I have an '02 mustang that developed a chirping noise that sounds exactly like the cam position sensor noise that went out on my '02 taurus. The usual suspects were checked; water pump, alternator, idler, tensioner, etc. The water pump and idler both have some play in the bearings. They don't seem to be the culpret.
The chirping seems to be coming in the area of the CPS which is located directly above and behind the water pump on the timing chain cover. The chirping is intermittant. My daughter was driving the car the other night, when the noise started, and advised that it stalled while at a stop sign several times. It now seems to run fine. The MIL has not been "tripped" so no codes are present.
Is it possible the Cam Position sensor assembly is bad?
have the same problem?
