Question about Cars & Trucks
What difference (if any) is there between a CAMshaft sensor and a CRANKshaft sensor? I have an 03 Lincoln LS v8 that may need one or the other. Not sure and dont want to replace the wrong part.

befor in the ealier models of accords they use to be both the cam and crank sensors in the distibutor but they separated them !!!So no they are not together on your car tha cam sensor is in the distributor and the crank sensor is in front of engine or in the lower timing belt cover if it is in the timing cover you can see a wire going dow the timing cover way to the bottom on the rear side off it
hope it will help you if you have any question just wright back !!!!

No recall information on that situation at this time. if you suspect this, you can contact the dealer and provide your vin and they can look up a new or non released recall for your vehicle. If this recall has just been released, it will take some time to circulate though the recall system. at this time, nothing is showing up on our systems on a recall for the crank and cam sensors.

I have the same year truck as you do. Replaced engine last year and now this same exact thing is going on. I've talked to several people with the same problem. They have said to check the distributor and see if the bushing is worn out. This will cause the reluctor wheel to hit or miss the CAM sensor. Causing the sensor not to get the correct reading. So I took my truck to a very reputable garage, sure enough 12% difference between the CAM and CRANK sensors. Now if the distributor needs a new bushing or replaced a Automotive shop has to "relearn" the the system. After you replace either one. So that they are working together.

First- to drain ,you can reach the drain valve,from the pass side,if you lay on the ground and reach up to the radiator. You do not even have to raise the vehicle up
Second- mix Yellow GO5 Coolant about 50/50 or 60/40. Do not use Green in a Ford or Orange GM
To Fill- Remove the front two plastic screw type buttons,from the engine cover
-Remove the cover
The radiator cap is on the front of engine,on top,it is plastic
Remove cap and that is your fill point
Run engine to warm and get thermostat open,as you would with any vehicle
Top off coolant,replace cap
VERY IMPORTANT-next to the Power Brake Booster,and just under it,is a BLEEDER HOSE;to let air out of system. Turn screw slot ,only a little,DO NOT REMOVE SCREW. When coolant runs out close.
Fill-Degas Bottle,to full line,with coolant.
Check the next couple days on resevoir level ( Degas Bottle)

Your best ,to cut the old belt,to remove.
You can use a long handle 1/2" drive ratchet, on the belt tensioner.
The only pic is in the shop manual.
Wear long sleeves and arm protector sleeves on top. the fan housing is sharp and a tight fit. You will be there a couple hours.
Draw a picture before you start, and you won't need a diagram
