I was driving down the highway and all of a sudden no gas pedal, I got pulled over to the side of the road and shut off car, not so sure that it was already off, I turned the key off. Waited a few minutes, no start. When I try to start it sounds like its not engaging only a fan like noise, towed him home and ran codes I got the P0011 code camshaft sensor. I googled all the symptoms and have seen very different results. I can still hear the fuel pump run when I open the door, so dont think that is the issue. I peeked in the Timing cover area and the belt is still intact and tight. Hoping that it is just the camshaft sensor. Any ideas?

I would start with some basics:

1. check the timing marks and see if they are all in time; possible timing belt or component failure (worst case scenario bent valves). Any teeth missing, belt loose, hydraulic tensioner leaking or idler pulleys bad/seized? When the valves are bent; there is no compression and your starter/engine will sound weird, turns faster and the engine won't start. Checking and alignment info:

2. check cam position sensor; we have had some members that they have broken inside. Testing and inspection info:

About the camshaft sensor...

A few months back, when "Hitler" was having limpmode problems, I got a camshaft sensor, and a crankshaft sensor from Amazon for a few bucks. They worked. Of course my big issue was the $1100. I spent on a defective throttle body, which I recently replaced for $99. from Amazon too.... It is running like a new one! I will never get all the labor I paid for back, but I will get a refund on the bad throttle body off the warranty. Good luck to you.

I will have a look at the timing marks when I get the next chance, I have already ordered a new camshaft sensor, what is the difference in camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensor, I read different things. I know where they are located but just making sure that the camshaft sensor, which is what the P0011 code is for. Thanks

Based upon the Wiki: looks like you need to test the Camshaft Adjustment Valve 1 (N205) valve:

Possible Solutions
Check Camshaft Adjustment Valve 1 (N205)
Check Fuel Pump Relay (J17)
Check Mechanical Timing
(check timing marks)
