Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus
The camshaft sensor is positioned on the end of the cylinder head. The
camshaft signal is generated from a camshaft gear. The sensor is a hall
effect switch meaning that a magnet passes over the sensor energizing
the sensor creating the signal. A common problem on these vehicles is
that the magnet becomes damaged giving an intermittent signal. Remove
the cam sensor and crank the engine over by hand and inspect the magnet
for damage. If the magnet is ok, you will need a Scan Tool to monitor
the signal to determine the problem. In most cases, it's just a broken
magnet and not the sensor itself.
Remove the negative battery cable. Disconnect the PCV hose and reposition.
Disconnect electrical connectors from the camshaft position sensor.
Remove camshaft position sensor mounting screws. Remove sensor. Loosen screw attaching target magnet to rear of camshaft and remove magnet.
The target magnet has locating dowels that fit into machined locating holes in the end of the camshaft.
