Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
Where is this located, I can't seem to find it? I have also noticed they come in different types...for the Taurus 99 3.0 single cam...I need to replace this part, and I need help!
Look under the coil pack you will find a round black housing just about where the distributor used to be before they changed over to the coil pack engine
2 screws and this housing comes off and it is the cam sensor
a word of warning the main cause of cam sensor problems is that the magnet in the rotating part
(or as ford calls it the syncronizer ) this magnet comes apart and actually hits the sensor and damages it
if this occurs you have to replace the sensor and the syncronizer this requires a special tool to set
it ( if you do not use the tool you will set a code for cam crank not syncronized
Hope this helps David
