwdriver or 1/4"-inch drive extension in the hole. Turn the engine over by hand and see if the magnet pulls the tool. You can also use a mirror to look in the hole to see. Installation instructions will be in the vehicle's service manual.

    Where is it located on a 1988 LeSabre? Also, after installing a new one, does anything have to be reset?

      A:

      Hi Gary, I would be happy to answer this! The camshaft sensor on your Buick LeSabre is located on the passenger side of the engine. You will need to remove the serpentine belt to gain access to it by removing the inner fender or splash guard and get to it that way. There would be two sensors, one is a crankshaft sensor and other is a cam sensor. 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. Unbolt the old and bolt in the new. Make sure you disconnect battery before tackling this project.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Camshaft Position Sensors are a magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.
