          A:

          Hi Blake, it's actually a good question! Certain engine codes with variable valve timing use two sensors. In those cases it is the same part number for both.

      • Q:

        how do i replace the camshaft position sensor on a 2005 ford expedition
        Asked on 2/17/2014 by pastor cabral from pawtucket rhode island

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Hi Pastor, happy to help you! Please follow the procedure for replacing the camshaft sensor on your Ford Expedition: Tools needed - Timing Wedge, 1/4" drive socket wrench and at least two extensions and a swivel, 3/4" driver socket wrench, extensions galore, swivel, torque wrench that measures in foot-pounds, 1/2" breaker bar with 3/8" adapter, large vice grips. Disconnect battery. Remove air intake tube. Unbolt power steering reservoir and move out of way. Unbolt power steering reservoir bracket. Remove PCV tube from valve cover. Unplug main harness on driver's side valve cover. Zip-tie the power steering reservoir and the harness out of the way. With the valve cover exposed, used compressed air to blow any dirt away from it, this will keep you from getting dirt in the valve train when you pull the cover off. Loosen the valve cover bolts (8mm). You do not need to completely remove them, as they retain themselves in the covers just fine once they're un-threaded. The ones that are out in the open are easily accessible. The rearmost will be a challenge. Try using a combination of 1/4" extensions, an 8mm deep well, and a swivel to get the back/center bolt loosened. Remove the bolt from the dipstick tube. Remove the Cam Position Sensor from the front of the head. Reverse the procedure for installing the same.
