Just has to be stuck unless someone put some sealer on it.. Have you tried grabing it with a channel lock pliers to see if you can rotating it a little and see if it breaks loose?

wd-40 should help, let it sit awhile. then, like mentioned, try twisting and pulling at the same time.

make sure you pull it out straight, if you pull it on an angle it's only going to resist more.

I'll throw this How-To in too:

3.5L Engine

See Figures 12 and 13


Fig. 12: The camshaft position sensor is installed in the timing case cover above the left camshaft sprocket-3.5L engine




Fig. 13: The paper spacer is located on the end of the sensor-3.5L engine



The camshaft position sensor is installed in the timing case cover above the left camshaft sprocket.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Disconnect the electrical wiring to the sensor.

Remove the camshaft position sensor mounting screw.

Pull the sensor up and out of the timing chain case cover.

To install:

If the old sensor is being reinstalled, clean off the old spacer on the sensor face. A new spacer must be attached to the face before installation.

If the sensor is bring replaced, confirm that the proper spacer is attached to the face and a new O-ring is positioned in the groove of the new sensor.

Install the sensor in the chain case cover, then push the sensor down until it contacts the camshaft sprocket. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the retaining screw to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).

Attach the electrical wiring to the sensor.

Connect the negative battery cable.

Hit it w/ a few squirts of PB Blaster. The best anti-seize formula available.

That's got to be the best penetrating oil I've EVER sold in 26 years of
selling parts. And it's not overpriced.

Make sure to get the proper cardboard spacer when re-installing it and don't just put it back in or else it will hit the camshaft sprocket.
