Smile Looking for a Cam Shaft Sensor...

Anyone know where I can get a new Cam Shaft Sensor for my 1999 MB Slk230k? Or wants to trade one for a new Crankshaft sensor and some extra $$$?

Thanks,
Katherine

Best bet would be to get a new one from the dealer. Not sure if i would trust a used one.

If you are talking about the cam adjuster on the front of the block and it is leaking oil you need to check with the dealer. Two years ago MB sent a notice to the dealers if any one came in and it was leaking oil to replace it free of charge and put in a wire patch. You need to check to see if you are in the group for this free fix. I had a 2001 230 and they replaced mine free of charge.

Ya I definitely would not trust a used one. Only a new one. I am talking about the Cam Position Sensor. My car has been misfiring and the check engine light has been intermittent. I have been getting pretty horrible gas mileage, and I need to fix it before I go back to college in January because of the commute.
