Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement Service

What is the Camshaft Position Sensor all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

  • Damage to the camshaft position sensor is often caused by oil leaks; if this is the case, you may need another part of your car replaced or repaired.
  • When the camshaft position sensor is replaced, the alignment of the timing belt should be monitored so that no fluids leak onto the position sensor mounting area.
  • Some camshaft position sensors will need to have their software updated when they are installed.
  • Timing belts, mass air flow sensors, and crankshaft position sensors can all trigger the trouble code for the camshaft position sensor.

How it's done:

  • Scan test computer for trouble codes.
  • Pinpoint tests as per flow charts.
  • Remove and replace Crankshaft Position Sensor.
  • Clear trouble codes.
  • Check for proper operation and test drive car.

Our recommendation:

The camshaft position sensor isn’t checked in most regular services, but your vehicle has warning signs for when the sensor begins to fail. Because it sends information to the camshaft, when the sensor begins to fail your engine will begin to have trouble. Your engine may have a hard time turning on, staying on, idling, or running smoothly. Your Check Engine warning light should illuminate as well.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Camshaft Position Sensor?

  • Car stalls or does not start.
  • Car struggles to accelerate (does not maintain speed).
  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Car misfires.
  • Car stumbles or sputters on startup.
  • Car runs poorly or runs rough.

How important is this service?

The camshaft position sensor provides valuable information about the camshaft position to the computer management system. The computer system uses the information from the position sensor to determine when to inject more fuel. Without the sensor’s information, the computer won’t inject fuel properly, and your vehicle will stall or sputter.

Mercedes-Benz E320 - Car starts and then dies - Chula Vista, California
At first when he showed up, he looks tired already considering it was a late appointment. He looked at the car, opens up the hood and check the transmission fluid. Then after checking the fluid, he made a recommendation to use the Blue Devil Sealer for the transmission. He said to pour it in the transmission and it should take care of the problem. I was surprised that it was that quick to diagnose the problem of the car without actually testing the car. Then he made some recommendations that if I need new transmission then I can go to The junkyard. It seemed to me that he is trying to prolong the conversation to make it to an hour and then he gets paid $99. I asked him when are you going to inspect the and test the car and when he noticed that I was getting frustrated already and I told him to do his job. And that’s when he actually inspected the car. After 30 mins. he called me and explained to me the problem of the car. He said that the Blue Devil Sealer is not going to work because the main problem is the actual transmission itself. Then he made his recommendation to either purchase another transmission from the junkyard or just sell the car and get a used one with low mileage in it. I was glad that he explained to me the real problem of the car after our not so pleasant discussion earlier. I would still recommend his service but you just have to be upfront with him.
