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,

SOURCE: replacing bad camshaft position sensor

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

SOURCE: I replaced my camshaft position sensor in my 2009 chevy cobalt..how do I fix the timing? It's still off.

for starters you should have set your number one piston at top dead center (TDC) before you just changed the sensor, All it need is to be one or two teeth out on the timing chain to run rough, here is a link to a guide on how to solve this problem , I hope it helps:

My kia carens 1.9 diesel is very sluggish from a cold start.After about 50 yds engine picks up .Why?


Replace fuel filter. Diesel motors in cold weather need to run for 10 to 15 minutes before you hit the road. To avoid worming up the engine for that long you need to install the block heater, plug it in every night and you will have no problems any more.
