How do change a cam sensor on 1999 jeep grand cherokee

I bought a cam sensor on a 1999 jeep grand engine size 4.0. Can I just change the two bolts and change the sensor, Because I put an new sensor on and still no spark. Some one said that # 1cyl has to be on tdc and then it has to be aligned with the right size pin?
