QUESTION: will the camshaft and crankshaft sensors interchange on a 3.3 and 3.8 v6 dodge motors

ANSWER: Hi Bret,
I don't find there to be a 3.8L engine in 1990. Can you clarify the sizes and which vehicle these are used in?

QUESTION: The 3.8 is in a 1990 New Yorker

Hi Bret,
I did find in my Haynes manual for 1998-93 full size cars that there is a section about those sensors for the 3.3 and 3.8L engine. Those appear to be identical engines except for the displacement and also that the cam and crank sensors are located identically in the engines. The replacement of the sensors is discussed as if they are identical, so on that basis I would believe that the sensors are indeed identical.
Thanks for you rating/nomination.
