WHO replaced the cam sensor , you or the shop? Was the Code just simply retrieved and part replaced , or was any testing done? IF the shop was PAID for DIAGNOSIS , they should be accountable for the subsequent problem with a misdiagnosis. HOWEVER.... IF you just had codes read for free somewhere and thought a code meant a part.....and threw on a cheap aftermarket part.....well.....
The engine computer can not see fuel pressure. It may catch it running lean. Vehicle should be checked out by a qualified pro. Cheaper in the long road and fixed right.
