      A:

      Symptoms of a Bad Camshaft Sensor: Engine Sputtering :The camshaft sensor communicates the positional rotation of the camshaft to the on-board computer. When the censor malfunctions, the readouts may throw off spark timing which will impact fuel economy and cause the engine to misfire in some, if not all, cases. Poor Acceleration: Since the camshaft is not rotating properly because the sensor is not regulating its speed, the pistons that the sensor monitors will also be out of sync. Fuel will be delivered to the engine intermittently, resulting in poor piston function, and the car will struggle to accelerate and maintain speed. Over time this condition will worsen as more of the car's engine components are affected. Stalling/Inability to Start: At low speeds a bad camshaft sensor will cause the car's engine to stall. The engine may also experience an inability to turn over, resulting in the car not starting. This may not happen all the time since the car's on-board computer will use the last readouts from the camshaft sensor to operate the pistons and manage fuel flow, which will allow the car to start; however, the driver will continue to experience the other symptoms mentioned above.

      A:

      The Ford Ranger's camshaft sensor would be located on the engine block and is used to synchronize the firing of the electronic fuel injectors. If your Ranger becomes hard to start, idles roughly, or stumbles upon acceleration, you may need to install a new cam sensor.

  • Q:

    My sensor has 2 mounting bolt holes and the new one has only one.I see this may be because the steering gear box is in the way of one of the mounting bolts.
    Is this why?

      Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
