Noe was so friendly and helpful when he came to replace the battery in my car. He didn't waste any time getting to the appointment earlier than needed which was convenient for me. Using YourMechanic for the first time was lovely and so much easier than getting towed to get something simplistic done. I love this service. Thank you Noe!

Richard did an excellent job on replacing my motor mounts. My neighbors were so impressed they starting coming over and asking for the phone number.

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.
