Anyone else get a recall for Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP)
? I have a 00' F250 and have had it for about a year and looking at the symtoms for a bad CMP, my truck sure does fit the description. Anyone know how long this service takes, what's all involved?
•A failed camshaft position sensor will show up in a number of ways. The worst-case scenario is that there is no spark in the combustion chamber. Other symptoms can include excessively long cranking time when starting cold, rough running on an intermittent basis, poor idle, stumbling or hesitation, a drop in mileage and stalling upon acceleration. These symptoms may also be caused by a failure in the wiring of the sensor.
