Most early 2 thousands GM models have twin cam sensors. One mounted on the front of the cylinder head and one at the back of the head.(4cyl engines) On V6's and V8's there can be 2 or 4 sensors depending on the make/model/engine. Remove the plastic cover on top of engine and look for a 2 wire harness attached to an enviromental conector that is plugged into the cam sensor.

I have a 91 olds Ninety eight regency elite Intermittently dies code 41 comes up cam sensor circut replaced cam sensor still dies could it be the crank sensor? thank you Michael Dale


cam sensor is only half of the cam circuit, the other half of the cam circuit is the magnet on the timing chain. the cam sensor reads from the magnet every time the engine completes a revolution,
what happens is the magnet on the chain will break into smaller piece which makes the sensor harder to read every time the engine make a complete revolution.
most likely you'll need to replace the timing chain to fix this.

Cam position sensor broke


ok easy fix. this is common on ALL ford w this style cam sensor,3.0 eats them for lunch. the sensor base has bushings like a real distributor, they get wore and fail. you can get new from ford, or reman at auto parts about 100 bucks. they come w the sensor installed but as with either, you need the allginment tool, looks like a little hockey puck, that only come from ford to set up or check engine light wont shut off. it will run without this but poorly. if you need more advice just post a comment to this and ill do my best to advise you

2005 ford excursion cam sensor location I need to change the cam sensor and the crank sensors on my excursion and i do not know where they are located


On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.

Bad cam or sensor


Check this out.. The cam sensor wires and the Ignition coil wires CAN interchange.. If you reverse them.. It'll blow the ecm.. In other words.. you can plug the coil into the cam sensor by mistake.... Look into that.. thank you
