If your motor has "locked up" it sounds like replacement or re-build time...how do you know the camshaft is the problem? Camshaft, or crankshaft...or oil problem...sounds best to replace the motor.

1998 ford ranger xlt 3.0 auto/ac 2wheel Now have clickingsound. I know probably push rods. But do u need to replace rocker, cam, cam followers at the same time.


have it checked out professionally as it may be worn rocker arm bushes/shaft or push rods as you say
unless there is cam damage ( rare ) then it is not necessary to replace the cam shaft.
cam followers may be hydraulic and can be checked

Where is the cam shaft senser on a ford ranger 2.5 td 2002


Ford did not put a 2.5 in a Ranger, maybe a 2.3 ?
2.3 = 2007-01-27_154722_2.gif
3.0 - The CMP sensor& synchronizer/shaft are located behind the intake manifold (i.e., back near the firewall on a Ranger) on the top of the cylinder block. If you just need to replace the sensor, it is a simple job of unplugging the electrical connector and removing the screws holding the sensor in place. Here is a sketch of the sensor to give you an idea what to look for:

Changing a timing belt on a 2.3l ranger 1996 - belt did not break,can i just put the new one on without moving cam,crank etc..


Sure, no problem. For safety sake, disconnect battery so it doesn't get "bumped" via starter. And be sure to NOT move cam or crank.

I have a 2.3 how do i install the timing belt


Align harmonic damper mark at TDC with #1 piston at top. You'll have to remove harmonic damper on front of crank. (You can do it without removing the damper, but it's a real pain in the rear.) This WILL require an industrial strength impact wrench to break the bolt loose. Pull spark plugs. Makes last step easy and you can use a screwdriver to make sure #1 is at top. You'll see tick marks on the crank pulley, the cam pulley and the auxillary shaft pulley. These marks must line up. Use a straight edge (ruler, piece of flat metal stock, etc.) to make sure they're aligned. Pull tensioner arm back and lock it there. Install belt around pullies. Now comes the tricky part. Whne you release the tensioner, the auxillary shaft will rotate at least one tooth off of alignment. Release tension and compensate auxillary shaft postion. You want the marks aligned with the belt under tension. Now using a long wrench, rotate the engine clockwise by turning the crank balancer bolt. After 2 complete revolutions back to TDC, confirm timing mark alignment on the pullies. If they're off, redo it until they're aligned. Good luck.

1997 ford ranger cam shaft position sensor


If you have the 3.0 L or 4.0 L V6 engine, the cam position sensor is located on the top rear of the engine. If you have the 2.3 L 4 cyl. engine, you will find it on the left front of the engine behind the oil pump pulley.
