Camshaft position sensor on 1998 BMW 740iL

Sometimes when i start my car up she will start but like after two seconds it will cut off. i would have to start it up about two to three times before its able to drive without cutting off. does this sound lik the camshaft sensor or something else???

Asked by for the 1998 BMW 740iL
Sounds to me more like an Idle Air Control problem, but a diagnosis will 100% have to be performed. We charge about 100$, the range is 75-150 for a BMW usually. MAKE SURE YOU GET A PRO!!!

sounds like a camshaft position sensor, the car cannot pick up the proper timing you can find it at your local auto parts store I think it was $140 and my car instantly ran correctly the cam positioning sensor even caused my cruise control not to work you can put it in yourself in 20min
