Camshaft Position Sensor?

I got a letter from Ford on replacing/ inspecting the CPS for a recall. What does it do? How do you know it is bad? Any other thoughts?

It is a sensor that mounts under your water pump. It does what it says, it monitors the cam shaft position. If your truck is running, it's probably just fine, but it is a recall due to soo many failing.

Once it fails, you can be stranded on the side of the road.

Well its like a hit and miss with this subject some it will make thier truck not run and some will run just fine. I'd go have the dealer go ahead and fix it since it is free.
