Did you replace the spark plug wires also?
There is a cam sensor. It is also known as the distributor pick-up plate.
The distributor plate is under the distributor cap and rotor. It is a flat black plastic plate. The way to test it is to replace it with a new one
Yes, the cam sensor could cause the problem you are having, but so could a few other things.
I have never tested a coil the way you are doing it.
I ohm test them cold and then again when it is hot.
Two test you can do...
CAUTION: When disconnecting a high voltage cable from a spark plug or from the distributor cap, twist the rubber boot slightly (1/2 turn) to break it loose Cable Removal Grasp the boot (not the cable) and pull it off with a steady, even force
WARNING: BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN THE ENGINE IS CRANKING. DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS NEAR THE PULLEYS, BELTS OR THE FAN. DO NOT WEAR LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING.
To prevent unnecessary diagnostic time and wrong test results, the Testing For Spark At Coil test should be performed prior to this test.
