Our comprehensive line of Camshaft Position Sensors has applications for both domestic and import applications. With hundreds of camshaft sensors in our line, we supply comprehensive coverage for all makes, including Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, and Volkswagen.
To ensure quality, we manufacture our NAPA® Echlin® camshaft position sensors at our IATF 16949-certified facility in Reynosa, Mexico. To make sure they perform and last, we put each unit through end-of-line timing, pulse width, and signal amplitude testing. That means you’ll get a sensor that protects against over-voltage, under-voltage, reverse-voltage, and short circuits, and that maintains accuracy during heavy-duty shock, vibration, and maximum temperature conditions.
To protect against failure, we manufacture camshaft sensors using premium components, including:
Plus, to ensure durability and longevity, we subject each camshaft sensor to extensive end-of-line testing.
Our camshaft position sensors undergo 48-to-64-hour vibration testing across three different planes to ensure performance under the harshest conditions. We also subject each sensor to extensive end-of-line timing, pulse width, and signal amplitude testing.
Typically located in the engine’s cylinder head, camshaft sensors determine which cylinder is firing in order to establish injector synchronization and coil firing sequence in DIS systems. The sensors can fail due to extreme temperature, contamination, and wear and tear.
Sealed metal casing prevents oil intrusion
Fluorocarbon rubber oil seal ensures secure fit
Rotated mounting ear matches latest OE-design
Sealed construction withstands extreme under-hood conditions
Integrated waterproof connector ensures lasting performance
Advanced circuitry provides immunity from EMI (such as stray electro-magnetic fields, power spikes, and static electricity) that meets ISO standards
Adding to its industry-leading product line of camshaft and crankshaft sensors, which includes more than 1,000 SKUs and 95 percent coverage, NAPA® Echlin® has unveiled its new line of Camshaft Sensor Kits. Each premium NAPA® Echlin® kits contains two camshaft sensors along with the needed high-quality connectors to replace the melted/damaged originals.

Today’s engines use VVT systems with multiple camshafts and sensors to precisely monitor performance. A typical DOHC engine will have 2-4 camshaft position sensors as well as a crankshaft position sensor.
If one cam sensor fails, it’s likely the others are nearing the end of their service life, too. We recommend replacing camshaft sensors together with high-quality NAPA® Echlin® sensors or camshaft sensor kits, for a complete job and to reduce comebacks.
