View Full Version : Crankshaft Sensor? Help!

07-13-2003, 09:20 PM
Ok...the engine light came on...code 214 "Cylinder Identification Circuit" malfunction. Is this the Crankshaft sensor?

I have the OEM manuals from Ford and there appears to be a Cylinder Identification Sensor mounted on the LH side of the engine UNDER the throttle body (or there abouts).

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

CID= Cam Sensor not crank sensor. Yes it is kinda under the TB.

Thanks for the replys. If I'm looking at this correctly, the Camshaft sensor is a round looking disk that mounts vertically down and is towards the front of the engine...no where near the TB.

The CID sensor I see in the manual mounts horizontally somewhere under the TB.

I'm sure I'm missing something here...

The Camshaft Sensor (CID) is attached to what would otherwise be the distributor shaft on the engine. It is a shaft geared off the camshaft.

The sensor mounts on top of this shaft to the left of the center of the engine, directly below the supercharger snout and is canted towards the passenger side above the water pump.
