Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
There is no 'camshaft sensor' per se, but there is a control module/ magnetic pickup in the base of the distributor which determines the position of the camshaft.

Ignition coil driver module
Crankshaft position (CKP) sensor
Now which part do you want to replace ?
Cap and rotor
Camshaft position sensor
Gear drive and shaft
The camshaft drives the distributor shaft which rotates providing a spark to the correct cylinder by way of the cap and rotor. The camshaft position (CMP) sensor functions much like the crankshaft sensor previously described but provides only a 1x signal to the VCM. That is, for every 2 rotations of the crankshaft, there is 1 rotation of the camshaft. Note that the camshaft position sensor will not affect driveability. The sole purpose of the camshaft position sensor is to provide the VCM with the necessary information for the misfire diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The camshaft position sensor is located inside the distributor. On some distributors, the camshaft position sensor is not serviceable (replacement parts may not be available separately). If the camshaft position sensor is serviceable, use the following procedure.
