Hello everyone first time poster here. I am posting on the behalf of my uncle who has no knowledge of computers whatsoever, and needs help regarding the camshaft position sensor. He's got a 4WD 98' Ranger, 4.0L manual. Any help at all would be much appreciated! The following is all of the information I have at the moment, and will be keeping him informed daily on any help anyone may give. Below is exactly what he wrote for me to ask you guys:

CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR

Where is your sensor harness connector pointing? I was pretty sure mine was pointing straight back before being removed.

I already know about the 54 degrees from engine centerline. What I need to know is the above question from someone who has the 98' 4.0L. Thank you very much.


Again that's all I've got for now. Much thanks for any help out there!

If the engine was started or turned over after installation of the replacement sensor, it won't matter, you will need to reset the engine to tdc on compression stroke and follow fsm...

Here's some info that may be useful ,the process is the same for both 3.0 & 4.0 but the position is different .
