It right behind the bottom pulley on the right hand side.Alittle easier to change if you take off the fan belt.One bolt,unplug,pull it straight out,might have to wiggle it a bit to pull out.Don't break it off in there.

thanks randy, wish i would have seen your post sooner, i took it to a local shop(in laws) . he had coil packs off, alternator off, and bottom radiator hose off. but only charged 30 bucks..cant argue with that.

I have a 2002 ford ranger 3.0 v6 2 valve
The problem with it is that does not accelerate over 3000 rpm
when on a slope the engine accelerates to 4500 rpm
and check the sensor camshaf, change ignition coil, spark plugs, spark plug wires, MAF sensor, fuel pressure is 65psi,
when I press the throttle pedal the engine fails.
many say that the fault is camshaf sensor and not to do
I install my computer to another ford and realize the test works fine on my computer for 10 minutes in the other ford and works well
I check the timing chain was well
anyone have a solution to this problem can not find any solution to this problem
no fault codes, if they accelerated over 3000rpm the 3 oxygen sensors lower their voltage to 0.00 volts
