Where is the camshaft position sensor located in my 06 dodge magnum? And is there anything special i may need to know in order to replace it myself?


The camshaft position sensor, it is on the passenger side in the front on the engine block, it will have a grey connector attached.

To replace:

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove 10mm bolt and remove camshaft sensor.
Unplug sensor, apply dielectric grease to new sensor and plug in, apply a small amount of grease to o-ring, replace into block and tighten bolt.
Reconnect battery cable....that's it, your done.

My car is not pumping oil a 1997 Ford Taurus I replaced the oil pump


Im guessing you need to replace the gear on the camshaft position sensor! it also drives the oil pump. its a common failure its made of plastic or fiber. im sure you also have a camshaft position sensor code. replace that gear and hopefully your motor is ok! good luck!

Change cam position sensor chy


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the electrical harness connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  3. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting bolt. There is a hole in the bracket for tool access to the sensor mounting bolt.
  4. Rotate the sensor away from the engine block.
  5. Pull the camshaft position sensor up out of the chain case cover. Do not pull on the sensor wire.
There is an O-ring on the sensor case. The O-ring may make removal of the sensor difficult. A light tap on top of the sensor prior to removal may reduce the force needed for removal. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace if necessary.
To install:
If the sensor removed is going to be re-installed, clean off the old spacer on the sensor face. A new spacer must be attached to the sensor face before installation. If the sensor is being replaced, be sure that a paper spacer is attached to the sensor face and an O-ring is positioned in the groove of the new sensor.
  1. Apply 1-2 drops of clean engine oil to the O-ring prior to installing the sensor.
  2. Install the sensor into the chain case cover and rotate into position.
  3. Push down on the sensor until contact is made with the camshaft gear. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the mounting bolt to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  4. Attach the electrical harness connector to the camshaft position sensor.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
