when did it last have a timing belt replaced ?if its got over100 ,000 km on it
and hasnt been done i would have it done if the belt brakes it can be fatal
for the engine if its old then it may have jumped a tooth wich will
put the cam timing out i would look there first
turn the engine over by hand till the timing mark on the crank pulley
is showing tdc remove the top half of the timing belt cover
remove no1 spark plug use a suitable probe to check that no1 piston is at the
top if so check the marks on the cam gears are in line with there marks if all
marks line up the valve timing is ok
The camshaft position sensor on the 2.0L is located on the rear of the cylinder head and bolted in place. It's been a while since I had one off but I believe you have to line up a dowel on the sensor with another piece [magnet] that is driven by the camshaft. Not to hard to do, just note how all the pieces come apart and make sure everything goes smoothly back together. Don't force anything. Sometimes the old sensor will show some wear from the cam pushing against it which is normal. I haven't done one on a 1.6L however so I can't help there any.
I have a 2005 and the things that go bad on it is when the sensor goes off then for the intake then where the butterfly is on the intake gets dirty and needs to be cleaned it is the venturi gets dirty and needs to be cleaned and if it is a cam crank then it is the cam actuator that needs fixed you can tell if you take it off and there a screen missing it is a good sign that it needs be replaced and it is on the left side of the engine you need to understand that if it gives you a code that tells you that it is a sensor that is telling you that what the sensor looks after is bad not the sensor
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.
Well either coincidence that the cam sensor went bad, you forgot to plug in the cam sensor, Or you have the cam that the sensor reads off of 1 tooth off. Check to see if its plugged in if yes remove the upper timing cover and see if everything lines up.
Under the ft driver side bumper locate power steer line and pump above line is sensor in block has two wire plug one bolt 8mm. long socket with short ext 1/4" drive should do it. has o-ring so may be a little tight after getting bolt out. about as long as pen, pull out ,put new in connect wire.
