Question about 2002 Saturn Sl
I got a diagnostic done on my sat from auto zone and they said its the camshaft position sensor where can i get this fixed and how much will it cost
I hate to tell you this, but there is not Camshaft Position Sensor on any 1.9L Single or Dual OHC. I assume you had someone read a Diagnostic Trouble Code from your PCM. They probably told you that you needed a Camshaft Position Sensor, and then offered to sell you one. I would recommend changing your spark plugs and your plug cables with FACTORY REPLACEMENTS. This will usually make the DTC go away. Aftermarket plugs and wires rarely work well for this engine. If you are looking for a CRANKSHAFT position sensor, look between the engine and transmission on the back side of the transmission. It is also known as the "transmission input speed sensor". More often than not though, your engine will not fire up if the Crank position sensor is not working. Hope this helps.

Yes there is a such thing as a camshaft position sensor, for gods sake they sell the replacement part! It's location is hard to get to as it's located behind the starter, I've replaced two of them so far failing after only about 30k miles use. From what I read Saturn's often have these fail and symptoms are car running until warmed up and then shutting off and not restarting until it cools down again.
