The ambient temp sensor is located behind the grill in front of the radiator. It will be a wire with a black plug on the end.

2002 Ford Escape V6 runs poorly when ambient temperature and humidity rise.

You should purchase all the factory manuals from Helm.Com
if you intent to work on your own vehicle

Without reference material your done,you don't have any way
to learn the systems your trying to diagnose

You have a check light one,so why have you not worked that issues

You mentioned resolving the PO301 cylinder misfire

I would replace the 3 COP Coils on the firewall side & keep them
to use along with the #4 thru 6 cyl coils if you have more misfire

You really need professional scan tool software for your notebook
& run Mode $06 to check for misfire counts

The front O2 Sensors need to get replaced at 100,000 mile
good or bad.

Check intake & the entire vehicle for vacuum leaks
Need an Evap Smoke Machine for that

Nothing ever gets replaced
You learn the systems & only after testing &
a result that indicates a problem,then you replace
a part.
Have to work the codes down to component testings first
& go thru the entire vehicle & ALL it's systems

I don't look for a problem
I test to see what does work
Then the failed parts find you

My Nissan Engine type GA15DE1497 Manufactured 1997. Has stalled. Diagnostic kit says the Camshaft positioning censor has failled. The mechanic working on the car can not locate that censor. Kindly let me...

Hi there,

Firstly, if your mechanic cannot locate the camshaft sensor on your GA15DE, then he should NOT be working on your vehicle - chances are, you are payiing extra labour time due to his lack of skill !

Camshaft sensors are generally located 'inside' the distributor cap, or just outside it. Some Nissan engines had the location moved from the side of the engine, to the top.

I strongly recommend you choose a mechanic who understands your engine (i.e. authorised Nissan mechanic) who will get the job done quicker.
