Q: Q: Camshaft position sensor

asked by on

Where can I find the camshaft position sensor in my 2001 Mazda tribute?

The camshaft position sensor on your vehicle is located near the front of the engine slightly to the left (when standing facing the motor). It is a very small black plastic piece that plugs into the side of the engine and is usually held on with one bolt.

For additional assistance with replacing your camshaft position sensor, I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to replace.
