My problem is with the camshaft position sensor. My 1990 Coupe Deville is throwing that code, so I called around for the part. I tried my local parts stores and local GM dealers, and everyone told me its not required. So whats going on here, is everyone lieing or is my OBD just crazy?

If anyone knows where I can one (except a bone yard, Id rather get a new one) that information would be much appreciated.

Yes, you need it, BUT it may be the magnet on the cam sprocket thats fallen out, and not a sensor issue at all.

If it is the magnet, can I get this magnet at a parts store, or is a dealer only item, or what? Plus, if that magnet fell off wouldnt it be grinding or getting caught within the timing assembly?
