So I got the vp out, it wasnt that bad, and I didnt drop the key, so Im pretty happy right now, altho the thought of droppn all that cash for another one sux! Anyway when I was looking over stuff on the net and in the manual ect, it was suggested to change the sensor that is right behind the vp, and I cant remember where I saw that at or what it was called, its pretty much right behind the vp, can anyone tell me what its called?

I don't know about a 99 but my 02 has a camshaft positioning sensor behind ther that i wish i had replaced while i was in there. just did not know about it until i had replaced the IP. your 99 might not have one. could have a crank sensor in a differant location.

I dont know if it makes a difference or not, but because it is electrical and hard to get too I bought my sensor at the dodge dealer. There is a parts place online called rockauto.com that i use alot now and they have name brand stuff, i didnt start buying from them till after i fixed my truck, but they probabbly have sensors.

I changed my cam sensor with the VP but decided to go with chainstore part because prior CRANK sensors (both original unknown brand and Cummins sensor) had failed close together. I figured that I may as well buy cheap if they are going to fail anyway. You can get to the cam sensor without pulling the VP. I forgot what fitting to remove the cam sensor - perhaps a torx??? Someone post back type & size when you find out.
