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.

Chris was STELLAR. I had made an appointment for 2 vehicles - and initially, it wasn't possible for a single mechanic to perform the service for both. However, when Chris showed up - he let me know that he'd be doing the service on both vehicles. Not sure if Chris or the team @ Your Mechanic had something to do with it- but THANKS! Chris was thorough, efficient and you could tell he was definitely an expert. All this - and a friendly, professional and timely guy as well. I'd hire Chris again - ANYTIME!

Prompt and courteous! Did the work as promised and also did an inspection of my ford fusion. Thanks goodness he did because the radiator cap was broken. Saved me the hassle of overheating the engine. Thanks Robert!

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.
