I have a 1994 Taurus GL with a V6 Vulcan. Does this engine have a camshaft position sensor or is it apart of the distributor assembly. I have searched the forms for and can't find anything pertaining to a 94 Taurus. Earliest info I found for that sensor was for a 1996 Taurus. Is it because I have a distributor cap? Also looked on RockAuto and did not find the sensor for my year of Taurus.

Thanks David

P.S.
Is 1000 RPM normal for Idling?

That is high RPM. Should be around 800 prm or so.

Could be a bad IAC valve.

Could be a vacuum leak. Check all hoses for any not connected or badly cracked.

You might check the throttlebody and clean that too.

Your car does not have a camshaft synchronizer because you have a distributor. In '96 vulcan's went to a DIS, which is where the cam synchronizer took the place of the distributor.

1000 RPM is fine if it's cold idle, but bad if the engine is warmed up.

Oh..................... When the car is warm and in PARK it idles at 1000 RPM. When the car is warm and is in drive with the brake applied it idles at 800 RPM. Is this a problem?

I believe normal idle is 750 RPM warm in drive so 800 isn't a big difference. Park should be higher than Drive. I believe normal idle for warm in Park is 850-900 RPMs.
