Chet was great... like a trooper, he worked in the dark with a head-light and a smile! He took the time to show me what the problems were and possible problems down the road to look out for. I appreciate that he was professional and knowledgeable while working without wasting time. My cars runs great now and I am so happy to not be nervous jumping into with a 91 year old mother in the seat next to me. Thank you! Linda G.

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.
