Could be your alternator going out. Thats how it started with my dads car.

Disturbing the odd things that our alternators cause when they're crapping out. Apparently they can also cause the cam shaft position sensor to read funny too. I didn't think about that in this case.

Actually edit that, I can't really see that. It never does anything funky while the car is running. Which is when the alternator would come into play. But I could be wrong, I'm soooo tired right know my brain is not functioning.

I thought it was the throw out bearing. But it turned out to be the bearing behind the tob and he just greased it. Only cost $30 and the squeak stopped so I was happy

I ordered my new engine today! Im now an owner of a brand new 4.6l 4v aluminator crate engine... I didn't know they quit making them last year so it took quite a bit of searching to find a company that still had the supercharged ready 1

Me to trust me I was tempted to cause the base 5.0 was actually cheaper that the 4.6... But I really don't know to much about doin a swap that major and I'm sure that would be a nightmare tryin to get everything to fit and work... But it would be worth it to try, just not by me lol

I've been looking into this swap for so long lol. There's companies that make complete swaps for it. K member, new front a arms, coil over setup, trans mount, and shortened aluminum drive shaft. I guess the only thing you have to make work is the ac and swapping over to the hydrolic power steering. Wiring isn't even that bad! Can be done for around 12k with everything. But i would also want to upgrade the rear end. And the brakes... Haha.
