Crank sensors are always located on the camshafts. The 1989 Pontiac Sunbird crank sensor is located on the head of the engine towards to end of the camshaft.

The camshaft position sensor is inside the distributor. The crankshaft position sensor is in the top of the bell housing on the driver side.

The camshaft position sensor is located behind the water pump pulley. If looking directly at the pulley, it is at about the 10 O'clock position. TechJK ---------------------

There isn't one on that engine. Only a crankshaft sensor at the back of the engine.

The 1989 Pontiac Firebird Formula map sensor is located behind the dashboard. The map sensor will be on the drivers side.
