The cam angle sensor in your vehicle is mounted on your cylinder head and usually near the camshafts, or the cam gears. Some engines like the 2JZ and FA10 mount the cam angle sensor on the side of the cylinder head. This is usually a hall effect sensor that reads the high and low parts of the machined cam shaft or the teeth of your cam gear.
The cam angle sensor can go by many names, so don't get confused. Camshaft position sensor or camshaft angle sensor are other names for the cam angle sensor.
When testing your camshaft position sensor, most people are looking for the reason as to why their car is not starting or has intermittent ignition problems. As the camshaft position sensor provides a real time positioning of the engine to the PCM, this is a very important reading for your vehicle.
