Shaun did an excellent job! I needed an 80k miles maintenance service and since the service was expensive, I wanted to just get an oil change and get his opinion on what services were needed within the long list of Mercedes recommended services. I handed him the keys and went back to my office. He finished the service within the allotted time and let me know what services I needed with a detailed report of my fluid levels, etc. All of this and the time needed from me - no more than a couple minutes of handing the key and taking it back after the service. Convenience at its best!

WOW!!! I loved the experience of having a mechanic come to my home. He arrived promptly, introduced himself and got right to work. He took his time to explain what he was doing, and answered all my questions. I was so surprised when he told me the repairs were still under warranty (my car is 7 years old/67,000 miles), Wow, now that is a honest mechanic!!!! :) I highly recommend "Your Mechanic".

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.
