Tom was very helpful and very knowledgable in VW and made sure that I understood what was going on with my Jetta. I had a lot of annoying questions, but he was pretty patient in hearing me out about my concerns and didn't judge me on the current conditions of my car despite it surviving my college years. He also gave me some advice on how to better care for my car in which I will definitely take! He will probably be my go-to VW guy since I have a second vehicle.

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.
