Hello - I don’t wish to insult anyone, but there are 2 camshaft position sensors on that engine. Any chance the same sensor was replaced twice? That would certain cause the scenario you describe. If both sensors have now been replaced, I would check wiring and connectors carefully, and also consider checking the crankshaft position sensor. As you mention, there could also be an issue with the cam position gear misbehaving. I recommend a rough running inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
