      A:

      First you have to know where 24 degrees AFTER Top Dead Center is, and Once you have it marked you can attach a logic probe (a logic probe looks like a test light but a wire for each side of the battery and it has an LED in it instead of a bulb) or a volt meter to the signal wire (the wire in the center on the connector), mark 24 degrees after TDC and turn the engine slowly to your mark. Stop there. Now loosen the cam sensor synchronizer (the part that looks like the bottom of a distributor) and turn it the way you would a distributor until you find the place where the signal switches. The LED in the probe will go off and on as you rock the engine back and forth past this point. Setting the cam sensor has NOTHING to do with initial timing. Because for ignition timing, all the cam sensor does is tell us which cylinder is #6. After the cam signal goes LOW, (stock spec is 25 deg ATDC of cylinder #1) the next RISING edge of the CRANK pulse will occur as exactly 10 deg BTDC of cylinder #6.

      A:

      Look over any automotive guide or check with your mechanic regarding your particular make and model regarding the sensor's exact position and what other parts must be removed to reach it. Some vehicles also have two camshaft position sensors.

  • Q:

    Will this camshaft position sensor replace the one on my 1994 Ford Explorer w/ a 4.0L engine? I have trouble code 214 on my OBDI reader which, I believe, means this part is bad. Don't want to order it if its the wrong part or is unecessary. Thanks for your assistance.
