Can anyone tell me or give me details on the Cam Shaft Position Sensor
for this vehicle. I got a "check engine soon light" and that is what
comes up on the code. What exactly does this sensor do? I dont know
too much about cars, but try to fix what I can to save some money. I
cannot pass my NY inspection with this light on. We have cleared it a
few times it would stay off for about 40 miles but now comes back once
you re-start the car. Also where would I find this sensor if I go to
Thanks in advance.
the cam shaft position sensor tells the computer to let the fuel
injector's kick on at the right time you need to replace it its not hard
and you need to get the oem part from ford and it cost about $30.00 i had
to replace mine
Just to add to what others have said: Check the part that it mounts to. (The
mounts on a rotating shaft where the distributor would normally be) I can't for
life of me remember what it's called. The "rotor" inside gets damaged and takes
the sensor, or vice-versa. Very common on this vintage Taurus. If the housing
be replaced it takes a special timing tool.
