DODGE STRATUS SENSOR PROBLEM

2006 Dodge Stratus • 100,000 miles

How do you change the Camshaft sensor on a 2006 Dodge Stratus. I believe the engine is a 2.4.

CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR

The camshaft position sensor is mounted to the end of the cylinder head.

Remove the negative battery cable.
Disconnect the PCV hose and reposition.

Cam Sensor/EGR Valve/PCV Valve

Disconnect electrical connectors from the camshaft position sensor.
Remove camshaft position sensor mounting screws. Remove sensor.

Target Magnet Removal/Installation

Loosen screw attaching target magnet to rear of camshaft and remove magnet.

INSTALLATION

Target Magnet Installation

The target magnet has locating dowels that fit into machined locating holes in the end of the camshaft.

Install target magnet in end of camshaft. Tighten mounting screw to 3 N.M (30 in. Lbs.) Torque. Over torqueing could cause cracks in magnet. If magnet cracks replace it.
Install camshaft position sensor. Tighten sensor mounting screws to 13 N.M (115 in. Lbs.) Torque.
Carefully attach electrical connector to camshaft position sensor. Installation at an angle may damage the sensor pins.
Connect the PCV Valve hose.
