Engine Performance problem
1996 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 123400 miles
I just replace the cyl. Heads and took the engine out of car. Replace must of the parts that need it to be replace. I did something that I was not supposed to touch. I loosened up the camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) but never took it out. I put the engine back on and got code P0303, then we tried to align the sensor to 38 degrees as instructed on the Haynes Repair Manual and got code P0306. We are going to be testing the sensor it self to see if it is faulty. We tried to move the sensor a couple of degrees left and right and we sometimes changed it to either of both codes that were gotten before. When we moved the CMP to the left getting less than 38 degrees we got code P0303 and the closer we were to the CMP or the greater we went from 38 degrees we got P0306. We, as said before, never took out the CMP but simply loosened it. Before we got the car, the owners of before us had the car tested, and was also given a miss fire code, do not remember the actual code. Please advise for the right degrees for the position of sensor, because we were given information that it was supposed to be 75 degrees instead of 38 degrees autozone repair manuals site. Thank you.
