This is not s small job and should not be attempted unless you have a very good knowledge on timing systems and such? Luckily this is a overhead cam system, once you have removed all air system and hoses you can unscrew cylinder rocker cover to reveal cam. You will have to take cam cover off from side of engine, then you will have to locate cam timing tensioner, scratch cam timing wheel or mark with nail varnish for exact position! Then undo bolt to remove wheel, you will need a wedge to remove this/them if dual (this is the most important thing to get precise) then slacken tensioner to release belt after which you should be able to systematically undo cam shim bolts and release cam shaft, (make sure you make note of assembly for brackets as major part of healthy engine! If you shim s look worn then Defo replace them . After replracing New cam shaft line up old wheel with the timing marks and then you will be ready to replace timing belt and lining up cam position then tighten up belt and replace cam cover and rocker cover, if when you try to turn engine over you hear tapping noise, turn off immediately and ask garage to set timing up for you but remember to inform them of your escapades for them to fix. If no tapping noise then it done and you deserve a big pat on the back. Good luck and hope this helps?

On a 1985 f150 where would a camshaft sensor be


Check this procedure... REMOVALand& INSTALLATION

6-300
  1. Remove the grille, radiator, and timing cover.
  2. Remove the distributor, fuel pump, oil pan and oil pump.
  3. Align the timing marks. Unbolt the camshaft thrust plate, working through the holes in the camshaft gear.
  4. Loosen the rocker arms, remove the pushrods, take off the side cover and remove the valve lifters with a magnet.
  5. Remove the camshaft very carefully to prevent nicking the bearings.
  6. Oil the camshaft bearing journals and use Lubriplate or something similar on the lobes. Install the camshaft, gear, and thrust plate, aligning the gear marks. Tighten down the thrust plate. Make sure that the camshaft end-play is not excessive.
  7. The last item to be replaced is the distributor. The rotor should be at the firing position for no. 1 cylinder, with the timing gear marks aligned

V6 and V8 Including Diesel
Ford recommends removing the diesel engine for camshaft removal.
  1. Remove the intake manifold and valley pan, if so equipped.
  2. Remove the rocker covers, and either remove the rocker arm shafts or loosen the rockers on their pivots and remove the pushrods. The pushrods must be reinstalled in their original positions.
  3. Remove the valve lifters in sequence with a magnet. They must be replaced in their original positions.
  4. Remove the timing chain/gear cover and timing chain (timing gear on V8 diesel) and sprockets.
  5. In addition to the radiator and air conditioning condenser, if so equipped, it may be necessary to remove the front grille assembly and the hood lock assembly to gain the necessary clearance to slide the camshaft out of the front of the engine. On the V6-3.8L, remove the camshaft thrust button and spring. Remove the camshaft thrust plate attaching screws and carefully slide the camshaft out of its bearing bores. Use extra caution not to scratch the camshaft lobes.
Camshaft removal tools, Ford part no. T65L-6250-A and adaptor 14-0314 are needed to remove the diesel camshaft.
  1. Coat the camshaft with engine oil liberally before installing it. Slide the camshaft into the engine very carefully so as not to scratch the bearing bores with the camshaft lobes. Install the camshaft thrust plate and tighten the attaching screws to 9 - 12 ft. lbs. Measure the camshaft end-play. If the end-play is more than 0.009 inch; (0.228mm), replace the thrust plate. Assemble the remaining components in the reverse order of removal.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day

    I received a P0340 on my 1995 Nissan Altima. It says I need to replace the Camshaft sensor. The dealers say that my car does not have one in it and that it may be in the distributor itself. Is this true....


    They may be right. I cannot find the part. here is what the manual says:


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The camshaft position sensor is located inside the distributor. On some distributors, the camshaft position sensor is not serviceable (replacement parts may not be available separately). If the camshaft position sensor is serviceable, use the following procedure.

    1. Remove the distributor cap and wires.
    2. Remove the rotor.
    3. Remove the camshaft position sensor cap.
    4. Remove the camshaft position sensor mounting screws.
    5. Carefully remove the camshaft position sensor.

    To install:
    1. Position the camshaft position sensor in the distributor and tighten the mounting screws securely.
    2. Install the camshaft position sensor cap.
    3. Install the rotor.
    4. Install the distributor cap and wires.

    Change cam position sensor chy


    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Detach the electrical harness connector from the camshaft position sensor.
    3. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting bolt. There is a hole in the bracket for tool access to the sensor mounting bolt.
    4. Rotate the sensor away from the engine block.
    5. Pull the camshaft position sensor up out of the chain case cover. Do not pull on the sensor wire.
    There is an O-ring on the sensor case. The O-ring may make removal of the sensor difficult. A light tap on top of the sensor prior to removal may reduce the force needed for removal. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace if necessary.
    To install:
    If the sensor removed is going to be re-installed, clean off the old spacer on the sensor face. A new spacer must be attached to the sensor face before installation. If the sensor is being replaced, be sure that a paper spacer is attached to the sensor face and an O-ring is positioned in the groove of the new sensor.
    1. Apply 1-2 drops of clean engine oil to the O-ring prior to installing the sensor.
    2. Install the sensor into the chain case cover and rotate into position.
    3. Push down on the sensor until contact is made with the camshaft gear. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the mounting bolt to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
    4. Attach the electrical harness connector to the camshaft position sensor.
    5. Connect the negative battery cable.

    The camshaft position sensor sends a signal to the PCM, powertrain control module. The PCM then determines spark plug firing. Could be the camshaft position sensor.

    1996 is all I have
    Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor 3.0L (2V) Engine
    The camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (12126):
    • is a single Hall-effect magnetic switch activated by a single vane which is driven by the camshaft (6250).
    • provides camshaft position information which is used by the ignition coil (12029) and the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) for fuel synchronization.
    3.0L (4V) Engine
    The camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (6B288) is:
    • a variable reluctance sensor.
    • triggered by the high-point mark on the LH exhaust camshaft sprocket (6256).
