Question about Dodge Ram
I hate to tell you this, but there is not Camshaft Position Sensor on any 1.9L Single or Dual OHC. I assume you had someone read a Diagnostic Trouble Code from your PCM. They probably told you that you needed a Camshaft Position Sensor, and then offered to sell you one. I would recommend changing your spark plugs and your plug cables with FACTORY REPLACEMENTS. This will usually make the DTC go away. Aftermarket plugs and wires rarely work well for this engine. If you are looking for a CRANKSHAFT position sensor, look between the engine and transmission on the back side of the transmission. It is also known as the "transmission input speed sensor". More often than not though, your engine will not fire up if the Crank position sensor is not working. Hope this helps.

The camshaft sensor is located right above the crankshaft pulley on the passengers side of the front cover of the engine. It will be a 3 pin sensor either gray or black in color. There is a pointer that is attached to the sensor and it is either gold or silver in color. There is also a recall out on this camshaft sensor. If the color of the sensor is black then it should qualify for the recall. If you get in touch with a Ford dealer they should be able to help you with your recall if the sensor is black since it is a safety recall. As far as your exhaust pressure sensor it is located on the front of the engine right by the heater core hose a little to the passengers side of the center of the front of the engine. there will be a tube attached to the bottom of the sensor that goes from it to the front of the exhaust manifold on the very front of the passengers side exhaust manifold.

The crankshaft position sensor is located on the transmission bell housing on the right side (if you're facing the engine from the transmission side). The camshaft position sensor is towards the top center of the timing cover on the front of the motor. They both have 3 wire connectors that are virtually identical.

DO U UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF "OUT OF PHASE"?? IT IS THE MECHANICAL TIMING OF THE SIGNAL FROM EACH SENSOR TO THE ENGINE CONTROL COMPUTER, WHAT IS THE CODE? ALSO TELL YOUR DAD (NICELY) THAT ATROUBLE CODE DOES NOT ALWAYS MEANS A FAILED SENSOR, ONLY A PROBLEM WITH THE SIGNAL, THAT CAN BE THE WIRING, IT CAN BE MECHANICAL OR IT CAN BE THE SENSOR, MANY POEPLE DON'T GET THAT AND SPEND TON'S OF MONEY CHASING CODES.I HAVE DONE THIS FOR 35 YEARS AND AM SURE OF WHAT I AM SAYING 100%
