Dave arrived on-time. In replacing the front brake pads, he was highly efficient (fast) in completing the job. He shown me the brake pad senor indicating there is only 1, not a pair of them. That fact saved me a few dollars on the bills.

A+ quality work, professionalism and friendliness. Enrique performed an initial inspection on my vehicle due to the temperature gauge light coming on. He arrived early and upon completion of the inspection provided me with very detailed information regarding the issue reported. I scheduled an appointment to perform the recommended work and let me just say Enrique is a jewel. Again, he arrived early he was friendly and courteous and described everything to me in detail. As soon as he completed the job, he explained what he did, why he did not have to perform certain other recommended repairs and the information was provided in such a way, that even me as a woman who knows nothing about cars could understand. I will definitely use Enrique in the future :-)

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.
