Noe

Noe was very professional and arrived in a timely manner. He checked that my repair was required before actually doing the work, and when it turned out it wasn't, he showed me exactly why it wasn't required. To be specific, he showed me the depth of my current brake pads vs the depth of the new brake pads, which saved me a lot of money. He was upfront and honest, and I really appreciated his demeanor.

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.
