Default this is crazy! I have the chirp AGAIN!

This is getting stupid, I replace my cam sync and sensor last month, only for this month for it to start chirping again. It wasnt the motorcraft crap either, it was whatever brand ford's is. Has anyone ever had their's chirp after they replaced it? I mean its something every month these days, I feel like buying a new truck.

Update.
Chirp seems to be coming from the cam sync area. It chirps constantly when on the gas but has a silent idle, the cam sync and sensor are under warranty. Should I replace?

But it should not be common when the cam sync and sensor are not even 2 months old

Replace them and see what happens. I dont blame you fro selling it after you get the chirp twice in two months.

Are you sure you installed it correctly? Did you bang it against anything before you put it in? Did you oil the new cam sync up before you installed it?

To be absolutely sure it's the cam sync, take the belt off and start the truck up. Rev it a bit, see if the squeak is gone.

I've had the belt system chirp before and this is a different kind of chirp. Besides I had my buddy rev the engine while i looked at it and it is def coming from the back. I did oil it and i don't remember anything hitting it. I did a lot of research before i installed it.

FYI - Motorcraft is Ford's brand.

If you bought the Dorman one, you better replace it soon.
