Installing a Ford Cam Sensor ( Cam Syncronizer) without the special tool.

This being the only time I will probably ever install one of these, I just could not justify the cost of the special tool. Knowing it was essentially a distributor that told the PCM when the engine was at top dead center, I used a little common sense and another Ford, that uses the same sensor, to verify.

Installing a Ford Synchronizer
Ford Camshaft synchronizer's are a common failure. Some techs aren't familiar with them so they may not be comfortable with them. Unfortunately the service manuals aren't very clear in describing the install process. I've made this video to help you understand them, and show how to properly install them.

How to replace camshaft synchronizer 02 Ford Taurus
This is a video I made to help people with replacing a camshaft synchronizer, this is the first real how to video I've made, comment with questions at the end when I mention the check engine light, it's only to indicate this was done correctly, otherwise you will get an engine light because the timing will be off. This car didn't have an engine light before or after this job, only the loud noise also at 4:24 I hold up the new one and call it the new sensor, I meant to say "new part"
