SOURCE: camshaft position sensor
This V-6 has a very hard to find/hard to reach CKP - it is directly under the Distributor, about 4 inches below, inwards toward the Transaxle "bell". Almost dead-center in the back of the engine.
Your going to have to take the Air Filter and the air manifold that runs to the engine off. After that, take off the horn assembly to gain very, very limited access to wedge an extended ratchet into the bowels of the engine.
I think the same socket that undid the horn assembly fit the CKP nut. It takes 10 minutes to undo the bolt a couple ratchet clicks at a time, at least 15 to get the thing to wiggle out, probably 15 minutes to unconnect, reconnect, and snap back to the fram the wire harness, and at least another 10 minutes to ratchet the bolt back in click by click.
Now you know why they say shops charge $500 in to do this - I think they must take the entire engine out... Very painstaking job that requires patience and precision... but quite satisfying to finish it yourself.
Good luck and hope this helps,

First thing to do is to pull the codes than take it from there.
The symptom you describe sounds more like an EGR valve stuck open and riching out the mixture.
There are two types of Map sensors . The analog and the frequency signal type.
First let me take a step back and tell you what this thing does. It basically measures manifold vacuum or engine load and turns it into a voltage signal ECU can read. This sensor usually gives you dentonation, poor fuel economy and poor driveablilty when its gone bad sometimes it will give you transmission problems.
Now if you don't know what type of Map you have check the reference voltage( usually aboubt 5volts) Then check signal Voltage. If the signal voltage never changes ( about 2.5 volts) then you have the frequency type.
Analog sensores are usually located on the firewall near the air cleaner and have a vacuum hose attached to it. To test this one your gonna need a Digital voltmeter and a hand held vacuum pump AND THE SHOP MANUAL TO GIVE YOU THE EXACT TESTING PROCEDURE AS WELL AS THE SPECS.
Good luck ( I really think its EGR)
