Default Good camshaft brand or sensor.

What's up guy's? P0345 code came up, and found out it's my camshaft sensor. I've been calling everywhere, getting different brands. What's a good quality brand out there that you guy's would buy?

good question bro. i am having issues with both my cam and crank shaft sensors as we speak and would prefer to choose carefully. unfortunately, it seems no one is interested in answering this very crucial question.... sad to say.

This is one of those things, that I'm trying to be very cautious on. I've heard only buy the Nissan brand. I just don't wanna spend $100 on one sensor.

I just had this problem today and once before but the before was Bank 1 and today was Bank 2 and they say to change out both when 1 of them go out so I say change out both but anyways. I had went to Autozone for my bank 1 about 1 1/2 year ago with a lifetime warranty and had no problems yet so I went today to get the Bank 2 and installed it and works like normal also with a lifetime warranty. So I say there's no problems with the Autozone CamShaft sensors for Bank 1 and 2. Just saying guys. I'm happy with them. They're working for me so I don't care what anybody says about don't get them and or there cheap parts or whatever. My bank 1 has been working for over a year and a half now so I'm happy with them coming from Autozone

That's what I needed to know brah. You stated that you had your sensors over a year now that's definitely good news to my ears. So replace both of them? Which brand did you go with? For example,like duralast or something?

Just about every part in the Maxima world you can get aftermarket. Its comes down to a matter of preference, budgets and in some cases you need it ASAP.

I personally prefer OEM especially for electronics. But that's just me. Many times I find good deals and the OEM price is not to far from Aftermarket.

But nothing wrong with using Autozone or Advanced Auto parts. They will work fine.

hi people
good to get a better insight into the murky world of parts sales. its very crucial that i have to be careful since i live a gadzillion miles away- in lagos, nigeria to be precise!! i cant afford to keep experimenting with the sometimes dodgy parts on sale here. truth be told you can get oem (straight from the
nissan...err stealership, etc) but you will have to part with an arm and a leg, too. so, my motto is- " measure twice, and cut once" becuz as we know in terms of electronics the max is a fairly touchy, demanding old lady- fine one at that.
thanks again for sharing your 6th gen max experiences.

I understand your issues fella .

I live close to a stealership & they keep steal us .

I have some Standard sensors wich aren t metal ones & I keep the SES light on , I don t care much I know why .

I understand that shipping will cost an arm & a leg if not more .

One thing I can tell you is that if you make business with Courtesy Nissan Parts or RockAuto , they wont screw you .

Default Re: Good camshaft brand or sensor.

based on my research i concluded Hitachi makes stuff for car manufacturers aside their own brand name stuff. Hitachi does make a camshaft sensor( straight one located close to the firewall) and the crankshaft sensor, both with the metallic head (no pun intended). If i could find the cam sensor nearer to the radiator by them also then i would gladly buy all three because am trying to avoid mixing and matching. As a last resort i would have to plump for OEM gear just to be on the safe side and leave no room for errors ( i mean just in case the after market ones are not up to scratch)
just my 2 cents, but to each his own.

The camshaft sensors are really easy to find. You can't miss em they have green clips, and there's a bulletin by Nissan saying that replace only if it calls too be replaced. If you feel that you should replace all at once, go for it.

Default Re: Good camshaft brand or sensor.

i do need some clarification about the right sensors for a 2004 sl 5 speed as there are so many confusing variations and part numbers. This much i know: OEM part numbers are-Camshaft/23731-6J90B; Camshaft/23731-AL61A;Crankshaft/23731-6J90C & 23731-AL60D.
Hitachi part numbers are-Crankshaft Position Sensor/CPS0002(OEM No.23731-6J90C);CPS0004(OEM No. 23731-AL60D).
However, I stand corrected on the above info as this would benefit all and sundry in the same situation.
Thanks.

Hitachi part numbers are-Crankshaft Position Sensor/CPS0002(OEM No.23731-6J90C);CPS0004(OEM No. 23731-AL60D).
However, I stand corrected on the above info as this would benefit all and sundry in the same situation.
Thanks.
It looks weird as for the Hitachi #s .

To be absolutely certain, it's good to work with your VIN. That said, the numbers for the camshaft sensors are presumably correct; while those for the crankshaft are not. At any rate, there is only one crankshaft sensor and not two.
PS. The crankshaft sensor numbers you posted are for Nissan models in Europe and Japan.

Yes, I do know that there is just the sole crankshaft sensor, and the pair of camshaft sensors, however, I was referencing the info I came across during my research on the websites of the various vendors. I have been able to input my VIN on some sites, while others make no provision for that. So, I guess I would have to rely on info from sites that have used my VIN in the search process. Be mindful that the reason for the different numbers is due to the fact that parts are (obviously) matched to year/specs. For example, on the sites of nissanpartszone.com and nissanusaparts.com searched with my VIN, it came up with Crankshaft Sensor number 23731-8YOOA.
