You might try checking the shaft and or bearing on the camshaft sensor. I had a problem with my '99 Ranger making an intermittent squeak (that gradually became worse over time... audible mostly at low speed and idle), and that was the problem.

Apparently it's a fairly common problem with this type of Ford engine. It's also unfortunately not a cheap part, but it's so nice to not have that irritating squeak anymore.

Is it comming from the front or the back of the engine? Back could mean camshaft sensor, if its front more than likely it is a belt or pulley. Does it still squeak when the belt is off? Try cleaning the pulleys, clean all the crap and make them not shiney anymore using 400 grit, steal wool, etc. Pulleys shouldnt look like a mirror. Was the first belt you took of glazed and shiney?

I had the same problem with the belt squeeling and my mechnic replace the sping loaded idler, the other idler and the belt twice and it still did it. He found out one manufaturer made the belt a tiny bit too long. It took 3 belts, the last one from different manufacturer and it is now fixed. Good mechanic he only charged me for one belt and the idler parts and he ate the other 2 belts and the labor.
