    Copy & paste the above. Worked for me? Scroll down to fig.2 & click on it. Your sensor should be under intake manifold back of engine, lower area of block, close to transmission

Where is cam shaft sensor located on a 08 saturn aura


Which engine ? This vehicle had option of six different engines , 2.4 , 3.5 , 2.8 , 3.0 , 3.2 , 3.6 And are you picking on the right part ? What code > DTC P0010: Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit

DTC P0013: Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit
It may not even be a cam sensor problem !
DTC P0340: Intake CMP Sensor Circuit

DTC P0365: Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit
DTC P0341: Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Performance

DTC P0366: Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Performance
Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator System
The camshaft position (CMP) actuator system is an electro-hydraulic operated device used for a variety of engine performance and operational enhancements. These enhancements include lower emission output through exhaust gas dilution of the intake charge in the combustion chamber, a broader engine torque range, and improved fuel economy. The CMP actuator system accomplishes this by changing the angle or timing of the camshaft relative to the crankshaft position. The CMP actuator simply allows earlier or later intake and exhaust valve opening during the four stroke engine cycle. The CMP actuator cannot vary the duration of valve opening, or the valve lift.
During engine OFF, engine idling conditions, and engine shutdown, the camshaft actuator is held in the Park position. Internal to the CMP actuator assembly is a return spring and a locking pin. During non-phasing modes of the camshaft, the return spring rotates the camshaft back to the Park position, and the locking pin retains the CMP actuator sprocket to the camshaft

How to change cam shaft sensor on 1998 saturn sl1


There is not a cam sensor on the 1.9 sohc or dohc engine. The ignition module looks at the collapsing magnetic field of the ignition coil to determine cam reference.

Did you mean crank sensor?

Are you coming up with a code for the cam sensor?

If so the fix is usually to remove the coils and ignition module from the transmission. Clean the area they mount to with a scotchbrite pad until all the corrosion is removed. Reinstall the ignition module and coils using new bolts available from saturn/GM. Clear the code.

In some cases the ignition module or the coil or the ignition wires can also cause this code if they are bad.

I would like to know if the cam sensor and the crank shaft sensor are one of the same or two different items


They are two different items. The cam sensor reports the position of the cam shaft(s) which operate the valves. The crank shaft sensor reports the position of the crank shaft, ie the position of the pistons.
