94 deville camshaft position sensor location

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help verifying camshaft position sensor is next to oil filter housing for a 94 deville? Don't want to waste time removing oil filter housing and can't find the sensor. Lol. Thanks

On the Northstar the camshaft position sensor is on the passenger side end of the rear cylinder head. No where near the oil filter housing. See attached pic. 

Do you really mean crankshaft sensors? There are 2 on front of engine....kinda near the oil filter housing. 

You do have the Northstar and not the 4.9L engine right?

Ah. I guess I read the wrong information all these time. I got P041 code indicating a cam sensor problem. I do have a northstar not a 4.9L engine. Thanks Logan for the diagram. Is it easy to reach the sensor?

If it is the crank sensor it is possible to replace without removing the oil filter mount.

It is much easier though if you remove it. Not bad at all to remove either.

I say it is not a bad idea to remove the mount as it is good to replace the seals on it. They can dry out over time. And I believe they are cheap.

If there is oil in the plug make sure you clean it out good. Likely there will be. That is a common failure of them
