He provided in depth summary, media, details and recommendation via email. The media was useful. He provided photos for the fault.

Clarissa was wonderful! She is very friendly, knowledgeable and honest. If I could give her 10 stars I would. I usually work on my on car so I have an idea of how much work goes into repairs. I am the type of person who laughed at other mechanics and walked away when they tried to sell me a service I didn't need or for a ridiculous price. From the start she responded very quickly to my messages answering my questions and even added a last minute service the day before she was scheduled to come to my home. I had an old car being held together by rust and prayers. I had some parts and she immediately called to remove the cost from my bill. She showed up on time, listen to what I had to say and then looked over my car. She pointed out the issues and helped me weigh the pros and cons of how to handle the situation. I would highly suggest her to anyone who wants a mechanic they can trust!

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.
