The cam sensor is located just above the water pump in the center of the motor behind the power steering pump. The sensor is replaced by removing the power steering pump for access. There is one connection and one hold down bolt for it. If you'd like to have an expert do this for you, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to replace the camshaft sensor.
