I can't ask for anything more for the professional job that Jay had done on my car, replacing the front struts on my BMW. Very friendly from the start and without hesitation he answered all questions I have about the work to be done which boosted my confidence and resulted in an excellent job. Well done and thank you so much, Jay! Very glad I found YourMechanic to save me a fortune that dealer shop was charging me for the same work.

Enrique

I'm certain I couldn't have had a better first experience with Your Mechanic. Enrique came out to diagnose my vehicle's starting issue and because of his professionalism, knowledge and personality he earned my business. He proceeded to not only repair my problem, but also install a new set of rotors and pads on my wife's Range Rover Evoque, as well, all in the same day! After witnessing his hard work ethic, and perseverance he also earned my respect and trust. I would highly recommend Enrique to anyone considering Your Mechanic for repair services.

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.
