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.

Lucas was very communicative and thorough. He specifically sat down with me and showed me what was wrong with my car. I also really appreciated that he gave me options and left a lot of the decision-making up to my discretion. I never felt pressured or scared into fixing more than requested, which is different from the majority of mechanics I've encountered. HIGHLY recommend and will request him or at least refer to this site for further work on my vehicle. The work itself on my car had top quality parts/service! Big thanks!

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.
