2003 ford taurus 3.0 Vulcan cranks strong, you can smell the gas but it won't start. I tried replacing the ignition coil with no results.


It is one of two things. Crank shaft sensor, on timing cover, behind crank pulley. Or the camshaft syncronizer, or the camshaft sensor (sits on top of Camshaft syncronizer) Located on drivers side end of engine, in what used to be the home of the old type distributor.

Where is the camshaft sensor located? The engine light came on, so I took it to Oreilly and ran the codes. The camshaft sensor malfunction is the code it read. So, I need to know where it is located, so...


It depends on which engine you have. It's between the cylinder heads either on the front (by the belt) or the back. Your sensor looks something like this:

Where is the location of camshaft sensor, vehicle will not start


The camshaft position sensor (CMP) on the 3.0L OHC (4 valve) and 3.4L SHO engines 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 camshaft position sensor (CMP) on the 3.0L OHV (2 valve) engine is a single hall-effect magnetic switch that is triggered by a single vane which is driven by the camshaft. The CMP sends a signal relating camshaft position back to the PCM which is used by the PCM to control engine timing.

Hope helps.
