Hi everyone... I'm new here and have my first question... re: my 1999 F250 superduty... I just replaced that pesky sensor that would kill my engine without warning... fun stuff!
Anyway, somewhere along the line I've heard that there exists a new version of this sensor that is far superior than the old ones. Where would I find such a thing, and what brand would it be? the one I just installed was an International part.

thanks in advance,

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS. In addition, for a list of vehicles assigned to your dealership,
visit This information will be available on December 04,
In some of the affected vehicles, the Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor may fail due to circuit
degradation. If the CMP Sensor should fail, the engine may stall. In the event of an engine stall, a
crash could result without warning. A new CMP Sensor with improved reliability is now available.
Dealers are to inspect the CMP Sensor to verify which design level sensor is installed in the affected
vehicles, and replace all prior level sensors. This service must be performed on affected vehicles at no
charge to the vehicle owner.
Parts to repair this condition are currently not available in sufficient quantities to service all of the
affected vehicles. Therefore, to ensure that an ample supply of parts is available, owners of affected
vehicles will be notified in separate phase mailings over several months. Phase mailing will begin the
week of December 17, 2007; prioritized by age of vehicle. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles
that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.
