I wonder if you can give me an instruction about camshaft position sensor (camshaft adjuster magnet) for a pontiac transport 3.8. How to put it all together. Thanks for helping!

It's not an adjuster magnet. It's simply a round magnet inserted into the timing gear that the cam sensor reads off of every time it passes it. The big problem is that these magnets fall out of the gear and they are installed from the rear of the gear meaning that if you need one, you're looking at a timing chain job. No way to change it without disassembly
