Noe

Noe is both knowledgeable and amiable - a rare combination with most mechanics in my experience. I needed new brake pads on both front and rear, as well as rotors. Noe arrived on time and kindly explained I needed new calibers in the front as well. Since he needed more parts than what he prepared for, we ended up rescheduling my appointment for later in the afternoon when the additional parts were ready. Noe arrived even earlier than expected a few hours later and did a fantastic job! I loved working with him. He explained every part of the process and even gave me recommendations for some work I'm looking to do in the near future. This was my first time using Your Mechanic. I got great service, and great value for the money I spent. I will absolutely schedule service with this company in the future, and you bet I will always request Noe if he's available.

Danny was on time, began fixing my car right away. Turned out the noise I was hearing, was a separate problem he came to fix. I had the wrong part. He diagnosed it to be something else and gave me the option to have it install as a maintenance up keep. In conclusion he gave me recommendations, full detail of my car's health, voice notes, and pictures. Professional and knowledgeable I would recommend.

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.
