Good afternoon folks. A co worker has a Chrysler 300 HEMI and said car died on him 4 times while heading to work Saturday. Used a scanner and code was camshaft position sensor. How to determine or test this as he is on vacation this week. Thanks in advance. Car has 124,xxx miles on it by the way. He does 4k ocis with M1 5w30 also and FRAM ULTRA filters

That's a cheap enough part that if you're DIY-ing I'd just throw a new one in (plus it's in a very convenient location on the passenger's side, front timing cover, top). While the CPS is out, look down the hole and breaker-bar the crank back and forth to see if you can observe any slack in the timing chain (significant crank rotation before the cam begins to rotate). If you see a lot of slack or If the code comes back, it might be time put in a timing chain and tensioner/snubbers. That's been an issue with a lot of the Gen3 Hemis, both the pre-Eagle engines and the Eagles up through 2012, though for different reasons. I hate to jump straight to that since it most likely is just the sensor.. but of course the consequence of letting the timing chain jump is... bad.
