“Happy with the work carried out. The only negative is that the car was taken to Hertford. Meaning it emptied my tank! I wasn't aware when booking with you that it would be out of Stevenage. This wasn't very clear. If it had been in Stevenage it would have been a brilliant service.“

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a Camshaft Position Sensor do?

The camshaft position sensor measures the position of the camshaft inside the cylinder head. From this information the engine's computer (ECU) can derive which cylinder is firing. Together with the information of the crankshaft position sensor the ECU can adjust the fuel injection system and engine coil firing sequence accordingly; to achieve a continuously optimal combustion cycle.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Camshaft Position Sensor?

  • When the 'Check Engine' light on your dashboard is on.
  • When the engine won't start or cuts out during operation.
  • When the engine misfires.
  • When the engine runs rough (a rough idle for example).
  • When the car's fuel consumption is higher than usual.

When should you consider a Camshaft Position Sensor replacement?

As the sensor is situated inside the cylinder head it is prone to deterioration. It can be affected by oil or the significant temperature fluctuations inside the cylinder head. The sensor can, eventually, fail completely. It, in turn, can lead to the fuel injection malfunctioning, preventing a continuous flow of fuel to reach the engine. It can lead to the engine running rough as well as cutting out or not starting at all. It can also cause misfires as the engine coil is not able to function properly, leading to higher fuel consumption.

For optimal combustion cycles in the engine it is therefore important to service the camshaft position sensor as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer. Professional and timely maintenance is essential to prevent further damage to other parts of the engine. Should you experience problems with a camshaft position sensor, then it is advisable to have it inspected and, if necessary, have the sensor replaced.

What happens during a Camshaft Position Sensor replacement?

  • Mechanic will read the ECU for possible fault codes related to the sensor.
  • Mechanic will inspect the sensor and ancillaries.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the sensor.
  • Mechanic will check the system and will test drive the car to ensure proper operation of the engine, if necessary the mechanic will make adjustments.

How much does a Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement cost?

The cost of replacing a camshaft position sensor depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having the camshaft position sensor replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
