I got a diagnosis from Jay on my BMW's Service Engine Soon light and he traced the problem to the Secondary Air Injection Valve. Jay explained to me and I learned the functionalities of the Secondary Air Injection System. He then replaced the offending part when it became available in a few days. I was also pleased that I received credit for the cost of diagnosis toward the cost of replacing the valve (parts and labor). YourMechanic is the way to go!

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.
