Default I need help please someone read and respond asap

Ok I have spent a TON of money on my 2003 3500 5.9 Cummins just in the last few months.

New Fuel Filter
New Tranny
2 New Injectors
Rear End Rebuilt
CamShaft Sensor
U joints

Here is the problem.

After start up in runs really bad. When it warms up it runs better. After I put it in drive or reverse it begins to miss and shake. I have taken it back to the tranny shop and they said tranny wise all is well.

My local go to diesel guy tells me that a sensor near the injectors topside of the motor on the driver's side may be bad. There are three right next to the valve cover.

Does anyone know what these sensors are called?
Is there a good place to order them?
Is it best to replace all of them?

Any info would be wonderful.

Thanks!!!

Not that I know of. What is that? My local shop isn't really all that great with these trucks and there isn't anywhere near me that is.

A balance test is done to evaluate how each injector/cylinder is performing. Throwing parts at it because a sensor "might be bad" can cost more in the long run than a proper diagnosis.
