Joshua

I wish I could give Joshua a better overall rating. The process and experience was exceptional and I would have recommended him to anyone. However the $700 I paid to repair the car didn't fix the problem. I understood and asked that Joshua think more and converse with others as to what it might be for further action. I only did not receive a followup call from him but he hasn't returned my calls all week. I'm in a business where we can do a project 98% complete, but the client always remembers the last 2%. The great experience I had and the overall professionalism I was receiving has been soured by the lack of follow-up.

Dave showed up at the exact time and finished the complicated job in 2.5 hours. The coolant had to be emptied in order to fix the issue. He topped it up and warned me that it might need a little bit more water after driving a few miles. The coolant warning did come up and I topped it up and no more issues since then. The buggy temperature level / thermostat/check engine is no longer a problem and I should be able to pass smog now.

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.
