Alex was great and focused. He quickly replaced my thermostat and showed me the one he swapped and then proceeded to explain to me how it kept regiltated my engine temperature. After the inspection, he recommended I get my brake pads and front tires replaced - something I was already aware of which further solidified my trust in his skilla and competency. I would definitely recommend "My Mechanic" to get any and all your mechanically needs fixed.

Zachary

Zach showed up 5 minutes early, called me when he was outside, and came prepared with all parts. He was professional, friendly, and skilled. He completed his work in a timely manner and reported his findings to me. He took excellent pictures of all work and sent me a detailed report via e-mail. All of this on a Saturday, for less than half what the local shop quoted me, and I got to sit in my sweatclothes sipping coffee, catching up with my Girlfriend rather than sitting in a waiting room. I would strongly recommend him and yourmechanic.com. Thanks Zach!

Anthony arrived at the appointed time, part in hand. After completing a comprehensive electronic diagnostics and a physical inspection of my 2006 Explorer, he changed the part. He's a fine technician and, in my opinion, a fine man. I would be pleased to trust my car to him any time it needs work.

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.
