    I have the same problem on my 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 V10 4WD!

    Cranks but no start, code blinks indicate Cam position sensor. All meter tests pass, but still no start.

    Started to replace the sensor, first the bolt head snapped off, then the sensor is stuck, hammering only removes the visible portion.

    What next?

    removing the crankshaft position sensor is a piece of cake (1) remove the starter (2) if you broke it removing it just add some heat blo gun torch BE CAREFUL unscrew it with a flat tip screwdriver (3) install new positioner

The easiest way to remove these crankshaft sensors is to pull the transmission out. They are in a very poor location and anyone with a moderate size hand has trouble pulling these out without pulling the transmission out. The vehicle will not run if this sensor is out, and i recommend replacing it even if it wasn't bad if you ever have to work on your transmission or ever have transmission work done. Knowing you have a Dodge, presuming it's an automatic, you will, and i repeat, will have to get transmission work done.
