Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Check lightcame on and car is jerking on exceleration. did a diagnostoc and auto zone they say its the cam 2 sensor. is that something i can do on my own? how hard is it to get to?
The sensor will run you about $30. It's a relatively easy change.
Disconnect and remove the battery (removing it gives you more room to work).
Once the battery is removed and you move some of the wires out of the way you'll see a square looking sensor about 3"X3". It is fastened to the engine with four 8mm bolts. Remove the 4 bolts and pull the sensor away from the engine. A small amount of oil will spill out so be ready to wipe with a rag. Remove the electrical connection and disgard the old sensor. Installation is the reverse. You'll want to put a light coating of clean engine oil on the seal of the new sensor so it seals properly without a leak.
Here's a link with a diagram of its position:
