Make, model and engine type would help. You never know you may be lucky some sensors are only held in by 1 bolt.

SOURCE: cam shaft sensor

It should be at the rear of the head at the end of the camshaft. some are located at the front of the head. Either one, there is a 2 prong plug that goes to it.

SOURCE: cam shaft sensor & air conditioner

I replaced the Cam Shaft Sensor. I also cleaned the Throttle Body with carb cleaner. I had my wife hold down the accelerator, while running I sprayed down the throttle plate and the entire area around it. Now my TB finally idles smoothly, and it hasn't died yet!! Check engine light is gone and I passed the emissions test!! Yea!!!

SOURCE: 2001 Saturn SL2 cam shaft postion sensor

There are no cam shaft position sensors in this model. Check your spark plugs and the wires (boots, etc.) I had the same problem. Also a common problem in this model: if it over heats check your coolant temperature sensor. Jack up one side (drivers) of the car so less leaks out when you check it. The ones that come in the car usually crack, use the copper ones.

SOURCE: Cam Shaft Sensor Problems

Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.

SOURCE: crank shaft sensor? is this the same as cam shaft

no each one has its own job,
crank sensor is counting crank shaft rpms
cam sensor is counting cam shaft rpms
is there any lights coming on just as this is happening?
i think you should have the fuel pressure checked when it dies out,you need at least 50psi at fuel rail

I have a 0340 code for my cam shaft

Well code 340 means the cam sensor is not working correctly. The engine computer is not getting the signal it expects.
The sensor and the wiring would need to be tested.

Change cam shaft sensors

Dificult to know what you mean. You didn't ask a question.

Both cam sensors are likely not defective, if their are two. Scan the ECU for codes and you will lliekly learn which on is defective. The sensors will be located close to the assocaite cam gear on each engine bank. You may have to remove a paltcis cover to access the sensor. The sensor will have a two-wire connector receptacle attached and is liekly held in place by a single 10 mm bolt. Easy to change.

Where is the camshaft sensor on a 2007 dodge caliber?

There should be two sensors. They will be on the side Of the motor that the transmission is bolted to. The intake cam sensor will be on the side of the head closest to the radiator. If you look kind of under the fuel rail you should see it. It will be held in place with a single bolt. A ten mm socket will be neede to remove the bolt. It will also have a two wire connector plugged into it. The exhaust cam sensor is exactly the same and will be in the same area except on the side of the motor closest to the firewall. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Where does the cam-crank sensor go on a 1993 pontiac bonneville?

I don't know about the cam sensor, but the crankshaft position sensor is located just behind the crankshaft pulley, or possibly even right on the pulley. Should be just a small little thing with a couple small bolts holding it down. If you are changing it out, just be very careful to get it reinstalled in exactly the right position, they can be very finnicky.

I need to change the camshaft position sensor for my 1994 buick regal. I can't find the camshaft position sensor location. i was told that it was behind the power steering; still can't find it. Can anybody...

well I dont know that car, but if you know where the camshaft is (middle of the engine) look where the front cam gear is. Its got to pick up a signal from the gear/magnet.

Need to change the cam shaft position sensor but don't know where to find it on the van

the sensor is behind the lower pulley and the wire usually run down behine the water pump and serpintine belt. two bolts hold it on and it is best to degrease it first. You may want to remove the right front tire to get at it since it is basically right above the oil pan near the cam
