Is there a way to replace the cam position sensor aside from buying a whole new distributor on a 1996 Dodge Caravan 3.0?

It might just be the cam belt broke. <sigh>

yes you can change it without changing the distributor but the cost of the sensor is approx $425 from dodge i suggest getting a used distributor from a local junk yard for less than $75 if it is because of dtc 54 test wiring to the sensor first because you may end up cangeing it for nothing You can get the cam sensor from autodiscount for $47.00, you may want to do some resezrch in your local autoparts stores...

You can't, it's a non serviceable unit and you must replace the whole distributor.

It is built into the distributor and is not available without buying a distributor.

It is an integral part of the distributor. Changing the part is as expensive as buying another distributor. Just change the distributor, that way the whole piece gets some form of warranty where as the CPS(or CAS "cranks angle sensor") is usually considered a solo electrical part and has no warranty, what so ever.

It depends on what retailer or distributor you are buying from.Usually it cost $49.99.

firing order: 1-3-2-4 The distributor rotor turns counter-clockwise The cylinder layout is: 3 4 1 2 Front of car I recommend buying a distributor cap with the #1 position printed on it. A great one is the Standard Motor Products JH72 at rockauto dot com. It has all the cylinder numbers printed on it.
