Does camshaft affect performance on a Cadillac Cimarron?

How much does the Cadillac Cimarron camshaft rotate in relation to a full crank rotation?

The camshaft rotates at half the speed or revolutions as the crankshaft. So for every 360 degrees of rotation for the crankshaft the camshaft(s) only rotate 180 degrees. 4 stroke engines rotate 2 times for a complete cycle. That means it takes 720 crank degrees to make a full cycle.

I wish there was more information online about this. Did the ones you replace fix the error? I have a 2008 Saturn Vue XR but it looks exactly the same and it's been ... me. I've replaced 3 now but still the error came back and I realized I missed one.
camshaft sensors and camshaft adjusters related?? Because I was told my camshaft sensors need to be replace and camshaft adjusters.

I have the same 59500 setup. Did you notice more valvetrain noise too? I'm concerned about the louder mechanical ticking after several valve lash adjustments. Revs high very nicely though.
You are the best my friend god bless you.

I am trying to get the tensioner with the new pads in place CORRECTLY as a unit, per instructions supplied by ... its just not working for me. Hoping that you have any advice? I have been working on audis for quite some time and have graduated from my local JC with a degree in automotive technology and I am still baffled! any help is great!
why this change takes to more power?
Nice job! The 'stock z6' conversation is so dam stupid ;)
vad är motor storleken på denna? 2.0?
My diagnostic tool shows a 324 code on the A2 position. The car does start fine, but MAF sensor is bad. I wonder of this might be an old code since I have not been able to clear the codes. Can not get a good connection on the B1 and B6 positions, so codes won't show or clear.
