I guess that depends on if GM wants to cover it in there warranty. I assume that is why you ask. It is not hard to replace and should cost just under a hundred dollars (give or take). It is and electronic sensor. It just takes a reading back to the cars computer to tell it where the crank is. Now that being said it is part of the entire electronic set up that would replace the distributor. Now the distributor would definitely be part of the power train. No one would argue that. It attaches to the motor to make it work. The motor will not work with out it. An oil pressure, or water temperature sensor would also in my book be part of the power train. So in my opinion it would be part of the power train.

What is the purpose of the 02 sensor?

The oxygen sensor reports live information about the engine's air/fuel mixture to the power train control module. This information is used primarily to help calculate fuel delivery to the engine, which changes continuously while it is running. If the engine is running lean, the power train control module will sense this from the oxygen sensor's signal and increase the air/fuel mixture to the engine. Conversely, just the opposite occurs when the engine begins to run rich. On OBDII-equipped vehicles, the sensors are also used to help determine the efficiency of the catalytic converter. The power train control module does this by comparing the signal of the sensor located at the inlet of the catalytic converter with the signal of the sensor located at the outlet of the converter.

Where is the governor located on a 2001 Pontiac Grand AM SE and what steps do you take to bypass it?

Why would you want to by-pass a govenor? I don't recommend trying to increase how far you can extend the accelerator if that is what you mean. The amount of fuel is calculated by the power train control module (PCM) with inputs from the Manifold absolute pressure, Mass air flow sensor, Throttle position sensor and coolant temperature sensor. the PCM controls the Fuel injector pulse width, opening it wider as more air is brought in from the accelerator being depressed.
