camshaft position sensor?

Is there another name for this sensor I haven't been able to locate anything under this name at any of the parts places online?

just replaced mine a few weeks back and yes, the auto part stores computers do not call it that--try using ignition sensor-what it was found at o'rileys. also take note that there are several ones and of course i got the wrong one 1st. the difference was the connector so if you can take the old one with you, you may save your self a 2nd trip.

I just did mine yesterday bought at Oreilly's but a piece of advice the sensor alone was more than buying the cam shaft synchronizer that came with the new cam shaft sensor $65 for both. And my problem was the synchronizer. Ling crank times and rough ideal. And a very annoying noise that you would swear was a exhaust leak. Turns out the bushings in the synchronizer was the problem
