You can most likely find a guide at a local auto parts store like NAPA or Autozone, try Autozone first or Advanced Auto Parts if you have one, they are usually pretty good about carrying guides like that.

It takes a special tool. I got mine from Autozone and had a guide from them on how to replace it. You'll have to remove the belt and harmonic balancer and access it through the passanger side front tire.

The cam sensor is located in the distributor. The cost of a distributor is about $250.00 and up. get the cam sensor checked first, then if needed, replace. Use a Haynes Manual or something else to guide you thru the replacement process. It's easy to do.

The gps global positioning system can guide you by locating your positon and then it would guide you to the position that you had requested to get to.
