cam sensor

I know this is an ongoing topic but I changed my sensor last weekend with a replacement from Autozone. The truck is stalling more now than it was before I changed it!!! It's also really hard to start now. It turns over several times before it will fire up. Should I replace it with a Ford replacement part instead of an Autozone part? It's really bad now I can hardly get backed out of the driveway without it dying. Thanks for all advice!!!

Change it out with the International part, I did mine about a year ago and it idles smoother and even picked up a little mpg (not much, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 mpg)

Just to update everyone, I replaced it with a ford sensor and no more problems as of yet!!! Have talked to a few people that have had the same problem from AutoZone sensors. Others have had success from O'rielly! The ford sensor was actually $.99 cheaper than AutoZone too!!!!

The International part # I have is 1807339C92, it is for the International Improved Blue CPS for 96.5-03 7.3l. I got mine from puredieselpower.com for 107 + s/h but I'm sure one of our sponser sites can get it too, and probably cheaper

Don't really know, but like I said it smoothed out at idle & slightly improved mpg on my truck
