Default Camshaft and crankshaft

I have 2005 PT Cruiser Conv Touring Edition with turbo.

I have a check engine light that says to replace CMP sensor.

Where is Camshaft Position sensor located?
Does target magent behind CMP sensor also need to be replaced at same time?

Also will do crankshaft, Where is crankshaft position sensor located?

Cam sensor is on driver side on the end of head. It's black and round with two 8 mm bolts and a connector. Magnet usually OK. About a ten minute job. The other one is under the starter in the front a lot more work. Not sure the best approach. They don't fail near as much as the other one. Most people here prefer OEM rather than aftermarket. Just throw the cam sensor in and see if you have any more problems.

thanks
I replaced the camshaft sensor, easy after I found it. I did NOT replace crankshaft sensor, too much of a pain to get to and check engine code was specifically for camshaft.

Car runs MUCH smoother now at idle and at acceleration. check engine light did go out, so all is good.

One note, I seam to have lost some horsepower. Is that possible?

I did use after market part from Autozone.

Aftermarket sensors don't seem to last very long. Proven fact from those who used them. Wouldn't think you would lose anything from them. Keep an eye out for the same symptoms you had before, then try a genuine MOPAR sensor.
