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:

Sorry for the severe delay.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.
Click on the following direct Link. It has the Timing Belt Diagrams with Marks for the Camshaft and Crankshaft that you will need. It also has numerous other helpful diagrams for use.
Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

You sate you have the 2.6 liter engine. Is it four or six cylinders? The number of cylinders is also used to determine the correct battery amps. The following information is for the four cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps, or 720 cold cranking amps. The following is for the six cylinder engine...You can use any battery with at least 590 cold cranking amps, 620 cold cranking amps or 720 cold cranking amps. The auto parts store can help you decide the best battery for your vehicle.

Testimonial: "Lots of thanks for your help. It was very useful"
SOURCE: 1999 ford ranger 4x4 4.0L
P1151 means a lean bank 2 O2 sensor
P1152 Means a rich bank 2 O2 sensor
P1309 Means miss fire detected
I would check your fuel injector for fouling
When they foul the will develop a drip
Causing a fuel fluctuation that will have O2 sensors reporting rich and lean voltage changes
This causes the pcm to adjust injector pulses making them shorter and longer.
causing more fuel or less fuel.
From this condition you may see plug fouling.
Also check for leaking or faulty fuel pressure regulator or restricted return line.
Most of the time it wont be a bad O2 sensor the O2 sensor is just doing its job.
You also have already changed the plugs and Map so there already out of the way.
If this helps please give me some feed back
Hope this works for you FixYa

The timing marks diagram for a 2002 Volvo 1.9 D Turbo:
1. Ensure timing pin inserted .
2. Ensure camshaft sprocket timing marks aligned .
3. Fit timing belt in following order:
3.1. Crankshaft sprocket.
3.2. Tensioner pulley.
3.3 Camshaft sprocket.
3.4. Water pump pulley.
NOTE: Observe direction of rotation marks on belt.
4. Ensure belt is taut between sprockets.
5. Ensure marks on belt aligned with marks on sprockets  & .
6. Turn camshaft sprocket slightly in clockwise direction to tension timing belt against tensioner pulley.
7. Fit timing belt to fuel pump sprocket.
8. Turn camshaft sprocket slightly in anti-clockwise direction to tension timing belt against water pump pulley.
9.1. Crankshft pulley .
9.2. Crankshaft pulley centre bolt . Use new bolt.
10. Ensure timing pin located correctly .
11. Tighten crankshaft pulley centre bolt . Tightening torque = 20 Nm + 100 ... 130 degrees.
12. Remove timing pin .
13. Slacken tensioner nut .
14. Insert M6 bolt .
15. Attach tension gauge to belt at triangle sign (see above pictures). Tool: Volvo No. 951 2797 .
16. Screw in M6 bolt until tension gauge indicates 88 +/- 3 Hz.
17. Remove tension gauge .
18. Temporaly tighten tensioner pulley bolt .
19. Turn crankshaft 4 turns clockwise to TDC on No.1 cylinder.
20. Insert 8 mm timing pin .
21. Rock crankshaft slightly to ensure timing pin located correctly.
22. Ensure camshaft sprocket timing marks aligned .
23. Remove timing pin .
24. Attach tension gauge to belt at triangle sign (see above pictures). Tool: Volvo No. 951 2797 .
25. Tension gauge should indicates 85 +/- 3 Hz.
26. If not: Screw in M6 bolt until tension gauge indicates 85 +/- 3 Hz.
27. Remove tension gauge .
28. Tighten tensioner nut to 50 Nm .
NOTE: DO NOT turn crankshaft again to check timing belt tension.
29. Remove M6 bolt .
30. Fit blanking plug and tighten to 20 Nm . Use locking fluid.
31. Install components in reverse order of removal.
32. Check Engine Control Module (ECM) fault memory.
