Without additional info as to your engine type, this cannot be diagnosed properly. The camshaft position sensor on "most" vehicles is located near or around the camshaft/valve cover. If you run into any issues I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose any issues and replace your camshaft position sensor as necessary.
