Which brand of Camshaft Position Sensor to buy?
My 99 F250 died as I stopped at a signal a couple of weeks ago. I started it and it died again. Then I started it and kept the idle up while in neutral and put in drive and made it home. Then, a couple of days later I got a letter from Ford "reminding" me of the recall on the CPS. This was the first I have seen this recall. Well I have checked the batteries, changed the fuel filter and still dies after getting warm. But if I do keep it idleing up it will stay running. But let it slow to idle, and it is just like I turn the key off.
I called the dealer and asked if I could bring the letter and sensor in to get a replacement but they want the truck there. So I was going to go buy one so I could take it there and have them either put in the new one from the recall and I keep the one I just bought or just give me the new one from the recall and then either way I will have a spare to keep in the glove box.
So, I have looked around and can't find a "black" one. Is there one that I can get from one of the national auto part stores, advance, o'reilly, autozone, that is considered to be good and won't cause problems? If not, is there a good place to buy online but not pay through the nose? Thanks..
