The location of the cam position sensor (CMP) varies with the type of engine and ignition system. On Distributor systems, the cam sensor is integrated into the distributor; on other applications, it's on the front of the engine and reads off the cam sprocket. I think you may also want to look at your crank position sensor (may be transmission mounted to read off the fly wheel).

I cant find the info that tells me for sure. Being a pushrod engine. The camshaft is in the center of the block and the cam sprocket on the front above the crank sprocket. If you dont see a sensor in the location of the camshaft that should look like an ABS sensor then I would say that it is internal of the distributor.

When a crank sensor goes out. You will typically lose spark and injector pulse. Have you checked fuel pressure? You may need to check for a broken timing belt. Supposed to be changed every 60,000 miles on this model.

Were you able to watch the belt turn as someone tried to start it? Im guessing you may have just peeked at it. The teeth of the belt at the crank could be completely gone.

Ok, my guess is that the cam sensor is part of the distributor. Check to see if you can find the crank position sensor. It should be located either around the crank pulley. If not there then check around the bell housing area either in the front or the rear of the engine.

Upon further research we learned that our model does not have a crank sensor so we tried changing the ecm and still nothing our next question is if file pump is bad will it not spark or what other things should be looked at?

Ok, If your fuel pump went out you would still have spark. The MAP sensor is usually located somewhere on the intake. Look at your emission sticker that shows your vacuum routing and it should give you an idea of where it is.
