If you have the 3.0 L or 4.0 L V6 engine, the cam position sensor is located on the top rear of the engine. If you have the 2.3 L 4 cyl. engine, you will find it on the left front of the engine behind the oil pump pulley.

Ranger 2.2 diesel turbo. Where can I get a wiring diagram for the engine?


run the fault codes
it may be a broken cam shaft , cam/crank position sensors or immobiliser not operational
don't touch the wiring until you have the fault codes.

I have 2002 Ford ranger 2.3l n I broke two teeth on the harmonic balancer that the sensor reads I assume will this stop the engine from starting?


most definitely
there has to be set pulses for the position sensor to work
normally both the crank position sensor and the cam shaft position sensor work together and send signals to the ECM and if one signal is not in sync with the other , the ecm thinks something is wrong and shuts down the engine.

Where is the cam shaft senser on a ford ranger 2.5 td 2002


Ford did not put a 2.5 in a Ranger, maybe a 2.3 ?

3.0 - The CMP sensor& synchronizer/shaft are located behind the intake manifold (i.e., back near the firewall on a Ranger) on the top of the cylinder block. If you just need to replace the sensor, it is a simple job of unplugging the electrical connector and removing the screws holding the sensor in place. Here is a sketch of the sensor to give you an idea what to look for:

I can't find timing mark on cam sprocket


For the 1997 Ford Ranger: Unspecified Engine Size:
Click on the following: direct, free Link.
It shows the Timing Marks for the Camshaft Sprocket and Oil Pump Sprocket.
The other Timing Marks should be on the Inner Cover. If NO Mark can be found: NOTE the Shaft Key Position in relation to where the Marks should be.

It does not have an ignition control module. The PCM (powertrain control module) fires the coil pack based on signal it recieves from the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor.
