Verified

On the 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 the camshaft position sensor may fail and cause the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A failed camshaft sensor will require replacement.

    Last year we replaces my Camshaft Sensor A. Three weeks ago my truck took twenty minutes to start but i didnt have another problem until yesterday. My truck wouldnt start, I could hear my starter turning but that was all. I tried to start it a couple more times but got nothing. I came back after work and it started but the check engine light was on. I got home and my husband checked the code and it again.said Camshaft Sensor A. I am starting to think this will be a yearly occurance....

    Stalling we we would slow down at red lights or in slow traffic. We couldnt figure out what it was until it just wouldnt start. So we replaced the Cam Sensor and that solved the problem.
