The cam shaft positioning sensor is where the distributor used to be. the cam turns the distributor.you probably don't have a distributor and now there is a cam position sensor in its place. assuming you have distributors ignition,and coil packs.if it has a distributor, the sensor is located under the rotor and is held by 2 screws, but in order to remove it, you have line up the the notch in the mounting plate for the rotor with the sensor or you wont be able to get it out, its a very tight fit.

Hope it helps also if you need more info let me know, also vehicle make and model and year will help better give you location.

please if it helps 4 thumbs up or testimonial.

2013 captiva cam sensor replacement. Car stalling at lights.Code reader said cam sensor. Changed it but still stalling


best to change cam and crank sensor as they both need to work together. if either one goes it confuse the ecu depending on how the sensor goes wrong. so will show cam sensor fault. but really its the crank.

This pair of codes are related to the cam sensor.
Carefully check the cam sensors connectors and cables.

You have to rule out the timing belt first.
You will need help for a friend crank the engine while you view /feel the cam movement.
NO cam movement equal broken timing belt.
======
If the cams move then it is save to swap out the cam sensors,

Camshaft sensor is chirpping


Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

It is not the cam sensor it is the cam syncronizer that needs to be replaced. That is the piece driven by the cam shaft that the cam sensor sits on.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

Need to know what dodge codes P0325, P0344 & P0340 mean


0325 knock sensor
0344 cam position sensor intermittent
0340 cam position sensor failure

I would replace the cam position sensor from the codes you provided. The knock sensor
would most likely be related to the sensor failure.

I have a 91 olds Ninety eight regency elite Intermittently dies code 41 comes up cam sensor circut replaced cam sensor still dies could it be the crank sensor? thank you Michael Dale


cam sensor is only half of the cam circuit, the other half of the cam circuit is the magnet on the timing chain. the cam sensor reads from the magnet every time the engine completes a revolution,
what happens is the magnet on the chain will break into smaller piece which makes the sensor harder to read every time the engine make a complete revolution.
most likely you'll need to replace the timing chain to fix this.

Cam position sensor broke


ok easy fix. this is common on ALL ford w this style cam sensor,3.0 eats them for lunch. the sensor base has bushings like a real distributor, they get wore and fail. you can get new from ford, or reman at auto parts about 100 bucks. they come w the sensor installed but as with either, you need the allginment tool, looks like a little hockey puck, that only come from ford to set up or check engine light wont shut off. it will run without this but poorly. if you need more advice just post a comment to this and ill do my best to advise you

2005 ford excursion cam sensor location I need to change the cam sensor and the crank sensors on my excursion and i do not know where they are located


On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.

Cam sensor


Well most cam sensors are set at an exact location no adjustment, but if you havent got a repair manual for the specific car you are working on then .050 inches is normally the clearance on cam sensors. So try hat and let me know how ya did... Hope that does it for ya
