GOT AN ERROR CODE FOR THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR REPLACED BOTH THE CAM SENSOR AND THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR CAR WILL NOT START WITH BOTH CONNECTED BUT WILL START IF I DISCONNECT THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR. THE CAR TAKES ABOUT 8 SECONDS TO CRANK OVER AND START, WHEN DRIVING UNDER THESE CONDITIONS THE CAR BUCKS AT AROUND 3000 RPM. IF I DRIVE IT UNDER 3000 RPM THE TRANSMISSION WILL SHIFT NORMALLY. ANY IDEAS AS TO WHAT MAY BE CREATING THIS PROBLEM.

Turn ignition switch on and measure the voltages on the three wires of the camshaft sensor plug when it's not plugged in. Find the wire with 8 volts. Back-probe the same wire and watch the voltmeter as you plug the connector into the sensor. If the 8 volts drops or goes to 0 volts, the sensor is shorted. That also kills the same 8 volts to the crankshaft position sensor.
