      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Camshaft Sensor:

      CMPS is fairly easy to change. Only obstables are the serpentine belt and power steering pump. After removing the belt, there are three big holes in the power steering pump pulley you line up to access the mounting bolts to remove the pump (Bolts are either 13mm or 15mm. I forget exactly). No need to disconnect the fluid lines on the pump, however you might have to remove the Schrader valve cap on the fuel rail to give you that extra bit of clearance to move the pump out of the way. Now you can finally access the CMPS. Before removing the sensor, I suggest cleaning away all the dirt and crud that builds up round the top of the sensor so that nothing falls into the motor after it's out. A can of brake cleaner should do the trick just fine. Then a 10mm bolt is all that holds the sensor in the motor, and also of course, disconnecting it from the wiring harness. Installation of new sensor is opposite of removal.

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Camshaft Sensor:

      Installation requires removal of serpentine belt then power steering pump(front motor mount to access pump mounting bolts through holes in pulley)...time consuming (motor must be supported and slightly raised to get to 3 pwr steering pump mounting bolts)

          A:

          If your looking at the engine, look right at the power steering pump at the top. Now, look under the pump right in the top of the timing cover. You will see the cam sensor. The wiring comes up towards the front and connects right in on the front side of the engine. For further assistance please feel free to call 1-877-238-2623 and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

          A:

          Yes, if the engine is up with a bad or faulty sensor, it may cause misfiring, motor vibration or backfires, accelerating might be hesitant and abnormal shaking during engine idle might occur.

Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

          A:

          it is located behind the power steering pump. You need to remove the power steering pump to get to it which requires removing the engine mount next to it to get the bottom bolt out of the power steering pump. The sensor is directly behind the power steering pump. You can follow the cable that goes behind the pump. It is the only one there.
