Welcome to just I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal.



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.

Which one is the intake CMP sensor?

Expert:  Bill replied 4 years ago.

THe one labeled (1) in the picture.... closest to the front of the engine and the intake manifold.

Hopefully this will fix my shifting problem.

Expert:  Bill replied 4 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.




Customer: replied 4 years ago.
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!

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.

It re-occured again. Got a fault P0013. Exhaust Cam Solenoid Actuator?

Well I replaced it and it's shifting fine now. Sure hope that I'm done with this issue.
