Default Egr system ?

Recently my 006 touring 5 speed started acting eratic stumbling jerking movement engine light on. Checked no codes read what seemed to be something in the egr system pvc ck ok. Thought cam sensor? Went to auto zone .was ready to remove original sensor then noticed both shifter cables loosely with no bushings and on clips
Went to local dealer they had none recommend. Dorman bushings. Careful parts department will try to sell you a complet cable 400.00 no thanks bought bushings at napa 15.48 with military discount part # 620-1410 bought e-clips at Lowe's part #138751 1/4 inch installed smaller bushing easy large bushing couldn't make it fit so i sanded. Down some then it fit good and tight with clip
Maybe another brand would fit easier? Shouldn't have to do that. Anyway car runs and shifts great also engine light is off great news. Ca smog ck comming soon
Anyway just wanted to share don't know if i should keep cam sensor?

A 2006 PT has no EGR system. A failing camshaft position sensor will usually throw a code and then cause the car to go into "limp home mode" where it will only run at limited RPM's. Since these sensors do sometimes fail on PT era Mopars, having a spare with you is never a bad idea.
