Default Camshaft sensor?

i went to auto zone because my car would not go more than 2,500 rpms. and the guy at auto zone ran a diagnostic check and he said it was the camshaft sensor, which is what the coomputer said it was. i already changed it and now it still does the same thing. anyone know what's going on?

i drive a 2007 n/a with 76,000 miles on it. please help

Most likely the camshaft sensor you bought is bad - buy a Mopar one - either online or direct from a dealer - many, many people have reported that replacement sensors didn't last or didn't work at all.
