Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck
The Camshaft sensor is easily replaced. Just remove your distributor cap and rotor button, and there it is. Be careful however in removing this "Halls Effect" type magnetic switch for the wires leading out of the distributor fit into a groove in the side of the distributor. Quite often, I've found people in a hurry that will "chafe" the wires when installing the new camshaft sensor, so make sure you slide the wires from the sensor into the "U" shaped groove. About six inches from the distributor, you'll find the end that plugs into the Wiring Harness. Remove the old one and install the new one. If you're a perfectionist (like I tend to be)(smile), I always apply Di-Electric grease (found at most Auto Parts stores, for this is a Sensor and unwanted moisture or leaking electrical connections such as bad plug wires can lead to a false signal from the camshaft sensor to the computer, yielding in a No Start, a False Code, or Poor Gas Mileage. Just a suggestion.
Let me know if this works for you in understanding what I'm trying to explain here.
