I can"t it seems ~ to find the ar of the camshaft place sensor on 1999 ranger 2.5L. OBD gave me the error code.Oil needle ~ above gauge sits at bottom if warming up, until engine temperature reaches around 1/3 temp. Then oil needle will shoot right into position and stay or will certainly jump around and also then continue to be at normal level. Does the camshaft position sensor and also oil gauge problem, quiet related?
Camshaft sensor is behind the oil pump pulley. You can see the if friend look very closely under the power steering pump indigenous the side. Through wheel well maybe ideal bet.Sent from mine iPhone using Tapatalk----------

I would indicate replacing the sending unit. That is placed on the next of the cylinder head, drivers side, rear. It has one wire. Once oil press is over 5-8 psi, the switch closes, and also grounds the gauge wire. There is a resistor in the circuit the will placed the gauge pointer about in the middle when the wire is grounded. You deserve to test by ground connection the cable yourself v the ignition switch in ~ above position. It have to read in the middle. I am expecting your sender to it is in a bit gummy, not closing till the engine is warm. It is fairly easy to replace, and can be done without law anything through the oil in the crankcase sump. Simply disconnect the single wire, unscrew the old switch, and screw in the brand-new switch. You might want to placed some pipe compound on the threads, or carefully use some Teflon tape(don"t get any inside the engine). Don"t overtighten.tom
