Its an 06 and throwing a cam sensor code. I'll assume it's a bad cam sensor. Which infact ot does have. If youre infront of the car lookin at the motor, you see the oil fill cap, thats the side the cam sensor is on. Its on the bottom side, above the oil line.


I looked at the air you said there is not a cam positioning sensor there I've even taking a photo and will upload it to show you


I have looked at all of those pictures of the positioning of the sensor and I'm telling you there's no sensor on the car for the the camshaft not on the back by the exhaust not on the front nothing I've looked at engine over completely I've called the dealer the only thing they can tell me is that they're going to have to bring it into them and do a Diagnostics on it to find out what other code is being put out there but thank you and for trying


I'm baffled how it'd be that new without a cam sensor. Especially if its throwing a cam code. Unless the motor has been swapped and its an older one.


That's the original motor I bought the car in 2006 with 20000 miles on it and had no problems until last month they but I don't know why it all everything shows that has cam sensors but that's one just doesn't have them anywhere on there I've checked on the bottom of checked on the top of the motor I've gone all the way in the back and check there's just no cam sensors it's got me confused to the only thing I can think of is the dealer done something different that the manufacturer on this one


Here is the up date the number 4 spark plug was loose causing the camshaft sensor to throw the code but there are no camshaft sensors on them.
