Question about CPS sensor

I just bought an 02 F250 w/ the 7.3 diesel. I dont know if the CPS has been changed but it has a chirp. I sprayed WD on the alt, power steering, idler, and tensioner pullies and it stopped. I think it stopped when I got to the tensioner and it jiggles under revves so I would assume this is it but how do I find if the CPS has been replaced? Can I call a dealer w/ the VIN? Is there a limit on the recall time?

Call Ferd and give them the VIN# and they will tell you. They just sent me my fourth notice!! I wouldn't change it, just ask them to give you a new one, and keep it in your glove box with the tools to change it out.

Question on Cam Position Sensor

Is there a recall on the 2000 F350 models? If so, what symptoms require replacement? We just purchased this truck Jan 26th and haven't received any notices.

I got my recall notice about a week ago. No symptoms are necessary for the replacement. I had bought the truck in late august or september.

Mine cuts out in the rain when the intermittent wipers are set. Almost like clockwork with the wipers. Really lame since I have a new black CPS in there now with less than 5k on it. Because of the current wiper caused issues I will be having the recall done. Not cool to have the engine trying to die while towing a trailer with my family in the truck in the rain.

I have a 97 7.3 and just took it in for the recall. The dealer had it done in about a half hour and that was without an appointment.
