    Do you mean the crank sensor, check on this, they can typically break off and the broken piece can be pushed into the pan. If so I have left them in there, or pull the pan.

    not a motor head
    Oldsmobile supreme 2.8. I had the mechanic try to put a new camshaft sensor in. He called and said the old sensor had broken off in the motor. Is there anyway to get it out? I really don't want to take the motor out. The mechanic said I have to go through the bottom to get it out. Any suggestions?

    finally after about 8 years i bought ( a c delco)front strut cartridges for my 98 lumina(220,000 miles).
    i remember alot of discussion about how much oil needs to be used.
    i searched the forum and can,t find anything new.
    the instructions say fill it up with oil.
    my mechanic is chevy trained and drives a car same as mine.
    he said just a little is needed wne he did his.
    what would you do Max
    and thank you for your advice.

    TBI, sounds like a bad egr valve partially stuck open or a lazy idle air control.

    thanks for the advice. i am also having another major issue with my truck. when i start it up, the idle is fine, driving on the road above 15 mph the rpms are also fine, but upon deceleration, my truck almost stalls out and dies no matter what. it ALWAYS happens when i slow down. i dont know what to do and its really starting to get on my nerves. i noticed that you have an answer for almost all of the older chevy posts so i figured i might as well go to the source.let me know what you think, thanks.- chad

    I am 71, yikes.. Agreed on Erich, seems to be on top of the GM stuff, sounds like a dealership employee.

    Hi Shep,
    Who's the Old Man of this site nowadays?
    Looks like Twospirit's last post was a year ago and I want to nominate Eric for Adviser on the Bravada site.

    It just spins like it is stripped, if so take it out and look at the threads make sure it is the proper length and thread size.
