First time jitters (risk vs. reward) with YourMechanic. Well worth it after the experience working with Jason. Solely because of the overall pleasant and professional experience with him would I try YourMechanic again. He did a thorough test and review of the auto shop that had diagnosed a fault and cut down my cost by negating one of the things the shop had recommended to do. He provided relevant information about the repair and the underlying system, which put me at ease about his knowledge. He is really diligent and follows up as promised. Thank you Jason - as you can imagine I hope not to see you soon, but in case I need to then you will be my first choice :)

Called a few hours before appointment to confirm, showed up on time. Very professional. My car is a pain in the *** to work on and it took him a little longer than expected, but no complaints from him or new charges. Highly recommended!

Joseph did a great job! He went slightly longer than needed, but only because he did a general check of so many other things. I'd definitely have him work on my car again!

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.
