Today was my first experience with Steven . Not only was he on time, he called to say he could arrive early if that worked for me! He spent a good 20 mins going over all my questions and educating me on some features in my car that I wasn't sure about. The work he performed exceeded my expectations and he was able to reset my computer! I'm thrilled to have found him and will definitely use I. The near future for any services needed. My fees for the work performed were over half what they would cost at Bmw, plus he removed a brake flush , said I didn't need when the dealer said I did!

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.
