The symptoms of a bad cam sensor or usually car the idles poorly, misfireing , when at a full stop car revs up and down . when accelerating the car hesitates. You should have codes that will confirm the issue. Most parts stores will read the codes for free.

bank 1 exhaust is the rear manifold towards the windshield side. Follow the exhaust down. There should be one oxygen sensor before the catalytic converter and a monitor after the catalytic converter. Be Careful.. they look the same.

The single and double overhead cam engines take different sensors - it should be under a wiring harness close to the throttle cable.
Did you check the computer for trouble codes ?

I took my moms 2001 ford taurus to be inspected. It fail due to EGR sensor.. Machnic said sensor needed to be cleaned. After taking apart he said valve was badly cloged. Soaked overnight and said it would...


I would highly suspect the "EGR backpressure sensor"
From experience and many conversations, a clooged EGR valve is almost unheard of these day. Get to an auto part store, were they can tell you what problem code(s) your car is getting, and possible good advice.
Sincerely, another 2001 Taurus owner.

Where is bank 1 on a 2001 ford taurus?


If it was the upper o2 this is the one.This does not mean the o2 is bad,check the spark plugs and boots,and fuel pressure.The fuel ratio is not correct on that bank.

Missfire on #1 cylinder not bad. Switched #1and #4 plugs problem got worse


There are sensors located throughout the engine. In most cases in order to locate the correct sensor, which needs replaced, the vehicle will have to be hooked up to a type of technology which will pin point the faulty sensor. Most likely, the problem is the crank shaft sensor or the cam shaft sensor.

I would recheck your setting as this can be generated if the Cam Sensor is not quite in synch. This is a very common code to appear post Cam Position Sensor replacement.
