have 318 engine. Will crank over but not run. Checked computer codes and tells me Camshaft position sensor A Bank 1 circuit malfunction.
I have changed the wires, cap, rotor and crankshaft position sensor. So far still no spark, got fuel. I have 108,000 mls.
Called dealer and told me I don't have a camshaft position sensor, change the crank sensor.

Anybody have any ideas?

your scanner is not confused but your dealer should know this what your scanner calls the cam sens is actually your pickup coil in your distributor dont try to repace it just buy a dist

Why replace the whole distributor, vs. just the pick up coil

Just wanted to thanx vrooks for the info. It turned out to be the pick up coil in the distributor and she is purring fine again. Turned out somehow two of the 3 wires were broke.
