Brandon arrived early and was ready to look at my car. He quickly diagnosed the core problems and was able to make a quick fix within a few minutes. He also gave me a car a full look-over and was able to suggest some additional services/repairs I could do to my car to keep it running in good condition. He was friendly, transparent about the steps he was taking with me car and explained things to me that I normally don't get from a typical shop. A great first experience with YourMechanic.

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.
