I am going to be replacing my Camshaft Position Sensor as well as my Crankshaft Position Sensor on my 89 S10 2.2 truck. I know one of the sensors is located by my coil packs (I can"t remember which one though), but I can"t remember where the other one is located. Could someone one help me with the locations of the Camshaft Position Sensor as well as the location of the Crankshaft Position Sensor, please?
2.2 was not offered in 1989. 2.2 was not introduced until 1994 iircanywho, there are some pretty good pics in this thread.http://www.tasiilaq.net/forum/f105/1998-ignition-coil-changeout-writeup-pics-498253/the sensor to the right of coils in pic is cam sensorBelow the coil packs is the crank sensor.Why are you going to replace them ?

Crap, I have a 98 S10 2.2l, not an 89, sorry about that. It"s a long story as to why I want to replace them. I"m typing this up on my fone, so when I get home I"ll tell you why I want to do it.

As for what"s wrong with my truck, I moved out to Odessa, Texas from the Santa Barbara, California area late March of this year. I work in the oilfields out here. When I was driving back to my apartment (On a Friday), from a rig I was working on, I came to a stop light; when I came to a stop my truck just started to die on me, bog down like it was trying to stall out on me. I kept having to press the gas to keep it from completely stalling out on me. I was able to get it home, but it scared the crap out of me. Back in 2015 I had a new motor put in my truck, I had this hiccup, hesitation, when I was driving it. I changed the coil packs, spark plugs and wires on it to no avail. So, my dad said to just put a new motor in it, and he"d help me pay for it. When they got the new motor put in my truck, they called me to say that it was done, but there was a hiccup when they did their test drive. I freaked out, I just dropped $5500 into putting the new motor in my truck, to fix the hiccup! I took my grandmother"s car and I went straight to the Chevy dealership that was working on my truck. We went back and forth as to what the problem was, once again to no avail. Then one of their older mechanics came up to us to see if he could lend a hand. We told him what was going on, and he recommended that we drive the truck down the street a few blocks, then get out and disconnect the TPC sensor (Throttle Position Control Sensor) and drive it back. Well it ended up being the TPC sensor, LOL, a $5500 sensor!! After that the truck drove great!!Now back to Odessa, Texas. After I got home, the next day I went to the local Chevy dealership, but they said they don"t work on trucks older than 2000. So, I went to the GMC dealership down the street, and thankfully they said they could work on/ fix my truck. So that following Monday I dropped my truck off at the GMC dealership. I was able to go back to where they were working on my truck, and I was able to talk to the mechanic; telling him what was going on with my truck and asking him what he thought was wrong with it. The mechanic said it could be a myriad of problems, but he would hook my truck to their computer and go from there. After hooking it up to their computer, there wasn"t a trouble code, and the "Check Engine" light wasn"t on. So, we decided to take my truck for a test drive, to see if it would start acting up like I described, and naturally it didn"t. The mechanic said that based off of the information I gave him, that it sounded like it was my fuel pump, and he recommended that I change out my fuel pump. I hastily agreed and I also told him that my A/C never worked and that I needed a new compressor for it. He said that the A/C compressor would be an easy fix. I spent $2300 for the fuel pump and A/C compressor, and I picked my truck up that following Saturday. About 2 hours after getting my truck, and driving it around, it started doing the same shit again and I was beyond pissed!! It was losing all power, bogging down and trying to stall out on me, but this time the "Check Engine" light came on. I ended up having to get it towed back to my apartment that day. The next day I was able to get it down to the local O"Reilly"s, to see it they could read the codes, there was a TPS code and a random misfire code. The guy said to replace the TPC sensor, so I bought a BWD TPC sensor with a limited lifetime warranty. I was able to drive my truck home and I swapped them out and once again my ran fine. A few days later I was working at a different rig, and it was a bit warm that day, so I kept my truck running with the A/C on. After a few hours, I noticed my truck sounded like it was bogging down, and