Today my 2010 SXT started throwing this code (P0365) and my reader shows it as Camshaft Position Sensor. I googled it because typically sensors are an easy fix, but all I could find was crankshaft sensor information. Does anyone know where I can find the camshaft sensor and if it's something I can do easily? I moved cross country so I'm short a garage now :cry:

I hope you are using what came with it and not aftermarket parts. NKT/ NKG are the most common OE parts used by Mother Mopar.

I got a sensor from autozone, gave up trying to do it myself and brought it to a garage today. They told me they fixed it up, charged me for it and then I took up off the road. Car maxed out at 30 mph so I turned right back around to bring it back. No idea what's going on

Sorry to hear that. Sounds like another case of just do what the owner wants and nothing more. There are other things to check beyond just changing a sensor per code number. Like checking the wires to it and also noting for other possible causes, like with the VVT system oil control solenoid(s) for the cam phasers. And on quick code look up, the Crank sensor could also be bad. Testing voltages and resistances before condemning a particular sensor will save MONEY and heartache.
Keep us "in the loop" as to how things go for you and ride. :)

This has got to me the most confusing problem with my car so far. We ended up putting the old sensor back in since it worked better than the new one and the code and CEL went away. I went to visit family over the weekend and it essentially maxed out at 3,000 rpm on the highway but would still go up in speed when I hit the gas. (I had to almost floor it though for any increase in speed.) It turns out that I'm ALSO leaking transmission fluid, I believe it's just from a bad gasket though. Could this have been the cause of the weird highway driving?
