Just be careful. It's easy to get it one tooth off. If you do it will run ok but ses lt will be on. Even if you get it back in correctly pay a shop to re-synch the ignition it will idle much smoother. If they don't know what your are talking about take it to the nearest GM dealer. David J

This is not something you want to tackle in the garage, however if you are feeling brave....go to alldata.com. You can pay a fair price for info on your car for a limited amount of time. Really, I own 3 shops...I'd pay one of my techs to do this one.
