CPS Question

I have been having issues an annoying vibration at idle. Decided to change out the CPS awhile ago to the Borg Warner. Bad idea. While it did smooth out the idle, it left us dead on the road during our vacation. I have read about all the different kinds on the threads and want to try the International blue sensor. I have also read that the blue Ford sensor is the same, just different brand names. Can anyone verify which one to get? Please and thank you!

Get your CPS from FOrd

Get yours from Ford, I get about 2yrs out of a CPS and I go down too Ford like yesterday and spent $35 on new one and will replace it later today. I leave one in the glove box and have the tools I need too swap it out, don't get the junk ones from the parts store.

Did you buy it off the internet? If so, may I ask which site did you buy from?
