Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement Service & Cost

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.

First of all, the repair was to my knowledge was correctly done and the problem solved. This is most important. He was courteous and helped me see the condition of my brakes, which one could not do with a shop repair. When you get away from that, there were multiple small problems. Some of these were with YourMechanic rather than Rod. He arrived 20 minutes late, not counting the time going to the wrong address. He did not call first, as I requested, so I could call the gate. The YourMechanic software would not allow me to enter my address correctly; Customer Service couldn't do it either. They put a note on the ticket saying what the correct address was, but he hadn't seen it, so he went to the wrong address. The estimate provided by YourMechanic indicated that the repair would take 2 3/4 hours. I thought this must be a really complicated repair (and the estimate seemed very reasonable for that, which is one reason I accepted it). He was done in an hour. I pointed this out to him and he had no explanation. I did not think to ask if a new (as opposed to remanufactured) part was being installed, and so far I have not received a reply when inquiring of YourMechanic whether this was the case. I was surprised that he wrote up an estimate for a further repair that I told him I was not doing now (replacing brake pads and turning rotors). He says in a report voice recording that I "refused" this repair. That is not what I remember, so we had a communications problem. He says in his recording that the left pads were 70% worn, although I don't remember that figure. But they definitely had considerable wear. The reason I am not doing a full brake job now, as I explained to him, is that this is a 2005 car with 117,000 miles on it, that is driven 3,000 miles a year, if that, and rarely over 40 mph. What particularly irritated me was that the statement had five boxes that were to indicate the condition of various parts of the car. He checked all of them as "excellent". No one would ever say that the tires on this car were in excellent condition. They have 50,000 miles on them. What this means is that he just checked all the boxes that way to finish sooner and be off to his next job, and the excellent ratings are meaningless. Finally, if you use YourMechanic you should be prepared for lots of emails, some of them repetitive, unnecessary, and unwanted. For example, after scheduling the repair, I received several emails encouraging me to do so.
