Usually a small green spacer was one of the parts you would require in a rebuild or reman, the sensor is removed, then replaced, the green spacer was used for replacement. Many times you may not need to use one, especially since there was no extra time or pay, but one job that comes back, makes it standard procedure to remove the crank sensor, first thing. No big deal but for customer it is big deal, so it was always removed. It could be something else, dep. On 3.0 or 3.3, 3.8L
The computer will not allow any performance if it thinks the crankshaft is not turning, good for interference fit valves, but doesn't always help.
