You need a live data scanner to test this, no static test will properly diagnose the sensor operation.

My 2003 Ford Focus would not accelerate, and kept dying on me, now wont start, do you know what could be wrong?


A strong possibility of a defective Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS)...It can be tested with a volt meter...TPS is located on the throttle body (see diagram below) & has a three pin connector with following wire colors; Brown (ground)...Yellow (+5 volts)...And White (TPS output)...Set meter to 5 volt dc...Push point,of safety pins into the Yellow and Brown wire at rear of connector...Do not disconnect connector...connect + lead to Yellow pin and - lead to Brown pin...Turn key on...Meter must read at least .08 volts...Open throttle full...Meter must read at least 4 volts...If not TPS is defective...Send results...NOTE>>>Diagram is based on a 2.0L Single Overhead Cam Engine, if your vehicle is different let me know...saailer

92 Ford Explorer XLT runs good for 15 minutes, then suddenly starts 'chugging,' loses power, and check engine light comes on.


Have the fault codes read again and get the code numbers so that we can identify if possible the causes for your problem. IN most codes recorded there are a list of possible causes for example if he said possible crank position sensor=== there is also the cam position sensor --wiring --ECM--HO2S sensor --MAF/MAP/VAF sensors that come into the equation

1998 v8 eddie bauer ford explorer does not start at all


Does the engine turn over? If the starter is turning the motor, then your issues are going to be no fuel, no spark. If not fuel means that your fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel filter is bad (common issues first). If you have fuel and no spark then your coils are bad, crankshaft position sensor, cam shaft position sensors are bad. Are there any check engine lights on? If so read the codes with a scanner. If not, then you are going to have to check electrical with a multi-meter to see what the problems may be.

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
