The camshaft sensor is in the distributor, it gets saturated with oil when the seal fails between the distributor shaft and the distributor, Remove distributor cap and see if oil pours out of the distributor body. There should not be oil internally in the distributor. The distributor pick up can also fail intermittently it requires replacing the distributor.
