computer uses cam sensor to adjust injector pulse so, yeah , it sure could, if it has one

The cam sensor on a 99 Buick Regal is located behind the rear cam bearing cap. It monitors the rotation of the cam and relays information to the vehicle's computer.

your buick is ovisley not super charged with coil packs because its looking for a cam sensor

there is a 3 wire sensor bolted to the front cover of the engine. use a 10mm socket and remove the bolt. after unpluging the sensor carfully rotate the sensor up and down in order to loosen it from the engine. then pull out

There is no cam sensor on a 90 3.1. Only a crank sensor.

No crank sensor on a 1990, only the pickup plate (cam sensor) in the distributor. how about a 1991?

IS CALL CAMSHAFT SENSOR AND IS LOCATED ON THE RIGTH SIDE OF THE ENGINE , ABOVE THE CRANK PULLEY You will have a crank sensor, but it won't have a cam sensor. it dose have a cam sensor, on the timing cover left sind of water pump

Both the CAM and Crank sensor are on the front of engine. The cam semsor is to the right and held in with two smaller screws. It is actually a sealed Hall Sensor device but pretty easy to change.

It keeps the camshaft in time with the valves

Crank shaft sensor need replaced or cam shaft sensor

Cam shaft sensor is located under the power steering pump on the block

In order to replace the cam sensor on a Buick Regal 3.8L, you must first access the main dash board from the back by either entering the hood or removing the panel, and then crossing the two wires in question.

It should be in the front of the engine as part of the front cover, it will have a 3 wire connector. Understand that if you remove, replace this part you will have to re-align it to the proper timing mark on the crankshaft dampner. TommyTrouble

I would think that any car without a distributor would have a cam sensor and a crank sensor. For the computer to send the fire signal to the correct spark plug it needs to know the position of both shafts. The failure of either of these will cause the engine to die. Older cars used the distributor to do this mechanically.

It should be behind the camshaft postition Sensor in the timing box attached to the end of the CamShaft. It allows the computer to know where the cam shaft is in order to properly inject fuel to the proper valve at the proper time.

Just did this today. The sensor is located on the front face of the engine. If you are standing by the right side fender, feel down on the back side just behind the water pump pulley. It is located at about the 8:00 position just below and to the left of the pulley.

The cam shaft sensor is located behind the water pump pulley. One bolt that holds it in place.

It doesn't have a crank sensor. It only has a distributor pick up plate (cam sensor).

Could be cam sensor, crank sensor, throttle position sensor, mass airflow sensor or the magnet on the crank. We just replaced all of the above and found out the hard way it was the last...and cheapest. Pull the cam sensor, look at the end of your cam and see if the magnet is damaged.
