Wow a hard start in the summer. Well you deffinately want that fixed before winter.
I aggree most likely it is glowplug relay or glowplugs being bad. I am replacing mine this summer due to the hard starts I had in the winter. I got 150,000 on my orginal glowplugs I think they are getting weak if not that then I got some that are completely bad.
Oh and to answer your question the CPS ( cam position sensor) is located on the front of engine, between the crank and water pump pulley at 11 o'clock as your looking up from under neath the truck. It requires a 10 mm socket 3 inch extension and ratchet to replace this sensor.
To answer another one of your questions yes the cps can cause hard start situations.
Another answer is yes the cps is cheaper then replacing glow plugs. But the best thing to do is trouble shoot the problem find the cause and fix it.
