cam sensor is only half of the cam circuit, the other half of the cam circuit is the magnet on the timing chain. the cam sensor reads from the magnet every time the engine completes a revolution,
what happens is the magnet on the chain will break into smaller piece which makes the sensor harder to read every time the engine make a complete revolution.
most likely you'll need to replace the timing chain to fix this.

Un bolt it pull it out. Most likely it will be a bad magnet on the cam sprocket. Over time they will fall apart. The timing cover will need to come off to repair along with the cam gear.

How do your repair the heater in 1998 olds regency? The temperature readout flashes, the temperature gauge on the dash is not working, it blows hot out of one vent on bilevel setting.

Sounds like the heater control unit is going bad. I believe this unit has a digital/vacuum control unit which explains why you are only getting hot out of one vent. Try the salvage yard or ebay for a replacement unit. They are non-repairable...
