SOURCE: cant find the cam sensor
The camshaft sensor on this engine was located on the passenger side of the engine. You will need to remove the serpentine belt, and you can get to it by removing the inner fender or splash guard and get to it that way. I went down from the top. There are two sensors, one is a CRANKSHAFT sensor and other is a cam sensor. Make sure you know which is which. The crankshaft sensor is at the bottom of the engine, the camshaft is right by the water inlet. It is held in by 1 or 2 bolts. the camshaft sensor is not too hard to replace, it's tight but it can be done. unbolt the old and bolt in the new. Make sure you disconnect battery before tackling this project.

Check the number on the ECM . If it has the number 1228253 on it that is your problem. They had a cutting off problem while driving. Get one with the number 16198264 on it. The 1228253 is junk and gm replaced them with 16198264.

It is on the front of the motor just under the rear part of the waterpump in the timing cover. But I doubt it is the problem. Sounds more like a bad crank sensor. Which is located behind the crank pulley.

SOURCE: Find crank position sensor
The crankshaft position sensor should be located behind the vibration damper/harmonic balancer and it will have to be removed before the crankshaft position sensor can be replaced. (Let me know if you require assistance with the proceedure)
Also, it usually requires a special tool to align that sensor (available from most auto part stores) and if the sensor is not properly aligned then damage to the sensor or the tone ring can occur.
Here is an image of the crankshaft position sensor with the vibration damper/harmonic balancer removed.
