Great guy! Very Knowledgeable!
2003 CHEVROLET MALIBU - I HAVE A VEHICLE THAT HAS NOT BEEN USED IN A YEAR... IT WILL NOT START...IT DID RUN BEFORE...WE JUST NEVER USED THE VEHICLE. I JUST CHANGED THE BATTERY.. THE MOTOR DOES TURN OVER...BUT DOES NOT START. I'M SURE THE SPARK PLUGS NEED TO BE REPLACED AND OIL CHANGED. SO..MAYBE SOME DIAGNOSTICS ARE IN ORDER TO SEE IF SOMETHING ELSE IS NEEDED. WHAT WOULD BE THE CHARGE FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS...??? THANKS

Jamahl was punctual, courteous, and saved me a LOT of money! The shop I normally go to mis-diagnosed my car problems and was going to charge me $800.00 for an intake manifold gasket replacement. Jamahl asked me plenty of questions and recommended changing the water pump. He was right, and my bill was $162.00 (before buying the $20.00 water pump) !!! I was so relieved and will call on him the next time I have problems!

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.
