Default how do i remove the camshaft position sensor on 95' ranger with 4.0l ?

So i am trying to replace the camshaft position sensor on my 95 ranger with the 4.0l v6.I cant seem to figure out how to get to the mounting bolts.do i have to remove the intake manifold? if yes,do i just need to undo the bolts that connect the manifold to the block or will i have to undo more?

Did you try thru the rf wheel well? I think that is how I have gotten to them in the past.

Sounds like you wil have to pull the upper intake off then, it has been a while since I have done one.

CMP Removal
Position crankshaft to TDC of cylinder No. 1. Remove upper intake manifold. Unplug harness connector from CMP sensor. Remove CMP sensor holdown and CMP sensor.

Upper intake removal
1.Unplug electrical connectors at air by-pass valve, throttle position sensor, and intake air temperature sensor. Remove snow/ice shield. Remove throttle cable bracket.
2.Disconnect cable from ball stud on throttle body. Remove air cleaner-to-throttle body air inlet tube. Disconnect upper intake manifold vacuum connectors. Disconnect PCV valve from rocker cover.
3.Disconnect spark plug wires at rear of manifold. Remove canister purge line from fitting in throttle housing. On Aerostar, remove engine oil dipstick tube retaining bolt.
4.On all models, remove A/C line-to-upper manifold bolt. Remove 6 upper manifold retaining bolts. Remove upper intake and throttle body, as an assembly, from lower intake and fuel supply manifolds.

CMP Installation
1.Lubricate oil pump drive pinion, flange and O-ring. DO NOT get oil above mounting flange.
2.Rotate crankshaft until TDC mark on damper is accessible. Place a mark on the damper at 26 degrees After Top Dead Center 1.34 inches (34 mm) counterclockwise from TDC mark. Rotate crankshaft to position No. 1 cylinder at TDC.

5.Connect CID Testing Wiring Harness (T94T-50-B) to sensor as follows:
Red harness wire to battery positive terminal.
Black harness wire to battery negative terminal.
White harness lead to voltmeter positive lead.
Voltmeter negative lead to battery negative terminal.
Rotate engine 2 revolutions to take up slack in timing chain, and verify that No. 1 cylinder is on compression stroke. Continue to rotate crankshaft until 26 degree ATDC mark lines up with timing pointer.

NOTE: Voltmeter will register battery voltage when sensor closes and completes circuit.


NOTE: Final movement to set sensor must be counterclockwise direction.


6.While rotating sensor, note exact point where sensor switches from zero to battery voltage.
Rotate sensor clockwise past switching point from battery voltage to zero volts. Rotate sensor counterclockwise and stop at exact point voltmeter switches from zero volts to battery voltage. Tighten CMP sensor hold down bolt to 22-31 Inch Lbs. Disconnect testing harness and connect sensor harness.
