Engine problem
2000 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 82000 miles

There is a chirp noise at idle coming from the front end. I had the serpentine belt checked at it is fine. The mechanic thought it may be coming from the transmission. What could be causing a chirping noise if not the belt?

Do you
have the same problem?

If you check right over the spot where the engine and trans bolt up together, just under the wire harness, you will see a sensor with a three wire connector on it. This is the camshaft position sensor. The shaft that drives it is called a syncronizer. They both need to be replaced, as this is probably the source of your noise. Verify the source of the noise and have a professional tehnician perform the repair since it has to be timed using a special tool. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
