I have a 2001 Dodge Durango 4…7 V8 Magnum SLT and it was throwing a code for the throttle position sensor and was running very rough. I replaced that and now it's showing the camshaft position sensor is bad. Where is this located and how would I get to it to replace the sensor?
I'm sorry, I'm not really good with working on vehicles but I can't afford a mechanic at the moment...
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time!

REMOVAL - 4.7L
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 4.7L V–8 engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head (Fig. 7).
It is easier to remove/install sensor from under vehicle.
(1) Raise and support vehicle.
(2) Disconnect electrical connector at CMP sensor (Fig. 7).
(3) Remove sensor mounting bolt (Fig. 7).
(4) Carefully twist sensor from cylinder head.
(5) Check condition of sensor o-ring.


INSTALLATION - 4.7L
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 4.7L V–8 engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head (Fig. 7).
(1) Clean out machined hole in cylinder head.
(2) Apply a small amount of engine oil to sensor o-ring.
(3) Install sensor into cylinder head with a slight rocking action. Do not twist sensor into position as damage to o-ring may result.
CAUTION: Before tightening sensor mounting bolt, be sure sensor is completely flush to cylinder head.
If sensor is not flush, damage to sensor mounting tang may result.
(4) Install mounting bolt and tighten to 12 N·m (106 in. lbs.) torque.
(5) Connect electrical connector to sensor.
(6) Lower vehicle.
