SOURCE: location of cam position senor
Not a bad job to replace the cam position sensor, it took about two hours cost about $150.00 with oem parts. First remove air filter box,remove plastic spark plug cover. Jack up engine about an inch remove engine mount. Now you can access sensor through a convenient cover that mounts around engine mount bracket extending from engine block.( one ten millimeter bolt) Remove accessory drive belt for a little extra room and replace with new one while you are in there. Just between the two cam gears you will see a torx screw that aligns the switch when in installed. DO NOT REMOVE THIS Just above the torx screw is a reverse torx screw (6 millimeter) Put a shop rag in the access hole to catch the screw just in case you drop it ,( so it does not fall into timing belt cover) Put something "sticky" in the 6 millimeter socket such as gasket sealer to keep from losing screw. remove. Pull switch up from inside spark plug cover and install new one through the same. reinstall 6 millimeter bolt. Switch is self aligning. Reinstall belt, engine mount, air box. Doing this myself probably saved me about $150.00 to $200.00 dollars

Most likely cause of this is a clogged thermostat. Especiallly if you've ever used a sealer in the past, the thermostat clogs with age and a bad thermostat will tend to back up and fill your reservoir tank. Best of luck with this situation and I hope you've found this post a solution to your problem. All the best!

They have been doing well and there problems are fewer than most. Sounds like you have a pretty good car. Have those trouble codes checked and repaired though so it does'nt cause problems down the road. Good luck.

Your car is from 2006 how come it needs a timing belt ( do you drive 20K per year? ). What is wrong with the drive belt. The sound from belt is not a clicking noise.
Any way try to avoid that dealer. What a baloney.
When you start the car, open the hood try to identify where the noise comes from.
1-If it comes from the top engine, open your oil cap, to see if oils splattered from mechanical movements. Usually oil is not enough then it takes time to travel to the cam shaft and the lifters that why after making noise a while then the engine becomes quite since it gets lubricated. How long have you been from last oil changed?
2-If it comes from the front engine try to identify if it comes from Power steering or AC. Check Power-steering fluid to see it it needs filled up. Check this before starting the engine.
Try to turn on AC to see if the noise more or less so you can determine the AC clutch is bad.
Hope you can find the source for a good fix.

Check if the kill switch is engaged. Check for faulty starter solenoid or disconnected solenoid wire. Check for defective ignition switch. Check for defective starter motor.
