Exclamation Need Help Bad Cam Position Sensor

How do you replace a cam position sensor on a 96 3.8 mustang? Better yet how do you put it back in the right way because I took it out and replaced it and my car won't start now. Any help or point in the right dirrection would be great.

Short answer, pick up a Haynes manual at AutoZone, O'Reilly's etc.

There was somethig in the archives. If I get a chance, I'll do a search and post the link.

He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

"kscoyote" is right, get the Haynes book for 'FORD' Mustang '94 thru '04. All's not lost there skipper, the only thing you didn't do was mark that puppy's position when you took it out, but the horse is out of the barn now and you need a Syncro positionign tool or cam poition sensoring tool to bring it back in sync'. Finger walk your phone 'till you find the auto store that's got one. Ford service has them, if you've got a pal there maybe you can save a buck or two. The Haynes book will give you procedure for the alignment, i.e., the degrees to set the crank at for proper settings etc., etc. The sensor, by the way, tells your PCM when to start sequential injector firing, that's why your not starting. Hope this helps and good luck!

'95, white convertable, auto trans, under drive pulley, cai, 3:73 gear. Just enough snap for a 62 year old kid! (my wife's a blond so the top MUST be down, or she won't get in!!)
