Hey everyone- I am new to the site... just purchased 2002 Ranger Edge 2WD automatic with 118K miles. I have been going though questions in the forum and until I did, I had never heard of a camshaft synchronizer. Now I am worried I can't get the synchronizer replaced fast enough! Since I have never attempted replacement before, I expect to carry it to a shop to let them replace it. I plan to purchase the Motorcraft synchronizer from Rock Auto but do I can't seem to find a Cam Position Sensor that is a gunuine Motorcraft part. Is there another brand of the CPS that is reliable? Also how many hours of labor should a shop charge to replace the synchronizer and CPS? Thanks for any help!

Dealer charges $185 to change synchronizer with me supplying the part. Thinking about letting them do it only because if I don't do it right, I'll end up with a wrecker bill and then having to pay them to replace it anyway...
