SOURCE: location of cam position senor

Not a bad job to replace the cam position sensor, it took about two hours cost about $150.00 with oem parts. First remove air filter box,remove plastic spark plug cover. Jack up engine about an inch remove engine mount. Now you can access sensor through a convenient cover that mounts around engine mount bracket extending from engine block.( one ten millimeter bolt) Remove accessory drive belt for a little extra room and replace with new one while you are in there. Just between the two cam gears you will see a torx screw that aligns the switch when in installed. DO NOT REMOVE THIS Just above the torx screw is a reverse torx screw (6 millimeter) Put a shop rag in the access hole to catch the screw just in case you drop it ,( so it does not fall into timing belt cover) Put something "sticky" in the 6 millimeter socket such as gasket sealer to keep from losing screw. remove. Pull switch up from inside spark plug cover and install new one through the same. reinstall 6 millimeter bolt. Switch is self aligning. Reinstall belt, engine mount, air box. Doing this myself probably saved me about $150.00 to $200.00 dollars

SOURCE: truck stalls

What are the trouble codes? Recently had 0171 and 0174 codes. Engine coughed (or sneezed) upon a start one morning producing this problem resulting in very rough idle and stalling within 2 min of idling. Problem was vacuum hose blown off fuel regulator which is near impossible to reach without removing intake maniforld since the regulator is located between engine and firewall on 5.4l.

There are no cam shaft position sensors in this model. Check your spark plugs and the wires (boots, etc.) I had the same problem. Also a common problem in this model: if it over heats check your coolant temperature sensor. Jack up one side (drivers) of the car so less leaks out when you check it. The ones that come in the car usually crack, use the copper ones.

I have a 2010 F-350 supper duty 6.8 litter V-10 gas burner, the cam shaft postion sensor and pig tail wire connector was restored.I replaced both and reset the the unite by way of the battery but still...

Hi, I'm a retired ford tech, and one thing you learn is more often than not your issue is caused by a bad wire or plug. If you have a meter, check your wires one by one. Also make sure you don't have any pins bent in the plugs. One last thing, you mite have to be reset via the dealer, a lot of resets have to be done with there equipment.

Locating cam postioning sensor

Probably not, then. My understanding of the cam position sensor is that it is for sequential multi-port injection, and not for the older style of multi-port injection. In sequential injection, the computer times the injector pulse to coincide with the intake valve opening, and so the need for a camshaft sensor. Before sequential, the injectors were often "bank fired"- all the injectors on one side or bank of the v-6, v-8 were pulsed at the same time. 4 cylinder engines were similar I think, two injectors at a time were pulsed. GM started using SEFI back around 1991, I think, but took a few years before it was widely used.
