CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR TAURUS LX
1998 Ford Other
My car has started missing and I had the plugs and wires changed, hoping this would stop the problem. It didn't. Yesterday the " service engine soon" light came on and I took it to Autozone to have the codes pulled. They told me that the camshaft position sensor had gone bad and I plopped down the inexpensive $35 to buy a replacement part. Now my problem is that I've asked alot of people where this sensor is located so I can replace it, but I keep getting conflicting answers. Someone told me it was located at the back of the engine or maybe even under the intake. Someone else told me it was located on the top of the engine and still someone else told me the car doesn't even have a camshaft position sensor but a crankshift position sensor. My question: Where is the sensor located and is the sensor the cause of my car's misfire?
