To the best of my knowledge a 98 2.2L 4-cyl does not have a cam sensor. It does however have a crank sensor and if you look at the lower crank pulley just to the back of the pulley and go around the pulley you should find the sensor mounted on a bracket. You should see what appears as a sprocket with widely spaced teeth on the engine side of the pulley. This "sprocket" so to speak is what the crank sensor "reads". I believe that the crank sensor is the only sensor used for engine timing. The 2.2 is an overhead cam engine design and a crank sensor wasn't used. I know this is the case for the 96 models, both 2.2L and 4.3L v-6 and the design has carried through current models to the best of my knowledge.

my 1996 hombre that's a s-10 clone with a 2.2 Chevy motor has a cam sensor i just had to replace it. the easy was is to take it to advanced or auto zone let them scan the computer for the fault code to tell you witch sensor it is. its location is on the bottom of the engine block passenger side. some say its easier if you take the tire off to access it.

The location of the O2 sensor depends on which engine your Chevy Celebrity has. If it is the 2.5L 4 cylinder the O2 sensor is on the front of the exhaust manifold near the exhaust port. If it has the 2.8L V6 the O2 sensor is on the top center of the exhaust manifold near the firewall.

If your refering to the engine knock sensor, it is moounted in the side of the cylinder head and has a single wire connector. try not to damage it when removing, it is a piezo electric device and is vulnerable to impact.

The process to change the pressure sensor is the same for any engine in the 2005 Silverado, but the location may change between engine types. The sensor should be close to the oil filter. Remove the sensor wire, then screw the sensor out. Screw a new sensor in, then reconnect the wire.
