Tracy Hooks

What led you to change the camshaft sensor? Think "Fire Triangle" Fuel, Heat, Oxygen. Are you getting spark? Is the fuel pump delivering enough fuel pressure (40+ PSI)?, are there codes in the computer? Usually, air isn't a problem unless the cat is plugged or there's a rag in your intake - either will let the car run albeit poorly.
