Question about 2002 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
Got told cam shaft senser has gone wrong on my ford ranger 2.5 td 2002 just need to know where to find it and if its a hard or easey job
Posted by Anonymous on
Ford did not put a 2.5 in a Ranger, maybe a 2.3 ?
3.0 - The CMP sensor& synchronizer/shaft are located behind the intake manifold (i.e., back near the firewall on a Ranger) on the top of the cylinder block. If you just need to replace the sensor, it is a simple job of unplugging the electrical connector and removing the screws holding the sensor in place. Here is a sketch of the sensor to give you an idea what to look for:

I believe it is on the left front of the engine behind the oil pump pulley.

there is a tool to line up the sensor while at top dead center on #1 cylinder you put it on top of the syncronizer fords name for the oil pump drive & interupter. good luck from schleck.

If you have the 3.0 L or 4.0 L V6 engine, the cam position sensor is located on the top rear of the engine. If you have the 2.3 L 4 cyl. engine, you will find it on the left front of the engine behind the oil pump pulley.

its right behind the intake manifold. its a B*&^h to get off but you need a special tool you can get a most auto part stores. you have to make sure your #1 piston is TDC on your compression stroke. then drop in your sensor, align it to what your specs say
