SOURCE: camshaft sensor
Do you know if the engine timing is correct? If you get the timing a tooth out you very similar issues, has the cambelt been replaced recently - or is it over due??
Another posibility is the cam chain adjuster. This is oil pressure fed and I think controled by a solnoid, it applies a force between the chain that drives the inlet camshaft from the cambelt driven exhaust camshaft. (Making any sense? Let me know if you want me to simplify) This operating correctly advances and retards the valve timing, when faulty it can make it incorrect. Non start is a fault caused, but more often they become very noisey.
The cam chain adjuster is fed oil when the car is started, you can breifly here it before it has reached operating pressure on normal start up, sounds like a diesel knock for a second, then goes, this is normal. If it continues, its more than likely faulty.
Let me know if you want any more info. If the sensor and wiring is good you'll probably have a timing issue.
