Hello & Welcome back,
Is that the Camshaft Position Sensor you are looking for?
I assume this is for your 2000 Silverado?
Not a problem - I just wanted to make sure I had the right part.
To get to the Camshaft Position Sensor, you have to remove the Engine Sight Shield first. Here are the instructions.
Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Tighten the bracket bolts to 5N·m (44 lb in).
Use care when installing the engine sight shield to avoid contacting the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor wire harness connector. Loss of engine performance or engine damage may result.
Tighten the bolts to 10N·m (89 lb in).
Here is the procedure for changing the Camshaft Position Sensor.
Clean the area around the camshaft position (CMP) sensor before removal in order to prevent debris from entering the engine.
Tighten the bolt to 25 N·m (18 lb ft).
I hope this helps.
Take Care, Greg A.
The "big arrow" in the diagrams always point to the front of the vehicle, so the sensor is in the back of the engine.
Let me check another source and see if I can find a better diagram, or some text that explains where it is.
The other source has the same drawing, but it does say "top center rear of the engine".
The connector should have 3 wires in it: Red, Brown with white tracer, and Pink with a black tracer.
Please let me know what you find.
You are quite welcome & thanks for the accept.
Take Care & Good Luck, Greg A.