what sounded like a not good sound coming from my tail pipe (I can’t really describe the sound, but it didn’t sound good). I got in my truck and saw that my “Check Engine” light was blinking, I freaked out and turned my truck off. At the end of the day I was able to start my truck just fine, the “Check Engine” light wasn’t on too. I drove back to my apartment with no problems. I looked up what the blinking “Check Engine” light meant, and this was the link I found: http://www.tasiilaq.net/forum/f107/blinking-check-engine-light-whats-that-mean-124754/ The next day the “Check Engine” light wasn’t on, and when I drove my truck, it drove just fine. And it drove just fine for the next few weeks. After that few weeks, when I was driving to a rig, my truck started bogging down, losing power, and the “Check Engine” light started blinking. I was able to get my truck limp to the rig, and a few days later when I was released, I was able to get my truck back to my apartment, but the “Check Engine” light was still on. I then took it to a muffler shop, where they replaced my catalytic converter, and once again the truck ran fine for a few days. Then it started doing the same thing all over again, bogging down, losing power, trying to stall out. So, I took it to a local mechanic, to see if he could do a tune-up on it. He replaced the plugs, wires, and one of the coil packs. I went with the mechanic when he did his test drive, and the truck ran fine. So, after I paid for everything, I drove it back to my place. I was about a quarter of a mile from my place, driving it with the A/C on, when my truck just completely died on me, truck turned off and everything. I was able to get my truck started, and there was not “Check Engine” light or anything, and I drove it back to my place. I was able to drive it for a few days, then it started doing the same shit again, bogging down, losing power, trying to stall out on me! I came to my very very very small mechanical knowledgeable conclusion that it was my fuel injectors going bad. So, I spent another $1000 having the fuel injectors replaced. The day I got it back the A/C was on, and I was able to drive it back to my place just fine, I finally thought I got it fixed. But I was wrong!! Yesterday, when I was going to the Texas Department of Public Safety Office here in Odessa, my truck started doing the same ****ing thing again, bogging down, losing power, trying to stall out on me. When I got home I took the air intake plastic box thing off, and I cleaned out the throttle body valve. I went to O’Rielly’s and bought a new Idle Air Control Valve (IAC Valve) and some cleaner for the throttle body valve. When I was there I was talking to one of the guys that worked there. I basically told him everything I’ve typed up here, and he said that it could be almost anything. He said that it could be the IAC Valve, it could also be the Camshaft Position Sensor, or it could be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. So, I also bought a new Camshaft Position Sensor and a new Crankshaft Position Sensor.All I know is I am tired of spending money I really don’t have and I’m tired of pulling my hair out trying to fix my truck. I just stared a new job with H&P Drilling, so I really need my truck! I need my truck to last me, hopefully to the end of the year, when I can buy me a new (Used) truck. I don’t know what is causing my truck to bog down, lose power, and trying to stalling out on me. I called a friend of mine who owns a gas station back in California to see if it’s the gas out here in Texas causing all the problems, and he said no. I just don’t know what to do, and it really ****ing sucks!! But any ways I’m about to go change the IAC Valve, clean my throttle body valve, and maybe change the Camshaft and Crankshaft Position Sensors. And if all that doesn’t work, my next guess is to replace both Oxygen Sensors.So far, since I moved out here, below is what I’ve had done/ fixed/ replaced/ repaired on my truck:Fuel Pump & A/C Compressor - $2300New TPC Sensor - $45New Catalytic Converter - $150Tune-Up (Plugs, Wires, Coil Pack) - $420New Fuel Injectors - $840New IAC Valve, CRC Throttle Body & Air Intake Cleaner & CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner - $92New Camshaft & Crankshaft Position Sensors - $120I think I covered everything as to what’s going on with my truck, hopefully I didn’t forget anything. Sorry I typed up so much, I just wanted to make sure I put everything down.If anyone has any idea of what could be wrong with my tuck, and how to fix it, I would forever be indebted to you!! Thank you in advance!!
