SOURCE: Cam Shaft Sensor Problems
Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.

your attempting to try a job that you really shouldn't try,
the steering column will have to be dropped,the entire dash comes out of car,the AC needs vacumed down and disconnected,and that just gets you to the heater box assembly,your still another hour away from seeing a heater core .when we did these jobs at the dealers with all the tools available to us,it was a 12 hour job,then you have to recharge the AC yet

disconnect the negative battery cable. the cmp sensor is located on the left end of the cylinder head. move thebrake booster hose and electrical wires out of the way to access the cmp sensor. disconnect the sensor plug by pushing the locking tab back toward the firewall. remove the 4 bolts from sensor and lift out sensor. remove the trox bolt which holds the target magnet to camshaft. when installing target magnet be sure to line up holes to dowels on end of camshaft. torque torx bolt to 30 in-lbs. be sure to install new o-ring on sensor and torque bolts to 80 in-lbs.

The starter is located right smack dabb in the front of the engine, half way down behind the radiator, it's plainly visible.
The easiest way to get it out of the car is to remove the battery and the battery holder, along with the radiator fan on that side. With all that removed it is just a matter of undoing the two mounting bolts. The lower of the two you will have to get from underneath. Make sure you have a couple different extensions and a universal joint and you should be fine. I tried following the instruction in the book and found out a better way. With the fan on the battery side out the starter came out easily. Plan for two to three hours of work on it.

Camshaft Position Sensor-On top of engine
The Engine Management System (EMS) uses the camshaft position sensor to manage sequential fuel injection and as part of misfire diagnosis. The EMS constantly monitors the number of pulses on the signal circuit. The EMS compares the number of camshaft sensor reference pulses and the number of crankshaft position sensor reference pulses received. If the EMS receives an incorrect number of pulses, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) should be stored in the EMS. Some engine management systems will then default to multi-port or "gang-fire" injector operation. The camshaft position sensor signal is required to sequence the injector operation to the proper cylinder timing. If the camshaft position sensor or circuit is faulty, most engines will start. However, the EMS misfire diagnostic will likely be affected.
The following symptoms can be caused by an intermittent wiring connections or faulty signal to the EMS.
