Turned out good. Tien my mechanic came early, and got straight to the job. After checking the oil from the oil change he did, instead of lying and saying that it's good, he saw it was missing 1 more quart. So he called it in, and picked up the extra quart to finish the job. Did the 50 point inspection, told me the 2 extra fluid were low, and finished everything great. Had a good day after that. Thanks Tien

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.
