5 stars are not enough to rate Chris. He arrived on time, extremely knowledgeable, patient with my curiosity, polite answering all my questions, thorough and detailed in his work and, overall, impressive. I've been to endless auto shops and mechanics which either resulted in temporary or partial satisfaction, or even disappointment. This was my experience today with Yourmechanic.com, and, in particular, with Chris Allshouse: I made an appointment for half dozen (or so) misc inspection services for $200 to find out any and all possible issues that needed to be fixed - which Chris pointed out and explained (to a person who knows basically nothing about cars) in layman's terms. He first mentioned I needed new battery and some random fuses/etc as well as tune-up in near future (after I put some more miles on car). Of course my first worry and response was how much more will this cost me, but was delightfully surprised and immediately told not to worry because when I (a customer) pays for "inspection" service appointment, that money is credited toward any future repairs/work done on my car - LOVED IT! I only had to pay few dollars more to get some work done, new battery with install, fuses and more!! As for the tune-up, Chris explained each little thing needed in regards to the tune-up rather than just telling me I need a "tune-up" which could mean I needed a bunch of things done (that are most likely not even necessary). To sum up my review, and end my rambling, I randomly stumbled upon Yourmechanic.com a long time ago. I think It took me two years, maybe even more, to finally drop my skepticism and make an appointment with Yourmechanic.com, yet, because of Chris Allshouse, it took less than a minute to feel confident and excited to set up follow up appointment (as well as request to service my other car). Chris was very personable and easy to talk to. He was very informative and took the time to explain everything to me. I highly recommend him. For the first time, the results were different and with only one afterthought…What took me so long to make this decision!

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.
