He seems professional. I paid for the lights to be addressed and they are all still on including a low engine oil light. He said he would return to check it out further after his next appointment but I did not hear back from him. I was told by BMW that the power steering fluid needs to be drained, flushed and refilled. He sucked it out with a hose twice and this will not ensure that the oil that was accidentally placed in there would be completely removed. I am no mechanic but I am going off of what BMW told me. I wanted to get a lot more work done. I want all the lights to be addressed and fixed so I started with the check engine lights to be looked at and not just reset. I want everything to be fixed. Thank you

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.
