Although the machined boss that the camshaft position sensor sits against has two threaded holes, the sensor is held in place by one single machine screw ("bolt" to most folks).I would greatly appreciate any information on what the two screws are that hold the sensor in place. Are the special? Any information would be appreciated. I get a code of 214 when checking with a OBD1 scanner.

The other threaded hole is obscured by the connection leg of the sensor.
If you have misplaced the bolt, it is an M8-1.0x20, with a captive washer.
The hex head of the bolt is typically 13mm, although I have seen 10mm heads.
The diameter and thread pitch of this bolt is identical to an intake manifold stud - the holes in the head were drilled and tapped identically.
To remove the sensor, one must first remove the intake manifold (clever design, huh?).
It behooves you to check and clean the harness connection, and do the other resistance/voltage tests before going to the effort of pulling the manifold.
There are a myriad of other threads that discuss this - do a se
On my sensor, there appears to be two. One maybe a fake. I am also replacing the time belt. Looks like I can get better access to the crank case sensor. I will do this when I replace the timing belt. I have been very fortunate to have had this belt get over 150,000 plus miles. Appears to still be in good shape. Thank you for responding. The bolt or screw looks like it is special. Wish it was a metric hex! If you hear strange moaning and groaning echoing from west Georgia area of Carrollton. It's just me!Are you sure that you are having a problem with the sensor itself, as opposed to it not being plugged in good after being bumped several times while attempting to change the fuel filter?
Obligatory: Ask me how I know this!
I'm not sure how your wife is involved here, but we can leave that for another day.My camshaft senor difinitely appears to have two mounting screws. Wish the bolts were metic heads. Wife would be much better. Thank you for you infor and response!
