Q:would a bad sensor cause my 96 ranger to run poorly? I have alreeady changed plugs, wires,and coils and this truck still has a bad miss
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.

Q:Where is this sensor located on my 96 ranger 2.3 engine
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.
A:The original factory design of the camshaft position sensor is no longer being used by Ford or anyone else. Because of the difficulty associated with accessing the lower bolt, the new sensors don't have a lower bolt hole (even if you buy the Motorcraft brand from Ford). Although this makes the sensor easier to install, carefully examine the lower dowel to make certain that it is fully inserted in the mounting hole (you should not be able to see the dowel at all), and check to see that the sensor is flush with the side of the engine block. Failure to do so will result in a poor running condition..
