It took quite a while to get the issue resolved and now I have 2 new issues. No water from my windshield washers. May be a water hose issue. Now my air conditioner will only blow air through the defroster vents. May be a vacuum hose not connected issue.

Very impressed with yourmechanic.com from getting a quote,booking appointment to the mechanic that serviced my car! Pete was very professional,courteous and knowledgeable and experienced. He arrived 10 minutes before scheduled time which was awesome. He fixed the regulator on my driver's side rear door in about 30 minutes.ar the end of the job, I ended up paying less than I was quoted for. I would highly recommend Pete and will use him again in the future

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.
