Joshua

Originally, I was scheduled to work with another mechanic, who is no longer available with YourMechanic. I was told that Josh would be taking over the work on my Mercedes, but that I would have to wait a week for his next available appointment. My first experience with Josh was a very positive one. He is very professional, upbeat and friendly. He arrived early, explained the issue at hand very well and was very clear and concise about next steps. He found that my original mechanic only found part of the problem with my car, not the whole issue. So he comped the labor and parts from his visit and scheduled a follow up appointment with me to install the final part and complete the job. Thank you very much, Josh!

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.
