Mustang P0010 "A" Camshaft Position

Thats what the code reader tells me. Can someone explain how to fix this? Or post a diagram of where this sensor is located. Thank you in advance

Did you change your oil lately or add some kind of additive to your oil lately?

I thought that was strange because that code is for a component that our engines don't have.

P0174 huh?

Anyway, good ole P0174....
My standard answer is to clean your Mass Air Flow sensor and to check the entire intake system for vacuum leaks. Also check the vacuum lines.

I just recently cleaned the throttle body, maybe i didnt tighten the hose clamps on the cai good enuff? I looked on a dtc website and it says posible vacuum leak in the hoses to the evap canister. What a coincidence that i just replaced the evap valve and purge flow sensor....

well you answered your own question. Anytime you do work on your car and then throw a CEL just simply go back over your work and double check everything.. If new parts were installed, inspect and test. Its very possible you installed a defective part.

as said above though, clean your MAF and also check the voltage make sure its functioning properly. I researched the code and other then cleaning the MAF and checking for vacuum leaks another possibility is a dirty fuel filter, so check your fuel pressure as well.

Or you guys actually know what you're talking about. I for one can't diagnose CELs to save my life
