Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Camshaft Position Sensor all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

  • Damage to the camshaft position sensor is often caused by oil leaks; if this is the case, you may need another part of your car replaced or repaired.
  • When the camshaft position sensor is replaced, the alignment of the timing belt should be monitored so that no fluids leak onto the position sensor mounting area.
  • Some camshaft position sensors will need to have their software updated when they are installed.
  • Timing belts, mass air flow sensors, and crankshaft position sensors can all trigger the trouble code for the camshaft position sensor.

How it's done:

  • Scan test computer for trouble codes.
  • Pinpoint tests as per flow charts.
  • Remove and replace Crankshaft Position Sensor.
  • Clear trouble codes.
  • Check for proper operation and test drive car.

Our recommendation:

The camshaft position sensor isn’t checked in most regular services, but your vehicle has warning signs for when the sensor begins to fail. Because it sends information to the camshaft, when the sensor begins to fail your engine will begin to have trouble. Your engine may have a hard time turning on, staying on, idling, or running smoothly. Your Check Engine warning light should illuminate as well.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Camshaft Position Sensor?

  • Car stalls or does not start.
  • Car struggles to accelerate (does not maintain speed).
  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Car misfires.
  • Car stumbles or sputters on startup.
  • Car runs poorly or runs rough.

How important is this service?

The camshaft position sensor provides valuable information about the camshaft position to the computer management system. The computer system uses the information from the position sensor to determine when to inject more fuel. Without the sensor’s information, the computer won’t inject fuel properly, and your vehicle will stall or sputter.

This was my first time using "Your Mechanic". I found the website when shopping for new brake pads. My dealership wanted hundreds more. Local mechanics wanted me to waste a half day or better just to get a price quote. On a leap of faith I gave this seemingly to-good-to-be-true company a shot. I booked an appointment, surrendered my credit card info and hoped for the best. Immediately, my appointment was confirmed with time, date, original quote, Andy's information and everything else I needed. The next day, Andy called ahead on his way. When he arrived, he located my car in the lot, explained the process and answered all my questions. I handed over my key and walked back to my office fully expecting a call in a couple hours to tell me home much more work needed to be done and that my estimated cost would be twice as high. What happened was: Andy finished early, called me down, walked me through everything he had done. Only after I was fully informed and satisfied did he ask me to review the invoice and sign - for LESS than the original quote. Now, only by a few dollars, but still less! In addition to LOWERING the cost and finishing early, I was emailed a link to a VISUAL and VERBAL inspection report, a written quote I had asked for regarding another area on my car and his advice regarding that work. Now relieved and beginning to believe this service was legit I began to praise Andy and his company. I shared how many people were looking down from our offices wondering what was going on with my car. I explained I would be sharing this experience with all of them and writing his review online and sharing all over social media. Andy is polite, patient and professional. He put me at ease right away. His empathy and knowledge made me feel I had made the right decision from the very beginning. Your Mechanic is my first call going forward. Check out their services and reviews. This is the future of vehicle maintenance and repairs. Thank you, Andy - job exceptionally well done! Chuck from Kansas City, MO

Emmette was awesome. He was early to the appointment and performed the job in less time than required. I was very surprised. He did an inspection of my car and let me know of other things that has to be repaired. I was very pleased with his service and I will be requesting him again for the next service! Thanks Emmette!
