Question 1995 Mustang 3.8 Camshaft Position Sensor Tool. Where can I buy one?

Does anyone know where I can buy a camshaft position sensor tool?

I was trying to buy a code reader for my car, but when I looked at the plugs on the ones at the auto stores it didn't look like any of the plugs matched the one on my car.

You've tried Autozone?

If not, you can only get it at a Ford parts shop.

In this day and age, it's amazing that a shop can survive without spending thousands of dollars every year buying all the latest specialty tools from each car manufacturer. Today, it seems you can't complete even the most routine job - such as replacing a timing belt - without these new tools. One question our hotline callers often ask is how to align a camshaft position sensor synchronizer without Ford's special tool.

In this article, I am using a 1995-1998 3.8L Ford Windstar as an example. Usually the problem starts after engine work has been done. Maybe the timing cover has been removed or the engine was replaced. Either situation requires the synchronizer to be installed and timed to the engine. The service manual states that a "special tool" is required to index the vane inside the synchronizer to the housing. As you read through the procedure, you may be thinking, "I don't have that tool - now what?"

Good news! You can line up the synchronizer without a special tool and without a lot of extra time. Here's how:
