What is a NOx Sensor?
Most Cummins engines have two NOx sensors, one on either side of the SCR, to measure NOx in the exhaust! The inlet/ upstream sensor monitors NOx levels before the SCR, so the ECU knows how much DEF to inject. The outlet/ downstream NOx sensor then checks the NOx levels post-SCR. The ECU uses this combined data to make sure the SCR is working and establish whether it needs more DEF. This helps the SCR reduce toxic nitrogen oxide particles in your exhaust!
Why Choose Roadwarrior NOx Sensors?
Many drivers hesitate before trying aftermarket Cummins NOx sensors. This can be because of their own experiences or unflattering stories they’ve heard from other OTR drivers.

What Are the Most Common Cummins NOx Sensor Problems?
Cummins NOx sensors are an extremely sensitive part that measures fluctuations in microscopic NOx particles in your exhaust stream. However, as with all delicate sensors, a small amount of damage or contamination can cause NOx sensors to malfunction. A benefit of a highly interconnected combustion and aftertreatment system is that the ECU can pick up data inconsistencies between parts and trigger a DTC. The downside is that soot contamination from other emissions-related parts is a leading cause of Cummins NOx sensor problems. If soot from the exhaust clogs up the nitrogen oxide sensor, it can also give inaccurate readings! This can then cause too much or too little DEF to be injected before the SCR.
Your 4326873, 4326874 or 4326872 Cummins NOx sensor is also highly susceptible to moisture contamination! The sensor can be exposed to moisture during installation or through your semitruck’s exhaust. The risk of contamination is one reason we recommend having your NOx sensor professionally installed, rather than installing it yourself. If you have any issues, this also makes it easier to prove that the part was faulty and didn’t become contaminated during installation.
