My check engine light cam on recently-Took truck to Autozone to get it checked-Cannot remember the code error #. But its the camshaft position sensor is bad. Does anyone know exactly where it is located on the engine? I have looked to no avail..Any help would be appreciated ...Thanks

Back of motor, passenger side, may need to remove upper intake to get at it.

just changed mine yesterday actually. you can get to it without taking anything else off with a wobble extension and a 5.5mm socket. just crack the 2 screws loose and the plug and it'll come right off.

I have looked in that area. Still do not see anything that resembles the part. A picture would be wonderful!!

gotta see it with your fingers. follow the wiring harness in under the upper intake manifold and you'll find it. theres 2 little bolts that hold it on.
