Don't put your bearing blocks in upside down. This one is from an XCell. The collar on the main shaft was rubbing on bare metal. I was bothered by a chirping noise for a long time. There is no excuse for this but several possible causes have been suggested.

You are never too old or experienced to screw something up.

At least you found it eventually and I'm assuming it did not cause a crash so all is good.

Well, it was pointed out that in the PCM days it probably would have been a crash. But 2.4 never gave a clue. I asked a lot of experts and nobody had any idea what that noise was.

Yeah metal to metal like that could have easily swamped a PCM receiver into lockout.
