Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement

What is a Camshaft Position Sensor?

The camshaft is a rotating object that contains pointed cams, which converts rotational motion to reciprocal motion. Camshafts are used in internal combustion engines to operate the intake and exhaust valves. The crank sensor can be used in combination with a similar camshaft position sensor to monitor the relationship between the pistons and valves in the engine, which is particularly important in engines with variable valve timing.
