I need to know where my Camshaft centering sensor is located on my pickup, and how to replace it, can you help? It turns but does not start.

Asked by Jun 02, 2015 at 01:24 PM about the 1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Extended Cab LB RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've tried New fuel filter and new plugs but it still is not starting so I'm thinking the source of the problem is the Camshaft Centering Sensor, but I don't know where to find it on my truck, or how to test whether or not it works or how to replace it. And information would be helpful.
Thank You
p.s. the picture provided is about the look of my pickup, but is not mine

It's also called a pickup coil. It's in the distributor

I don't know where the distributor is
