    Im sorry but I dont know what needs to be done to change the sensor but to get you started the camshaft position sensor is located in the distributor.

    DO YOU HAVE ANY CODES AND REMEMBER CODES DON'T MEAN ITS THE SENSOR ALWAYS BUT THAT CIRCUIT ISSUE COULD BE WIRING OR SOMETHING ELSE.

    I took it to Auto Zone.

    .

    I took it to Auto Zone and they did their little test thing and the read-out code said it was the sensor.I cannot find the code right now. I thought I kept it. I will take it back and have it tested again if I can't find it. Thanx for the info!
