Overall I'm satisfied with the service. I think the only issue I had was that Jason mentioned that he didnt have all the parts to do my oil change. He had mentioned that there was some schedule mix up and that he was not even supposed to be there.

Robert showed up as agreed friendly and clean professional look He immediately went to work on my vw passat and didn't even take a break until he was at least 89% completed he brought all the parts needed plus a thermostat for a small additional fee he also installed He was very positive and even though several distractions occurred while he was working he minded his own business and was very diligent while working He answer every question I asked no matter how trivial and made me feel confident in his ability to complete a very tedious job that was very involved and technical to say the least upon completion he advised me of and future repair needed and I'm and sure I will book him again the future Job well done sir! As far and ms the company is concerned they misquoted my estimate and when I pointed out their error they did make rhe correction I would recommend you go over the quote and make sure they and mandrel billing you properly Thabks for the good job robert

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.
