So im getting a code for the camshaft position sensor code. i got it 2 weeks ago and i had it cleared bc i had no problems starting the car or anything but it came on tonight for the same thing. i have read some stories of people cars shuting off randomly or things similar to that i can drive my car for like 2 hour with no problems it dost go to limp mode and there are no preformance losses it drives normal. im ordeing the sensor tommorow but someone told me just to order a chain tensioner as well bc they normally go to but i dont know if thats the case. if you guys could help that would be great.

thanks mike
Ps the timing belt was done 10k ago by a shop and have had no problems so i doubt its a timing belt that slipped

I would still check the timing first before spending money on something stupid like a sensor or tensioner...If you do need a good cam chain tensioner I have one I can sell you fairly cheap.

I know you said 10k miles ago but the timing belt tensioners are known to fail rather fast so I wouldn't be at all surprised if that was the issue.
