Hi all,
I have a 00 Dak SLT V8. An engine fault light pops on and off very randomly. Diagnstics say it is a camshaft position sensor. A studder in the engine (at any engine RPM)(very brief and hardly happens) when the light comes on seems to confirm that.

I have already priced the part at 61.00 at the Dodge dealer. I've done some research on this and I've read about spacing being crucial and making sure to shim the sensor on some years due to over-machining.

How hard is this project? Any additional advice? Thanks alot!!

i woudl say it is some what diffcult, i had to do one on my fathers 2000 r/t and i was cussing everyone from dr.z on down, the spacing is crutical. i hate to say it but i would take it to a repair shop that knows dodge trucks. now i would also check out krc performace, if i remeber correctly they have a mod you can do to also help with the fatcory sluggish pick up on all gen 3 dakota's with the pushrods motors.
