Camshaft Sensor Change - Help

Hello All,

After lots of hours and some days of googling i think i found the root cause of my car problem.

I have a Ford Focus 2006 mk2 1.6 tdci 109hp (80kw)

Resuming the symptom:
When i pass 2500rpm the car just stop accelerating the RPM goes to 0 and then car turns off.

I thought it might be the MAF so i turned it off and also i have it cleaned and test with out being on and some error.

So more 1 day googling and it looks like it might be the camshaft sensor...

First question:
Would this fit my car

Second question: Where is this sensor located? Anyone can give me some techincal manual for my car or some help?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi, you really need a diag for errorcodes from your engine before throwing parts at it, without the diag you are blindfolded... Diag tool costs less than the sensor... To verify the engine code look at the sticker in the engine compartment, sensor located on the head, normally the side facing backwards..
