I've used Your Mechanic a few times now. I only want Peter to work on my cars. He takes the time to properly diagnose the problem and actually shows me what the issue is. He explains what's going on and I really appreciate that. He's always on-time too! (actually, early.)

The ignition now works but only when the tilt wheel is in the very lowest down position between my legs. If the tilt wheel is at the normal position, car will not start because key will not turn all the way to ignite the starter. Needs to be looked at again for adjustment of this problem. Car should start in any steering wheel position.

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.
