I nee instructions on a cam sensor removal for a 1998 ford contor with a 16 vale 2.o over head cam engine

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.

Need to find gap setting for autolite spark plugs for ford contour 2000 model 2.0 eng. double overhead cams

The spark plug gap is usually on a sticker under the hood or in the owners manual. It is usually in the range of 0.045 to 0.060. Don't believe the guy at the parts store when he says the plugs are pre-gapped.

What is a camshaft sensor and where is it in tne van?

It's a sensor that measures the rotational position of the cam, and is mounted on the end of the camshaft. If you have an overhead cam (OHC) engine, it'll be at one end of the cylinder head and plugged directly onto the camshaft. You may have to remove some external covers to see it.
