The camshaft position sensor (also known as the distributor pickup) is inside the distributor which is driven by the camshaft gear and directly below the water pump, the water pump must be removed to access the distributor to change the sensor. Here is a picture of the camshaft position sensor. emissionwiz_90.jpg
