Engine Performance problem
1997 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
had diagnostic checked. Bad camshaft sensor. Replaced myself. Warning lights went out afterward (briefly). Performed 2nd diagnostic check. Same result, camshaft positioning sensor. What did I do, or not do, to cause this? Camshaft sensor was the only part I replaced. Is there more than just removing and replacing the old sensor with a new sensor? After removal of old sensor I did see what looked to be a small magnetic object that I believe was the broken piece from the old sensor lying on top of whatever part the sensor connects to. I removed the broke magnetic piece and replaced with the new sensor. Advice please?
have the same problem?
