Camshaft Sensor

Camshaft Position Sensor



A camshaft position sensor measures the rotational position of the camshaft and sends this information to the ECU.  The ECU then calculates when each spark plug should fire and also time of fuel injection so it shouldn`t come as a surprise when we say that the misfires are one of the common problems relating to faulty camshaft sensor.

Typically a camshaft sensor can be located either on engine block or behind the cylinder head.
