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.


INSTALLATION
The target magnet has locating dowels that fit into machined locating holes in the end of the camshaft.

  1. Install target magnet in end of camshaft. Tighten mounting screw to 3 Nm (30 in. lbs.) torque. Over torqueing could cause cracks in magnet. If magnet cracks replace it.
  2. Install camshaft position sensor. Tighten sensor mounting screws to 12.9 Nm (115 in. lbs.) torque.
  3. Carefully attach electrical connector to camshaft position sensor. Installation at an angle may damage the sensor pins.
  4. Connect the PCV Valve hose.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

I did a diagnostic test at home on my 04 Dodge Stratus and it said something about a camshaft malfunction/failure. Can u tell me how much getting that fix cost? Or how much a camshaft cost?


That would be a cam shaft sensor issue .The cost of the sensor is about $65 With about .8 hours of labor .So for about $150 you can have the sensor installed :)
