Check air filter clean throttle body, replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while and add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank. Also clean Idle Air Control Valve if vehicle has one or mass air flow sensor.

Check the ( ETCS ) Electronic Throttle Control System- Fuse. Should be in the fuse box under the hood.

Sorry about the first answer thought I was answering another problem someone was having with their vehicle.

What does that ETCS have to do with the cam sensor and if you unplug the cam sensor the car will start but you can't go over 3000 RPMS ?

Just finished answering a question that a young lady had the same problem with her vehicle and she did the same thing as you did unplugged the cam sensor and it started but still ran bad. Did not no what to tell her at that time but she got back with me and told me that she had figured it out and it was that fuse. She said she replaced that fuse and car runs great now. Just passing on some information that may or may not fix your problem.
