Those are equivalent part numbers. 23731-9J90D is a supersession for all of the following numbers, 23731-5M016, 23731-5M010, 23731-6J900, 23731-6J906, 23731-5M015, 23731-6J905, 23731-6J90B.

It Stumbled on the highway, kicking off my cruise control, a couple of bucks on shifting. I thought it was going to throw me into a limp mode.
Swapped out the part with the Hitachi (CPS0008).
Easy swap, actually, though that damn connector gave me heck for about 30 minutes.
Great to see you on here again!disallow wrote: ↑Fri Sep 08, 2023 11:50 amJust did this repair on my 2005 Pathfinder with 400k kms on it. This is the first time I've replaced them. I ended up buying the Hitachi sensors through Rockauto, for about $100 for both.
The Hitachi sensors matched up exactly to the sensors I pulled out of my engine. So this confirms they are OEM parts. However, I am fairly certain that the sensors available through the dealer are not Hitachi. I am not sure who made them. But they are built much more heavy duty, similar to the Crankshaft Position Sensor I replaced about 2-3 years ago. They have a metal body on the sensor, instead of plastic. Anyways, ended up doing the repair in about 35 minutes. I used a rubber mat, and placed it on the engine so I could crawl around on top of the engine to get the best angle to remove and reinstall the sensors.
While I was at it, I busted the nipple off of the heater control valve. Ended up buying a new nipple and JB Welding it into place. Apparently you only have to look at that valve the wrong way and it breaks, as the plastic gets brittle over time.
Truck runs great now! Definitely more smooth while driving, and my Fuel Economy seems to also be a little better. I wonder how far off the cam timing needs to be before the ECM throughs a code for this?
Eric O shows that it can be whacked and hacked and not set off codes...his video comes in and around the time you posed this very question. I thought I'd add it here for the fun of it.
