the timing is good..from what i can tell it needs a new cpm..guessing that is the computer..checking the junk yards for a used one now..what's a good price for one of those? and also will it have to be programmed to my car? thanks again for your assistance! it's been a great car..it has 360,000 miles on it..best car i've ever owned.

you might have to programmed to your car because your car has a anti tefht divice on the stearing colum, also if you go to a u-pull it junkyard it should be around $100 or less.

Help! I am having the same problem with my 2004 Dodge Neon. The timing went in 2007-fixed. This year the heads needed replacing-fixed. Cam sensor code keeps appearing, replaced twice. Car runs smooth , sounds great, but twenty minutes down the road its starts hestitating -like its got a bad fuel problem. Any ideas as to what it is? A qualified mechanic has it and I also have had the timing looked at by 3 diffrent people and all is in sync. Its not out of gas and the computer as also been changed

lhprince, make sure a Chrysler Cam sensor is installed. I had 2 aftermarket sensors in my 2003 and they would throw the check engine light after about 5 minutes of run time. The aftermarket sensors operate outside the proper parameters for the computer, but the car will run.
