Replaced camshaft sensor multiple times but computer still reads error?!

Asked by Feb 14, 2016 at 04:09 AM about the 2002 Mazda Protege5 4 Dr ES Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My check engine light keeps coming on and the computer reads a camshaft
sensor error. I have had the sensor replaced three times and nothing changes.
The car also intermittently slows down, it feels as if something is impeding the
fuel flow or something like that, and then it gives a jump forward and returns to
running normally. I've had it at the mechanics repeatedly with no luck. Any
thoughts?

I'm thinking the crank shaft sensor, I'm supersized they didn't look at this since the two (cam & crank sensors) communicate together.
