year and engine will help in most topics, if you add it to your sig, it will help us, help you.

but the cam sensor will be just behind the water pump.
this is ser 1 pic, so if you have s2, it may differ slightly, but sensor will be in same location

Above your water pump in the timing chain cover. Kinda in between the PS pump and water pump, but a little above them.

Please put your year and trim level in your signature by editing your profile.

it will be a good idea to check in the hole where the sensor goes, to see if the magnet is still on the cam sprocket. you will need a little inspection mirror, and a 24mm socket to turn the crank.

Yea i was reading about the magnet breaking. I sure hope not:(

Is this fairly easy to do without getting it up in the air?
Or do I have to get to the sensor from the bottom rathar than the top?

you can get the sensor from the top. no lift necessary, just open the hood.

iirc, you will need a 10mm socket to remove the one bolt.

Wow..easy enough. My DSM is a whole other ballgame to work on....total bitch to get to stuff from the top sometimes and you have to jack it up and go from underneath.

Thanks a ton!

Check for the magnet if you like, but that'* an LN3 problem, not a Series 1 problem.
