Hi Guys,

I have read here but cant find info. My EF II is giving code 214 - cam angle sensor. I have read that yes it runs without it. Ford would not have put it there if it wasnt needed. Can anyone tell me what I can expect to see if I fit a new sensor ? IE what decisions is the ecu basing on this input ? The car runs fine but im guessing it will do something better maybe fuel efficiency etc if it had this input. Has anyone fitted one and noticed a change ? Thanks for your input.

The coil pack engines use wasted spark, so as far as ignition goes it makes no difference if the ecu can see the cam angle sensor or not.

On the injection side, the ecu cant guarantee batch firing on the correct stroke without it. This is not that big of a deal because the firing of the injector is not really timed that well anyway - injectors 1,3, and 5 open all at the same time, then on the next revolution of the crank stroke 2, 4 and 6 open. The worst case is the ecu fires the injectors on the wrong stroke and the fuel hangs around in the runners for 1/2 a rpm longer. This can make idle go a bit rough and fuel economy can suffer slightly but the power will still be the same.

The AU engines have pseudo-sequential efi so the difference is more noticeable.
