Location of cam and crank position sensors

The cam sensor is located at the front right front side of the cylinter head, while you are facing the engine.---------- The crank position sensor located below the pcv valve that is located on block not the valve cover, its below the exhaust manifold. You will have to remove the catalytic converter to see the exact view of both the sensors. The camshaft sensor is on the head. The crankshaft sensor is in the block, just below the exhaust manifold. ------------ Thanks.Helpmech.

Car cranks but won't start. Has no spark. It does get fuel in, just changed the ecm, the crankshaft position sensor and the coil pack. Any ideas?

Could be a crankshaft position sensor fault or even a ignition coil fault. I suggest u check the stored fault codes in the PCM first. If there is no ckp sensor codes in the system and a new coil doesn't fix the problem it's possible the coil has spiked the PCM . If this is the case a new coil and PCM should be installed. The engine rpm and signal from the coil is picked up from the ckp sensor.

Changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no

if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck

I have a 99 Ford escort zx2 and the enigne quit while is was driv

This is a common problem for a crankshaft sensor failure. When it fails, the engine can not start since the ECM doesn't know the proper position of the crankshaft to give ignition according to TDC (top dead Center). Therefore it doesn't matter how strong your battery is, it won't fire. The fire is only happens when an ignition happens at the highest compression point when a piston is at top and this is reported by the crankshaft sensor. Have this checked out and replaced. Good luck.

Car idles slightly higher in park or stop and jerks back

Have the car scanned for a trouble code. It seems like a sensor problem to me. Either the idle position sensor or the crankshaft position sensor may be going bad on it.
