Default Camshaft position sensor dead

The car doesn't start and it misfires and its throwing fire threw the trottle, Timing belt in place, ignition working properly, fuel system perfect and every sensor in its place. The only thing that could be causing the problem in my opinion is the camshaft position sensor and cause of that the ignition fires out of time. Any opinion or ideas!!!

the sensor is about 25 dollars. I doubt that is it. I had this same problem. I really thought it was that too, but it was the belt out of time. It is very easy to mis-time a subaru timing belt. This usually origionates because there are 2 aarows on the main pully, and often times people look at the wrong one which will put it about 90 degrees out.

I honestly question your timing belt, despite the fact you say its right. I would check it again.

YOu can line up all your marks, and pull out spark plug #3. If timed correctly, Piston 3 will be at Top Dead Center at this point

Contrary to how most engines are built, Subaru times off #3 at TDC instead of #1.

btw, if you are condeming the Cam Position sensor because you used a scan tool, a mistimed belt will throw the SAME code.
