i've been receiving conflicting information on what cam position sensor is affected by the p0344 code, intake or exhaust. the dealership has told me intake, some forums are saying intake and others exhaust. does anyone know for sure?

Check wiring before buying anything. CMP1/1 is the exhaust cam position sensor.

There are two Camshaft Position Sensors on the 2.0L (ECK) engine. The (1/1) Exhaust Camshaft Position Sensor (2) is mounted to the front face of the cylinder head on the same side as the exhaust camshaft. The (1/2) Intake Camshaft Position Sensor (1) is mounted to the rear face of the cylinder head on the same side as the intake camshaft. Both sensors are located nearest the number four cylinder end of the engine. Both sensor connectors have three wires.
