Camshaft position sensors help the engine to run smoothly. Their primary function is to determine the position of the camshaft in relation to the crankshaft. This information is then relayed back to the powertrain control module so that it can calculate the ignition and injection points. Just like other car components the CPS can become faulty because of general wear and tear, or because a relating component has failed. A faulty camshaft position sensor can cause the engine to suddenly lose power which is incredibly dangerous, so it’s important to resolve any issues as a matter of urgency.
