This chart is missing the location of the CHT (Cylinder Head Temperature) sensor, located on the right front head, behind the right side of the alternator.

Where does the fuel relay senor plug into on a 99 lightning. I noticed it hanging on the frame under the radiator. I’ve searched the internet and can’t seem to find an answer. Please help!

How hard is it to change the camshaft position sensor on a 2004 Ford F150 with the 5.4 triton

Kenny,
Not difficult at all. Depending on which side it is, you may need to remove the air filter tube to gain access to it. Other than that, it is disconnect the connector on the sensor, unbolt the sensor, and remove it. Reverse the procedure to install. That simple.
You may also want to consider donating to a good cause. For a small donation of $9.99 it would allow the website to provide even more information. Just a thought.
Thank you for your input and good luck.

Where is located the manifold absolute pressure sensor on Ford Triton 5400 ( F150 1997)?

This motor doesn’t have one. It does have a mass air sensor, and a Delta pressure feedback sensor.

It is on the passenger side of the engine, a little bit behind the battery junction box. It is mounted to the top of a support bracket. Look to the direct left of the viscous cooling fan. Best of luck.

Hello Troy. It sounds like you have at least two separate problems. With the P0720 code and the surge when shifting, this is most likely a bad transmission output speed sensor on the tail end of the transmission. The p0443 code is an evap code that could be causing the rough idle. For this code, check the gas cap for tightness, then inspect the evap canister. The canister purge solenoid could be the problem and can cause a rough idle.

Hello. By the air box. Two torx head screws to take it out and clean it.
