Jason was very knowledgeable and deliberate. He did an inspection to verify the complicated problem and the proceeded to acquire the OEM part required and credited me the inspection fee as he completed the repair. I would highly recommend Jason on all types of repairs and service.

Mr. Cobb was actually earlier than the stated appointment time, however, I was not surprised because he called and he sent me a text prior to his arrival. He was also able to complete the repair in what I considered to be very quickly. He was very honest with me about the need for repairs and when I could expect to absolutely have to have additional repairs made. I have already recommended friends. Thanks Mr. Cobb.

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.
