Great experience. Went above and beyond to ensure that the problem was fixed and that I was happy with the result. Even checked in a few days later to make sure it was still functioning correctly.

Vehicle was diagnosed as defective ignition coil, which had been replaced late April. Kyle said this part under warranty & would be available by Monday, Memorial Day. We didn't hear from anyone, so we finally bought the part & replaced ourselves because we only have one car. It was a bit disappointing. We did try to reach YourMechanic several times before fixing the problem that was under warranty ourselves.

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.
