Where to locate and how to change CamShaft Position Sensor in 2008 2.7L 6 cylinder Dodge Avenger?

Asked by May 21, 2013 at 09:26 PM about the 2008 Dodge Avenger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I've been experiencing trouble with my vehicle, a 2008 Dodge Avenger, for awhile now. After numerous trips to the dealership to figure out and fix the problem, the technicians were finally able to discover that it's a bad camshaft position sensor. I bought a replacement, as I didn't want to have to pay the dealership $200 plus to replace it. However, I'm unable to locate where in the engine the camshaft position sensor is located, and I can't find a single source online to help point the way. Any help at all would be very much appreciated, but please be descriptive so that I know what to look for exactly. Thanks very much.
