    I would recommend you to replace the camshaft position sensor first that's your main problem right now.

    replace the cam sensor after you check wiring and connections at sensor...clear the codes and recheck, make sure you use a scanner that gives you a data stream not just a code reader

    Mine was also the cam shaft sensor and I paid $189 to replace it at Geralds and then contacted Nissan and after they told me my 2005 3.5 was not part of the recall I insisted there were many many cases involved so I faxed them my bill and they sent me a check for the amount. They were very helpful so contact them!
