Tom provided excellent service. He inspected the car and wanted to make sure that the battery was good before going any further. He had a generator and a charger in his van which he used for about 30 minutes and tried to start the car a few times. The charger showed the voltage fluctuating between 15V and 13V which he said is not supposed to happen if the battery is good and can take charge. He suspected that the battery is sulfated and needs to be replaced. Since the battery is Interstate and less than a year old and still under warranty he advised getting it replaced first before looking at other things. My first experience with YourMechanic and with Tom has been very positive and I won't hesitate in recommending your services to my friends and colleagues when they have any auto issues.

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.
