Default 2005 Ford F-250 XLT 5.4L Cam Shaft Position Sensor Problems





Anyone know anything about Trucks. I took my truck to Autozone after my check engine light came on, and it came up that my Cam Shaft Position sensor was bad. So my truck has two, I replaced one, and started it turned it on and the light went off, then I took it for a drive and it was fine, but I went to turn around and it quit on me. Then the check engine light came back on, so I switched the one I took out with the other old one, and tried it again thinking only one was bad. And it did the same thing, so are both my sensors bad or is their another problem?

Any input would be appreciated!

Dont see alotta newer fords come through my work but does that 5.4 have VVT (variable valve timing) if so that could cause problems with the cam sensor circuit...

It could be a new code as well. Have them check it again and see what's going on.

Autozone is just reading you a error code number. You need more detailed information before you start installing parts or you end up wasting money IMO. If you have a check engine light on due to a cam shaft position sensor it would be several reason which I am sure Autozone listed for you (that is their sales pitch) If you can post the error code number I can give you some more insight. Some of the newer vehicles will post an error for the camshaft sensor and truly have a problem with the crank shaft sensor.

After you install the new sensors you have to clear the codes from the vehicles computer or the light will stay on. I am not much of a mechanic, but I do know that much. Is it possible that those sensors are dependent upon one another? What I mean is that when one is bad it might take the other one out with it.
