    just one other question for you can this cause your vehicle to run rough and at a very low speed in certain gears and the motor to power down? let me explain this started running rough for bout a month and then got harder to shift and the motor started running real low and now when we start the vehicle and try to put it in drive to move it the motor powers down real low and the lights dim out and the van will move but only at a low speed of 15-20 mph at best can this problem becaused by the powering down low in the motor or would that part be transmission or should i stick with the sensor first and go from there?

If not repaired,your vehicle will run rough,then be hard to start,get out of time,and eventually cause the engine to low. the camshaft sensor is fairly cheap and takes about 15min to install.

    tes,this can cause exactly whats your going thru. i would start with that sensor,as thats a given. if you live close to an autozone,try and get it there,and they will hook up to your onboard computer and tell you exectly whats wrong. most shops charge a 100 for this service, but autozone does it for free.

When my 92 chev van Lumina gets warm it stalls and won't start till It cools down. What could the problem be.

You'll need to get more information. Find an auto parts store that offers free engine code readouts and have them tell you what the engine computer has detected. This will shorten the long list of possible causes. Post again with the results - you may get to post your own solution.
I've had a bad fuel injector driver transistor in the computer (throttle body injection) and an ignition module do this to me.
