    hey guys,just got my 2007 Ford F-150 inspected and it didn’t pass emissions,it has a 5.4 triton motor,it said OBD diagnostic trouble code p0345 and under that it says OBD permanent fault code 7foa11,I googled the trouble code and it said cam sensor?my mechanic buddy is in the hospital so I can’t ask him for direction,I looked up how to repair and it only showed the 4.6 ,would they be in the same spot on the 5.4?seems easy enough to change ,not sure which side is bad,is it best to replace both?as always thanks in advance

    Take a look. Right in front where you can get at them.

    P0345 is bank 2, meaning driver's side. Look on front face of head (facing radiator) you will see a 2-wire connector connected to a black protrusion held in with one bolt. Unplug, unbolt, pull out while twisting, Replace. They are cheap and known failure points.

    Doubt it would be needed, but, hey, they're cheap. And yea the tritons are gas hogs. I average 15, down to 14 in weather like we have now.

    And that's after correcting all the problems the previous owner (a municipality) left behind, like dragging brake caliper, never changed plugs, and multiple marginal coil packs. Among others. Of course mine pushes on 6000 pounds pretty hard.
