Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Camshaft Position Sensor all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

  • Damage to the camshaft position sensor is often caused by oil leaks; if this is the case, you may need another part of your car replaced or repaired.
  • When the camshaft position sensor is replaced, the alignment of the timing belt should be monitored so that no fluids leak onto the position sensor mounting area.
  • Some camshaft position sensors will need to have their software updated when they are installed.
  • Timing belts, mass air flow sensors, and crankshaft position sensors can all trigger the trouble code for the camshaft position sensor.

How it's done:

  • Scan test computer for trouble codes.
  • Pinpoint tests as per flow charts.
  • Remove and replace Crankshaft Position Sensor.
  • Clear trouble codes.
  • Check for proper operation and test drive car.

Our recommendation:

The camshaft position sensor isn’t checked in most regular services, but your vehicle has warning signs for when the sensor begins to fail. Because it sends information to the camshaft, when the sensor begins to fail your engine will begin to have trouble. Your engine may have a hard time turning on, staying on, idling, or running smoothly. Your Check Engine warning light should illuminate as well.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Camshaft Position Sensor?

  • Car stalls or does not start.
  • Car struggles to accelerate (does not maintain speed).
  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Car misfires.
  • Car stumbles or sputters on startup.
  • Car runs poorly or runs rough.

How important is this service?

The camshaft position sensor provides valuable information about the camshaft position to the computer management system. The computer system uses the information from the position sensor to determine when to inject more fuel. Without the sensor’s information, the computer won’t inject fuel properly, and your vehicle will stall or sputter.

Jason

Jason arrived early. After time, he discovered the reason for my squeaky wheel (a defective rotor from O'Reilly Auto Parts). I was happy with his persistence in diagnosing the problem, making sure to find the issue correctly without giving up. He even took time to explain some other things about my van. The only thing that I did not like was how long it took him to get the new rotors from the store (took about 45-60 mins).

I was thoroughly impressed with Anthony. He was early which was a plus! My check engine light came on & Anthony solved the issue. He explained that my vacuum hose was leaking and cleaned my ECM sensor. I recommend Anthony and this company for their professionalism.

Wow!!!!!!! I can't sing "YourMechanic" and Spencers praises enough! I was very skeptical at first using a mobile mechanic but relied on all the wonderful reviews. Am I ever grateful I did! From the initial setup of my appt ..to Spencer showing up to diagnose and then repair my vehicle (all same day) it all went perfectly smooth. He was extremely honest and informative. The company was involved every step of the way, customer service is superb and they demand transparency which I love! When all was done, I was emailed a detailed report even with photos and audio files of the repairs made along with future recommendations. Just amazing all around. I will never use anyone else!
