2001 330ci, 120k miles

Hi newbie here - The CEL has been coming on and off randomly over the past few weeks. This week the car started to stall occasionally and often has low power (regardless of whether the CEL is or or not). Tonight I had difficulty starting the car and it also kept stalling in 1st and 2nd gears.

I checked it through Peake and it listed the following codes on page 19:

41 - Intake camshaft poisition sensor

In reading the forums, looks like the sensor needs to be replaced. Should I just get the OEM part from a local dealership and have a mechanic replace it, or could there be other issues that may be contributing to these problems (I read on some posts about fuel pump and O2 sensors?). Just don't want to get the camshaft position sensor replaced if the real problem could be elsewhere.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
