When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. It is rectangular with an electrical plug in. It is attached to the bell housing of the transmission, one bolt holds it in there. If this is a 3. Thanx Here is the directions on where it is and how to change it someone else posted on the web.
As a preventive strategy, it is smart to routinely check-up your car or truck in regular basis before and after trips. Replace the bolt, wire plug, starter, reconnect the battery.

It is one of the most difficult sensors to reach, and must be removed prior to taking out the transmission. Once the alignment tool is popped on then things are properly aligned. This information is used by the Engine Control Module to control ignition and fuel injection. If you have small hands, you can reach up working with both hands from underneath the drivers side, where the tranny is bolted to the engine, with a small combo wrench in one hand, feeling and guiding for the location of the bolt with the other. This can be dangerous if it happens while driving.
This thread will help with Camshaft position sensor alignment the Haynes and the Chilton's manuals sure do scare a guy on this subject. You may also need to replace the vacuum hose to the sensor as well Posted on Feb 25, 2009 Ford Explorer and V8 O2 Sensor Locations diagram. This will result in the fuel system being out of time with the engine, possibly causing engine damage. Since it will start and run sometimes, we won't consider a compression issue. You will see a little half moon shaped piece of metal in there. Once you get the synchro in then bolt it down tight. If you do not have a spark tester or a fuel pressure tester, you can pick up a spark tester for little money at the local parts store or at Harbor Freight or probably Sears.
You had me scared for the first few posts in this thread hahaha the cam sensor is only used for starting the truck from what I understand, it does nothing for timing and it is not critical what oriantation the stator is in when it is installed, it is just a stator!! I have Olds Intrigue 2000 3. It's location varies depending on the engine you have. Its above the starter going into the side of the block. Any Ford parts department will have one in stock, as well as some aftermarket parts stores. My 2001 Saturn L300 had random problems starting hot, cutting off intermittently and erratic transmission shifting.
Here is the directions on where it is and how to change it someone else posted on the web. There is a small metal bracket attached by the same bolt as well. Also the part that most stores provide is not correct for mine. I don't know what the exact code is but whatever the code was it was for the camshaft sensor so I replaced it and gives the same code. That's why I don't sell for a living, I don't know when to shut up!!!! Bank two sensor 2 will be on the drivers side of the engine. A friend said if you don't hear it engage then give it a couple whacks with a hammer to see if the sending unit might be off a little.
There is plenty of battery and it kicked over very strong just wouldn't engage and run. So there could be as many as 5 speed sensors. There is an output shaft speed sensor on the transmission assembly, located toward the rear of the transmission on the driver's side. If you don't have any aftermarket equipment installed, just disregard this. Attach Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A 3.
This step will locate camshaft position sensor electrical connector to the pre-removal position. You will only get a small swing on the wrench, but you can get the bolt out easily with your fingers. Then note the position of the camshaft position sensor electrical connector. Very common problem for this engine in Aurora 3. The installation procedure requires that the electrical connector be located in the same position. The new sensor may not look exactly the same as the old part, but will have all the hook ups as the old one. Take your alignment tool and slide it onto the synchro body and the little half moon piece.
My friends who would know this stuff are too busy with their projects to come over hahahaha friggin Brett and his 48 Mustang projects! Since 1919, Standard Motor Products has engineered a full line of engine management products, including ignition parts, sensors and on-board computers. If you have insufficient fuel pressure when it won't start, or maybe even low fuel pressure when it does start, suspect the fuel pump. The computer uses the camshaft sensor to determine the firing of the fuel injectors at the appropriate valve timing. If this is a 3. Remove the wore plug into the sensor. Remove the synchronizer assembly and repeat Step 5.
Every place I go tells me the same code. Theres a single bolt that holds it in. If you have small hands, you can reach up working with both hands from underneath the drivers side, where the tranny is bolted to the engine, with a small combo wrench in one hand, feeling and guiding for the location of the bolt with the other. If you have 4 wheel ant-lock brakes, there is … a speed sensor in each front wheel hub. Armature tab will be damaged and synchronizer timing may be shifted.
