Hello,

There are two camshaft position sensors... one for the intake and one for the exhaust.

There are also two Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid Valves.

The cam sensors are show below.

Thanks!

Hopefully this will fix my shifting problem.

Expert:  Bill replied 2 years ago.

You didn't mention a shifting problem. If you have a camshaft fault code, let me know what code it is. You likely do NOT need a camshaft position sensor but rather one of the actuator valves.

Replaced the sensor and took it out for a test drive. The shifting problem cleared up during the test drive. The check engine light was still on. Drove it to work today (50 miles each way) and it drove fine to work, light was still on. Started it up to come home and the light was out, still driving fine. Don't know what the code number was though. Thanks for your help!

Ok,

If the condition re-occurs, let me know. You asked where the cam sensor was but the cam phaser solenoid are usually what causes a check engine light with a shifting issue. If it happens again, have it scanned for the stored fault code and reply here.

Thanks
