Damn man. If you were in Georgia, I'd say come by with a cold beer or 2 and I'd sling it in there in 20 minutes. What a ripoff.

thanks man. I've been worrying about it lately. So once i heard it i said ok time to do it. Not going to wait for it to get worse. I don't want to put a new 5k motor just because i didn't do a $285.00 job.

hmm ok do you know if the 4cyl models have this sensor or is it just for a v6 set up for 2 cams?

i have a single cam (OHV) over head valve 3.0L. I know these and the 3.8L mustang motors have this problem. But i don't know about the 2.3 and the 2.5. Im more then sure that the 2.3 does not. And 2.5 is a mazda motor and i have no idea if it does. And the 2001 and up rangers 4.0L are (SOHC) single over head cams.
