If you know exatcly the position the rotor is in when you pull it,you can replace it fairly simple,remove the one bolt at bottom,unhook wire,s,remove cap,mark the rotor position and the bottom of the distributor for position,pull it up and replace,or set the timing marks,on the crank,and number one plug,before you pull it.

As this is also the cam sensor, after you get it set where it runs without turning on the check engine light for a sync signal you should take it to a Chevy dealer and have the ECM re flashed. This is not necessary but just a good idea. Make sure you tell them all that was done.
