Autozone tests sensors for free. Also, check the cam magnet and make sure it's not damaged. added.. CAM sensor is pretty easy to replace; it's just under the water pump pulley. I replaced that myself. CRankshaft sensor will also trigger code 17 and 18 (same as CAM sensor), which the book says is CAM sensor; there is no CRANK sensor code. I had that happen on my 92 PA ultra, and it would stall consistently on the same stretch of road after 45 minutes. Since replacing the CAM sensor didn't fix it, I had the garage replace the CRANK sensor after it died completely. Works fine now. Crank sensor is not as easy; they will have to remove the main drive pulley on the end of the crankshaft to get to it.

No, not really. An engine will run without an exhaust (but you may get arrested). The exhaust simply directs waste gasses and quietens the noise. It plays no part in the running of the engine, but can reduce the performance if it causes on obstruction to the gasses.

Do you really need the super charger in a 94 buick park ave?

If it has a supercharger then yes. If it doesnt have one then no. If you dont like the supercharged engine you have 2 choices, swap the ENTIRE engine and wiring harness out for a non supercharged one, or buy a new car. Just removing the supercharger and putting on a regular intake will create a poorly running engine. Ck my response to "do you really need a super charger in a 92 park avenue"
