Patrick

Patrick was very professional and pleasant to work with. Once he inspected the vehicle, he also pointed out another problem, but didn't push the sell. He ordered parts and returned the next day to fix my first problem and then also emailed me a quote on what it would cost to fix the additional one. His quote was lower than others, so I also booked him for that repair. The convenience of having a mechanic come to you has been excellent. Would recommend this site and especially Patrick to others. Thank you very much.

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.
