****. It'* gone. I was turning the engine, and it happened to stop at the cam sensor hole. Stuck my finger in the hole, I feel no magnet in the sprocket. I have a feeling it'* in the oil pan, as I have a few neomydium magnets stuck to the pan. I would assume the magnet is a dealer part? I can't find it on Advance'* site.

It'* probably sold as part of the timing gear (i.e., not intended to be removed ) Unless someone else pipes up with a part number, I would hit a dealer and try to get a number for just the magnet alone. Otherwise, somebody on the list might have a spare camshaft timing gear that a magnet can come off of.

Really, changing it isn't a big deal. It'* not like the oilpan has to come off, or the motor needs to be lifted off the mounts to get to it. A couple of hours worth of work and you are back in business with a new timing chain set.

This is common on our Vin C motors as well. Heres a link to a write-up over on LeSabreT. It should at least cover the basics of how to change it out if you haven't figured it out for yourself yet.

The rear of that magnet looks an awful lot like the vin C magnet... I wonder if its the same part? If you can find a picture of just the magnet for your engine I can post a pic of just the magnet for the vin C engine.
