Re: how to change cam positiom sensor in 2000 dodge
The cam position sensor on the 2.7 engine is on the
driver side of your engine, right in the front of the head. there's a 10mm bolt. undo the bolt and pull it straight out. push the new one into the hole, and hold pressure on it until it's bolted back in.
If you have the 3.5, the cam position sensor is located on top of the timing cover. I just unbolt the upper intake just enough to lift it up a little. unbolt the cam sensor, pull it out and install the new one keeping pressure on it until it's bolted in.

There is a recall on some intrepids for the cam position sensor. You may have to change the cam sensor, if you don't have a code for it, don't change it. You might have to go to the dealer and have them flash your computer with a scan tool. that may be covered under the recall. I would investigate if I were you.
it might be the cam shaft sensor it might be the crank shaft sensor the best thing to do is replace them bolth. but it does sound like it may be either one because if one goes out the other will still work but when starting the car it will take longer for it to read from either or the one sensor that is still working because they work together to tell the system to deliver the gas. im pretty positive that it is either the cam or crank shaft sensor
dear friend-if you are positive that all the repairs were carried out with great care,that the timing is right,and you got spark and fuel,all the valves close propely,then it should start,if the sensor was ok before you stripped the engine why should it be faulty now.
