should I replace camshaft position sensor?

Asked by Dec 21, 2015 at 08:36 PM about the 1999 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my daughter has a 1999 saturn and all of a sudden it just randomly wont
start, there is power it just sometimes wont turn over but if it sits for about
twenty min or so it turns over like there was no problem.. took it to
advanced auto and they tested it and said it came back stating it was the
camshaft positioning sensor... as I look around I see that someplaces say
that would not be case and that it could be as simple as replacing plugs...
Help! it is my daughters first car and has run great up until this point ... now
I cant even let her take it until I figure this out and do something any
expertise would be greatly appreciated...
