I believe that what you need is a new distributor. The cam sensor is built into the distributor on these I believe. One thing you can do is take off the distributor cap and see if there is any oil in there....I have seen the distrubutor shaft seal leak and get oil into the electrical pick-up (cam sensor) and cause it to stall and/or not start. Replaced the distributor on my mother in law's 97 altima and fixed it. Hope this helps.
