1994 Ford Ranger Question: I NEED TO KNOW WHERE THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR IS LOCATED ON THE 1994 2.3L RANGER ENGINE?

First and foremost, if the timing belt was going out, it WILL cause your engine to skip and misfire before it breaks, because it is usually very stretched out and sloppy by that time. A worn timing belt can set a cam sensor code,so properly replace the belt and then clear all the codes. If the Timing belt is even 1 tooth off, it will set a cam or even a crank sensor code, so BE SURE that you have the timing belt on perfectly, or codes will appear until the belt is properly aligned.

same thing happened to my 2.3 ranger, replaced timing belt and cam sensor...timing is perfect, did it 15 times, and the camsensor is new and it was better for a week n now back to the same problem and check engine light back on reading same codes.
