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:

SOURCE: camshaft position sensor
The camshaft position sensor is on the rear cylinder head on the left end (the serpentine belt end of the engine - passenger side). It is a son-of-a gun to get at. When it is bad or the connector is intermittant or bad, the symptom will be irregular idle from 500 to 750 RPM or so.

here are illustrations of the CKP (crankshaft position) sensor in 2.3L and 3.0L.
Note: In the bottom of the 2.3L drawing says Trottle Position (TP) Sensor, this is wrong, It should say CKP Sensor.
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is located to the left of the crankshaft pulley.

The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is located just behind the crankshaft pulley on engine block.

The cost of the sensor is $23 bucks at AutoZone.

Remove the serpentine belt, remove the power steering pump to get access. You might have to remove the upper radiator hose. NOTE: When changing cam or crank sensors your vehicle will need to go through a re-learn process. This can only be done at the dealer!!
