A camshaft position sensor does not exist on a 1.9L Saturn of any kind. It is simply a code the ECU whips up when there is a problem somewhere in the ignition. Could be anything from spark plugs to where it all begins. I would start by checking your spark plugs, then wires, then coils, then the module the coils sit on, and any connections in between. Should find the problem, but sometimes it can be more complicated.

The 1998 Saturn SL2 will show a code 340 and 341 for a camshaft position sensor because this part is also considered the crankshaft position sensor on the Saturn. The location of the crankshaft position sensor is behind the alternator on a 1998 Saturn SL2. Both crankshaft and camshaft are the same thing This vehicle is not equipped with a camshaft position sensor. Saturn is the only manufacture that uses a auto pulse generated inside the ignition control module in conjunction with the pulse received from the crankshaft position sensor to determine ignition and injection timing. If you have a code for camshaft position sensor the issue is with the pulse generator in the ignition control module.
