top dead center of the engine under the plastic that says powerstroke(or whatever it says, I forget)

Black cap that spins off, about 3 inches across... drain lever on the back passenger side of the housing under that cap

The fuel filter and seperator is all in one under the plastic engine cover right in front of the radiator. Has a plastic cover you need to remove to replace the filter and a valve on the side with a yellow lever I think you turn it towards the front to open to drain the water out. Make sure you have a catch can. You can add a piece of hose to the valve first.

yep...run some 3/8" hose with a small hose clamp off the pipe that ends way to short off that valve and zip tie it under the truck so when you drain it you can catch it in a pan. otherwise it will make one hell of a mess. The CPS is a Cam Position Sensor. Buy one Approx $15-30. keep it in the glove box and it will save ya from being stranded. do a search on this site for CPS and you will find alot of info on it. It takes about 5 minutes to install once yours craps out and it will eventually with no warning. check the other threads to get the right part number so that you get the cheaper one that will work for your truck.

cam position sensor?

all I know is when it goes completely out, your screwed unless you have a spare, and thats a personal experience, lol...

if I remember right, it relays the position if the camshaft to the computer so it knows when to fire injectors and stuff like that so... no info to the pcm, no running engine
