Michael was very professional, called me one day before the appointment to make sure everything was on track. He showed up on time to the appointment with a professional appearance and tools. My car was inoperable upon his arrival and helped me push my 3800 lbs vehicle all the way into the apartment complex. He began inspecting the starter that needed replacement and discovered the previous mechanic had not seated the electrical wiring properly and thus the starter did not need be replaced. Most mechanics would of pulled a shady move and still went ahead and replaced it. Due to his findings he was able to save me money and time! I can't wait to work with him again.

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.
