How many miles on engine? Code does NOT always mean part ,it could be wiring or other worn parts affecting the READING of the sensor.
I got a code that my camshaft sensor set off. I tried replacing it and when I pulled the old one out there was oil on it. I put the new one in and the engine light stayed on and truck still didn't ...
The latest cam sensor is only three weeks old. I buy them at auto zone.
Driving down the highway an my truck randomly dies I wait then start up drive 5 miles dies agai...
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.
