    the sensor is under the timing belt cover at the top of the engine. If you are looking at the engine you’ll see a black strip covering your spark plugs, your electrical connection on the camshaft position sensor is under there go ahead and disconnect the sensor. Next is the removal of the timing belt cover. You will need to take the bolts holding the cover in place they will hold it all the way down to the bottom of the engine. The bolt in the center top section is actually the bolt holding the sensor in place inside the engine so you will need to look and see how to maneuver the sensor out after the bolt is removed. Replace with new sensor and replace bolts. Plug electrical connector into the top of the sensor and replace spark plug cover. You are now done.
    This sensor is important to your rodeo because if this sensor is not working then the vehicle will not start or run because it relies on the sensor to operate.

    I’m not familiar with that model. Some cam sensors are at the front of the engine. Some are under the valve cover.
    My suggestion would be, to call the store that sold you the sensor and ask them or call a dealership. Usually they are glad to help.

    taking your car to part store to scan your vehicle only show you what circuit is bad. it does not indicate the sensor is bad. you have to check to see if the wire is bad or broken for the circuit, bad solder inside the computer, or a bad computer. to test the sensor, you need a lab scope for accuracy. the the camshaft sensor is located behind the timing belt cover next to the camshaft.
