What possessed you to replace the cam position sensor?  Have you scanned the card for codes?

I scanned and got a code referring to the camshaft sensor and changed the sensor behind the driver seat.

 

What code(s) did you find?

The code that I found was P0341

 

This is a good example of understanding what a code is telling you.  P0341 is for an implausible signal from the cam position sensor, and is most commonly a short or wiring problem rather than a bad position sensor.  The diagnostic steps for this code are all wiring harness circuit tests looking at voltages and circuit resistances. Rarely is it caused by the sensor itself.
