THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR IS LOCATED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HEAD. 2 BOLTS AND AN OVAL FLANGE. IT HAS A RED LOCK ON THE PLUG WHICH YOU JUST MOVE TO THE RIGHT TO RELEASE THE MAIN PLUG. BUT I dont know if thats your problem. the timing belt seems to fail on these cars prematurely. Dodge recomends 90,000 miles but many cars bend engine valves before this due to the timing belt. (around 83000-88000) miles. I would reccomend having someone look into this problem first. Also trying this yourself can be costly, simply because the timing belt MUST be installed properly and exactly. If this is not done the engine could be at risk causing expensive repairs. Ihave a friend who had the timing belt replaced by an individual and the i recieved it on a tow truck. Which it now cost them 1600.00 to repair. I have been a mechanic for 15 years. But i got smart and went back to college and npw i am a refrigeration technition. Just trying to help you out. any ? nateboulet@hotmail.com i would be glad to help.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Dodge Stratus with a bad camshaft

For a 2.7 liter six cylinder engine, the camshaft position sensor is located in the front or on the right side of the front engine head. Be sure the engine is cool before you start to remove it. It's fairly easy to change, just in an awkward spot to get to. You can see the connector on the front of the head just right under the top radiator hose. The sensor is held in with a 13mm bolt that has a wiring support tab attached to the top. Remove the wire support tab and then remove the bolt. After the bolt is out, just pull the sensor out with you fingers. A new sensor from the dealer will run around $55.00.  Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted, be glad to help.

Camshaft Sensor 2003 Dode Stratus RT 3.0


The cam sensor is usually located at the front, on the end of a cam shaft. You may also want to change the crank position sensor. BUT.......check the timing belt first, make sure it is still intact. I'm not sure if they still used the Mitsubishi engine in 03, but check your cap too. The distributor cap also (I think...) has a pick up and a silver disc under the cap. The Mitsubishi engine, they went bad frequently.

I pulled codes from a dodge grand carvan the code is p0016 crankshaft sensor b1 sa1 replaced and replaced camshalf sensor also still did not fix the problem what other part should i look at


Hello! The DTC P0016 inidicates a cranskshaft and camshaft misalignment. If you only replaced the camshaft position sensor - you may need to replace the crankshaft position sensor - which is located at the top where the engine and transmission connect.


Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!
