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.

This is the first time I have used YourMechanic. The only complaint I have is that he was about an hour late. It took him longer than he expected - not 20 min. but about an hour. In this case that does not really matter, except that I would not have stayed with him at my car if I had known it would take about an hour rather than 20 minutes - I would have gone back to my office and let him call me when done. He seemed very knowledgeable and told me about the brake pads and what was and was not needed. I would request Kyle again.

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.
