Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Accord to the shop manual... real simple. LOL
Disconnect negative battery cable(s).
Remove intake manifold.
Remove exhaust manifold.
Remove timing chains.
Disconnect heater hoses.
Remove cylinder head bolts in sequence.
Remove cylinder head and gasket.
Check cylinder head for warpage, cracks and damage. Ensure proper gaskets are installed.
Right and left cylinder head gaskets are not interchangeable.
Rotate crankshaft 90 degrees counterclockwise from vertical position.
Ensure no piston is at TDC.
CAUTION:Position camshaft so valves DO NOT extend below cylinder head surface, or ensure Camshaft Positioner (T93P-6256-A) and the Camshaft Positioning Tool Adapters (T92P-6256-A) are installed before installing cylinder head.
Install NEW cylinder head bolts.
*** DO NOT reuse bolts. ***
Coat bolt head-to-cylinder head surfaces with engine oil. DO NOT oil threads of cylinder head bolts. Ensure rear cylinder head bolts are installed in cylinder head and secured by rubber bands before installing cylinder head.
Install cylinder heads.
Tighten cylinder head bolts to specification and in sequence.
Step 1 28-31 (38-42)
Step 2 Additional 85-95 Degrees
Step 3 Loosen 360 Degrees
Step 4 28-31 (38-42)
Step 5 Additional 85-95 Degrees
Step 6 Additional 85-95 Degrees
If camshaft positioner was not used during cylinder head installation, rotate camshafts using flats matched at center of camshaft until both cams are in time. Install Camshaft Positioner (T91P-6256-A) on flats of camshaft. This will prevent camshafts from rotating.
Rotate crankshaft 45 degrees clockwise. This will position crankshaft so cylinder No. 1 is at TDC.
DO NOT rotate crankshaft past TDC position.
Timing chains can now be installed.
To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure.

Camshaft Position Sensor
Description & Operation
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) is a variable reluctance sensor that is triggered by a high point on the left-hand exhaust camshaft sprocket. The CMP sends a signal relating camshaft position back to the PCM which is used by the PCM to control engine timing.
The CMP sensor detects the position of the camshaft. The CMP sensor identifies when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. A signal is then sent to the PCM and used for synchronizing the sequential firing of the fuel injectors. Coil-on-plug (COP) ignition applications use the CMP signal to select the proper ignition coil to fire. The input circuit to the PCM is referred to as the CMP input or circuit. DTC P0340 is associated with this sensor.
