It started squeaking right at the water pump area.what makes you think your cam syncro is bad?
From the parts searching online, like Napa, the sensor drive assembly is the camshaft synchronizer aka crank angle sensor aka etc etc. The sensor itself just sits on top, no moving parts. But I've seen threads where this thing seems to have multiple names. Whatever it is, I think we're talking the same thing.If your talking about the camshaft position sensor there ontop of the water pump.....i got mine fixed about 2 months ago due to it squeaking...my guy at the dealer said it wasnt the actual sensor on top(the black part) it was the entire sensor drive assembly...its like 1 foot long with the gear on it and everything and it costed me like $125 new direct from ford. he said if anyone ever needs them replaced get it direct from ford, not autozone or anything. And you need the special tool to align it properly after its set at TDC.(top dead center). Hope this helps.
That's cool. Looks like lots of shops bundle the tool with the parts as well.Auto Zone sold me the cam position sensor alignment tool for less than $15 when I was messing with mine during an engine swap. Make sure you get the motor as close to TDC as possible... You don't really need to go to the stealer for this job... Save some $!
