If there are no adjustments to be made on the mount, there is nothing to do except mount it as it fits!

How do i replace the camshaft position sensor


On 2001-2005 vehicles the camshaft position sensor is mounted at the rear of the cylinder head. On 2006 vehicles, the camshaft position sensor is located on top of the engine, on the engine head cover.

Testing 2001-2003
  1. Connect the scan tool to the data link connector.
  2. Start the engine. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature.
  3. Monitor the CMPS signal. It should continuously fluctuate between 0-5 volts.
  4. If abnormality is found, replace the sensor.

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the connector from the sensor.
  3. Remove the bolt that retains the sensor.
  4. Remove the sensor.
To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Vw golf se fsi 2006 30,000 miles. exhaust warning light on


If it is the 1.6 FSI model, it is very sensitive to the type of gasoline, it should be octane 97 or higher.
Very commonly, owners of this model use the 95 Octane gasoline, which seems to work ok, but the sensors in the exhaust (yellow motorwarning light) will eventually (can take a few years) clog up and you cant clean it or change the sensor easy either as you need to remove the whole exhaust system.

So either you let VW fix this for you (expensive) or you do it yourself (need a decent garage, equipment and a new sensor).

1993 ford taurus, replaced all starting and charging componets still no spark to plugs. Checked all fuses and all fusible links. Replaced key switch, ignition switch,neutral safty...


The camshaft position sensor sends a signal to the PCM, powertrain control module. The PCM then determines spark plug firing. Could be the camshaft position sensor.

1996 is all I have
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor 3.0L (2V) Engine
The camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (12126):
  • is a single Hall-effect magnetic switch activated by a single vane which is driven by the camshaft (6250).
  • provides camshaft position information which is used by the ignition coil (12029) and the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) for fuel synchronization.
3.0L (4V) Engine
The camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (6B288) is:
  • a variable reluctance sensor.
  • triggered by the high-point mark on the LH exhaust camshaft sprocket (6256).
-----------------
3.0L (2V) Engine
SPECIAL SERVICE TOOL(S) REQUIRED Description Tool Number Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A
sth~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Prior to removal of the camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (12126), set cylinder No.1 to zero degrees top dead center (TDC) of compression stroke. Then note the position of the camshaft position sensor electrical connector. The installation procedure requires that the connector be located in the same position.
Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Refer to Section 14-01 .
  1. Disconnect engine control sensor wiring connector from camshaft position sensor.
  1. Remove camshaft position sensor retaining screws and camshaft position sensor from camshaft position sensor housing.
  1. If removing camshaft position sensor housing from the cylinder block (6010), proceed with Removal Step 5. If not removing camshaft position sensor housing, proceed to installation Step 6.
  1. Remove hold-down clamp (bolt and washer assembly).
  1. Remove camshaft position sensor housing from cylinder block.
Installation
  1. sth~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: A special service tool such as Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A must be obtained prior to installation of the replacement camshaft position sensor. Failure to follow this procedure will result in improper camshaft position sensor alignment. This will result in the fuel system being out of time with the engine, possibly causing engine damage.
    Attach Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A as follows:
    1. Engage camshaft position sensor housing vane into the radial slot of the tool.
    1. Rotate tool on camshaft position sensor housing until tool boss engages notch in camshaft position sensor housing.
  1. Pre-lubricate synchronizer gear with engine oil meeting Ford specification ESE-M2C123-A prior to assembly.
  1. Install camshaft position sensor housing so that drive gear engagement occurs when arrow on locator tool is pointed approximately 75 degrees counterclockwise from the rear face of the cylinder block. This step will locate camshaft position sensor electrical connector in the pre-removal position.
  1. Roatate Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A clockwise slightly. This will engage oil pump intermediate shaft. Push downward while adjusting Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A until the Syncro Gear engages the camshaft gear.
  1. When synchronizer flange is fully seated against block, the installation tool should be facing counterclockwise of engine centerline approximately 33 to 45 degrees.
  1. Install hold-down clamp (washer and bolt) and tighten bolt to 19-30 Nm (14-22 lb-ft).
  1. Remove Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A.
  1. sth~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: If camshaft position sensor electrical connector is not positioned properly, DO NOT reposition the connector by rotating the camshaft position sensor housing. This will result in the fuel system being out of time with the engine, possibly causing engine damage. Remove the camshaft position sensor housing and repeat installation procedure, beginning with Step 1.
    Install camshaft position sensor and retaining screws. Tighten screws to 1.5-4.0 Nm (13-35 lb-in).
  1. Connect engine control sensor wiring connector to camshaft position sensor.
  1. Connect battery ground cable.
