Ok thanks
Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

first of all why did you replace the cam sensor? because of the code? you need to find out if a part is bad before you replace it. you're wasting money by not finding out if the sensor is bad.

That was the first thing I thought it would have been

Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

all of these codes come down to the crankshaft position sensor be faulty. remove the crankshaft sensor clean it off, check the condition of the connector and wiring. read the resistance of the sensor and let me know what it is. do not reinstall it until i let you know if the reading is good or not.
