Want to learn more about Camshaft Position Sensor replacements?

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

What does a camshaft position sensor do?

The camshaft position sensor works in tandem with the crankshaft position sensor to send a signal to the engine management control unit (ECU) so it knows when the number 1 cylinder is at top dead centre (TDC).

How does a camshaft position sensor work and what are the components?

The camshaft position sensor works on what is known as the Hall principal. There is a gear on the camshaft which, when it rotates past the sensor, it changes the voltage output being sent back to the ECU.

A camshaft sensor is a single component, with a feed and return wire.

How do you know there is something wrong with your camshaft position sensor?

Faults with a camshaft position sensor can cause some, or even all, of the following symptoms

  • Difficulty in starting the engine or even a complete non start
  • Illuminate engine management light (EML) and associated fault codes
  • Engine going into “limp home” mode

When should you consider replacing the camshaft position sensor?

The basic fact is that if your camshaft position sensor has failed, it needs to be replaced before you can drive the vehicle again.

However, as there are many other issues that can cause the same symptom, it is better to have a diagnostic done prior to spending money replacing it.

How common is a camshaft position sensor replacement?

It is not a regular failure point as it has no mechanical component, but they do fail internally on occasion due to the contraction and expansion with the heat of the engine.

How can I extend the life of my camshaft position sensor?

There is nothing you can do to extend the life of a camshaft sensor.

What happens during a camshaft position sensor replacement?

Depending on the manufacturer, a number of different processes will need to be done in order to access the camshaft position sensor, however the mechanic will need to do some of the following basic steps

  • The mechanic will assess the situation by reading the diagnostic codes and checking live data
  • Once confirmed that the camshaft position sensor is faulty, they will continue on to replacing it.
  • Once replaced, the mechanic will start the engine and recheck the error codes

How much does a camshaft position sensor replacement cost?
