is WHY you are inquiring about the crankshaft sensor. For your information, if
your vehicle is equipped with the 3.0L OHV V6, it is probably a CAMSHAFT
POSITION SENSOR & SYNCHRONIZER that needs replacing, if it exhibits the
following symptoms. 1. You hear a squealing type noise that is extremely
similar to, and often misdiagnosed as a belt squeal. 2. The engine runs rough,
sometimes stalling. 3. If you do happen you get a P0340 CMP circuit failure
code. Again, this is only common to 3.0L OHV V6s. If your vehicle is equipped
with the 3.0L DOHC Duratec, disregard everything I've just posted. If you do need
a new cam sensor, go to your local Ford dealer parts department to purchase it.
(FORD base part numbers, 6B288 & 12A362) Hope this helps. To add to your
question, ALL Taurus engines use a timing chain. It would help if you post
which engine yours is equipped with. To add further to my post, if you do
purchase the two aforementioned parts, the sychronizer needs to be timed the
way a distributor would, during installation, failing which would result in
ignition and fuel injection timing being out. a obd2 scanner
