I just bought a beautiful white 98 riv today and am excited to see such an enthusiastic following! You all have been a wealth of knowledge and I haven't stopped reading for the last 5 hours! I'm in Wyoming but go to Idaho and Montana a lot so if anyone is from around there we could do some cruising! Thanks for making such a fantastic resource on Rivieras and I am excited to join! Hope to talk to ya'll sometime!

Yesterday afternoon after I had bought this car I ended up using my AAA for the first time turns out they sold it to me with a bad alternator! I also have a trouble code and the dealer "explained" it to me. Would a car run perfectly with a camshaft position sensor missing it's magnet? I really don't think so but anyways the trouble code is a bad camshaft position sensor, how difficult are those to change? Also does anyone have any experience changing the camshaft interrupter? I can deal with a cam sensor and a bad alternator for 76k miles, 10/10 condition for 3200...

Welcome!

That's interesting about the alternator. When I bought mine in '03 with 24.5k miles, my alternator mysteriously died at about 30k; replaced at no charge. Still, I wonder if the earlier units weren't as good?

Someone wrote something about the cam position sensor:

Glad you found our forums, and congrats on the new purchase!

Welcome to the site! Fix that alternator and CPS and you'll love this car!

There's plenty of info here for the CPS (see aaron's post above).

Enjoy!

Planning on modding? hell yes i am! I just toasted my coworkers 07 charger sxt tonight in a 0-90ish. That heavy ass charger couldn't touch my nimble rivie! I fixed the alternator today. and our batteries are huge.. 890cca.. incredible. Anyways alternator was cake, when the snow stops and its above 30 degrees out I'll do the cam sensor, I hope it's the sensor and not the interrupter! Anyways first mod is going to be a FWI. After I pay taxes, insurance, and registrations/license plates I'll plan my mod budget. BTW do we lose torque doing headers and a 3inch down pipe? Thanks for the warm welcome!

Thats what i like to hear! No loss in torque with headers. Forced induction is great ain't it? if any torque is lost, its probably not noticeable because we make so much anyway ( especially when you start dropping pulley sizes. I assume you know about KR and that right ? Good kill with the charger too. a few mods and you should be pulling on Hemi chargers.
