cam sensor

Picking up a 99 today, crew cab 4wd dually.
Is the cam sensor the part that had the recall? When it goes bad does the truck just die?
It uses the 10mm wrench to replace right?Or am I thinking of a different sensor? Whats it do when it fails? You guys carry an extra?
thx

The cam sensor is the part covered under the recall. Typically when it goes bad the truck either won't start or will start hard and then die. There are some other scenarios but since the cam sensor is a known problem it's been blamed for every issue these trucks have ever had. I do carry a spare and in fact I changed it out in a drive way a couple of weeks ago. I hadn't gotten around to getting the recall done and the sensor that was in the truck had been there for around 130k miles so I can't really complain.

The grey CPSs just outright suck. If you can, try to get your hands on a black IH CPS. Although these are hard to find, your #8 or #3 & #8 injectors won't fail a contribution test ever again & they go for about $60. Your only other choice is dfuser.com's IH blue CPS that claims is just as good as the black CPSs, but they run for about $135. Yes, your CPS is held in by (1) 10mm bolt & the wiring harness & it's located to the left side of the crank if you're looking @ the engine straight on from the front. I have 3 grey CPSs sitting on a shelf in my garage & all 3 gave me either a rough idle or #8 failed a contrib test repeatedly.
