Patrick was great! He is extremely kind and knowledgeable. Going to auto shops can be so stressful and Patrick made it pain free lol. My girlfriend was having some noises from the front driver side tire Patrick noticed the lug nuts were extremely loose which was the problem. He helped fix a simple problem which could've turned into a dangerous situation. Thanks alot Patrick!

Rod was a very likable, up-front guy. Immediately diagnosed the problem and took steps to make sure it was fixed ASAP. The service was more expensive than if I had handled it myself, but it was more than worth the extra bucks to have someone else take care of it from start to finish. This was my first use of MY MECHANIC, but I would use them again with no reservations. Worth the money.

Augie was friendly, knowledgeable , showed up on time and finished everything in a timely manner. I gave 4 stars because he came for a brake pad and rotor replacement, but didn't have the correct tool, so he had to rechedule for another day which, was a bit frustrating and inconvenient. He did rechedule for another time that worked for me a few days later, but I do not normally drive to work(take metro) so driving in twice was slighly bothersome. Other than that, I would recommend him.

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.
