Hello, what engine codes were you getting, do you remember the exact number? It's possible you got a bad part, it has been happening a lot, or it could have been a circuit code and a wiring issue.
Is this the type of cam sensor you replaced? With an adjustable hold down bolt?
Here is the OEM wiring diagram for the camshaft position sensor. It is a hall effect type sensor, so it will have a 12v feed, a signal wire (going to ECM) and a sensor ground (also going to ECM). Also added is the connector pinout for the sensor. The Ignition timing is adjustable on this model according to service information, but to set base timing a scan tool is needed to turn On Fixed Spark parameter (meaning put the engine into base timing). And then adjust with a timing light to 5 degrees. I'm not sure why they don't have a manual way of setting base timing.
