The camshaft sensor is located at the back of the head on driver side. Remove the wire,unscrew the sensor,screw the new sensor in the head and put the wire back on the sensor

The camshaft sensor is not in the back on the 98 4 cyl its right in front. All you need to do is take off the 3 bolts on the top of the heat shield and pull it back a bit and it will be right there.

How do I get to the cam sensor?

Most early 2 thousands GM models have twin cam sensors. One mounted on the front of the cylinder head and one at the back of the head.(4cyl engines) On V6's and V8's there can be 2 or 4 sensors depending on the make/model/engine. Remove the plastic cover on top of engine and look for a 2 wire harness attached to an enviromental conector that is plugged into the cam sensor.

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

2000 Ford Focus timing belt failure

If it is the single over head cam (SOHC),chances are you will be o.k.
If it is the dual over head cam (DOHC) , chances are you bent some vales and possible piston damage.
SOHC you can probably do yourself,but the DOHC you need special tools for the set-up of the engine.
Remember to ( after belt is installed ) remove the spark plugs and turn the engine over by hand atleast 2 full turns of the crankshaft.
If while turning by hand the engine stops, you need to reposition the belt on the pulleys. Check the proper diagram, and follow the instructions carefully.
Please rate this.

Find and replace speed sensor


On Top of the Transmission. You can see the Black sensor just under the Air Breather Intake assembly in front of the driver side. It has an electrical wire connection and is bolted onto the tranny with (2)5/16" hex head bolts and (1)1/2" nut that holds the throttle arm to the sensor. Very easy to replace.
