What is the location of the camshaft position sensor

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If you are standing in front of the car, it is on the right side of the engine near the top. It is below the valve cover and bolts into the head with one bolt. If you need help having your camshaft position sensor installed or replaced, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your location to perform this repair.
