The Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor detects the position of the camshaft in order to identifiy when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. The CMP sensor is used for ignition timing in the Ford DIS igntion system, but not in the EDIS igntion system. Both DIS/EDIS use the CMP signal for synchronizing the firing of sequential fuel injectors.
On the 3.0L vulcan engine, the CMP signal is generated by a single Hall-Effect magnetic switch, activated by a single "vane" spinning around by virture of a synchronized shaft which is driven by the camshaft.
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:

change the crankshaft positon sensor in the rear of the engine above the oilfilter. Also check the wiring to this sensor, they have a problem shorting out. You have to change the camshaft and crankshaft sensors at the same time. Make sure you give your car a major tune up. Did you check yor starter?.........runjoe

I'm not sure what size your engine is but I believe on the 2.2L the camshaft position sensor is at the front right hand side of the valve cover. The 2.4L is the same but with another cam sensor on the exact opposite (back) side of the valve cover, closest to the firewall.I don't know about it on a 2.0L, probably close to the same. The 2.4L also has two cam actuator solenoids (one for exhaust and one for intake, marked on valve cover) on the left hand side of the valve cover, directly on top. Each part costs in a range of $20-60 depending on where you go. Hope this helps.
