Josh is great. A previous mechanic had damaged my vehicle. Josh showed up early, figured out what needed to be done, explained everything along the way, and worked with YourMechanic to process the warranty claim. He completed the service. He was very thorough checking out the entire vehicle. He is one of the best mechanics I've worked with, period.

Very professional and polite. You can tell he knows vehicles from his extensive background. I hope Ben stays a mechanic for a long time because if I ever need help he will be the one I will be booking. He even arrived earlier and gave me a call which is what I wanted.5 stars!

All about Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement

The camshaft position sensor monitors the position of the camshaft and reports that data to the car’s onboard computer system. This computer system works with sensors and other devices to keep the engine running. With data from the camshaft position sensor (CPS), the fuel injectors know when to fire. When the sensor malfunctions, the computer does not know when to fire the injectors and may not fire them at all. The faulty readouts may also throw off spark timing, which will affect the car’s fuel economy. This sensor is used in conjunction with the crankshaft position sensor to control ignition timing. It is common for heat and oil leaks to cause this sensor to fail, due to where the sensor is located.
