Buick Grand National Cam Sensor Install
Dont forget to check out the IG and Facebook pages for the channel where I post almost daily all the little shenanigans I encounter day to day driving my Buick Grand National. https://www.instagram.com/venomgt87 https://www.facebook.com/venomgt87 In this video, I show you guys how to remove, install and properly set the entire cam sensor assembly. This took approximately one hour. You need to remove any parts that are on the way of the sensor just to facilitate this procedure. Once you have cleared the area, you remove the retainer bolt and then play with the body of the camshaft sensor until it spins freely, then you can begin to gently pry at the base to lift it out of the timing cover, this step requires patience as the base of the sensor is very thin and brittle. Once you have removed the sensor, you can begin to prepare the engine by finding top dead center then spinning the engine another 25 degrees ATDC (after top dead center) or 1.45 inches past TDC (top dead center), now the sensor itself has a dot on the gear and a keyway on the top of the body which both need to be facing the passenger side fender to properly mesh and drop in. Now you are ready to drop in the camshaft sensor. As you will see in the video (where I literally drop it in) these preparations make the installation of the new unit very easy and if done correctly, you will get the engine to start on the first try. I have provided the links to the different sites I read before attempting this procedure so you yourself can do this and have an extra aid while doing your own. http://gnttype.org http://turbobuick.com http://vortexbuicks-etc.com Hope you guys enjoy!
