Ken showed up bright and early for my inspection appointment at my house. He was very nice and professional and went through a 150 point inspection check list very thoroughly. Overall, he thought my new used car was in pretty good shape and gave it a clean bill of health. If I have any other work I need done I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Ken again.

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.
