Zachary is an excellent mechanic! He arrived a little early for our appointment. He carefully evaluated and diagnosed the problems with my GMC Envoy overheating - It needs a new serpentine belt and drive belt tensioner. We had two previous mechanics who could not figure this out, so we really appreciate Zachary. He answered all our questions completely and made sure we understood everything. We're looking forward to working with Zachary again, and highly recommend him to everyone!

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.
