Crank/Cam sensor


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Just a question about these two, which does what do? Is the timing just on the cam sensor or is it on the crank and the rpm is that on the cam or crank? Got me a bit confused.


Doing research as to what stand alone management to fit and got me wondering about the sensors.


Oh and another thing, what is the crank trigger on a 1.6/2.0 Zetec, 36-1?

Crank sensor is used to determine crank position.. based on a 36-1 pattern..


Cam sensor is used to determine engine phase.. eg which 2 strokes is it on.. with the crank sensor the ecu can determine exactly what's going on.
