Great Service

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Camshaft Sensor:

Piece of cake to install, the car instantly stopped hesitating on acceleration. With one simple bolt holding it in I pulled out the old camshaft position sensor and had the new one installed in under 10 minutes. The new one was an exact fit and slid into place perfectly without any trouble. I'm not used to buying carquest parts so having a great experience like this really makes a good impression. I'll be going forward from here confident in ordering more parts manufactured by carquest.

Best Uses

    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Camshaft Sensor:

    I put this in my 2001 mercury cougar and it worked great for about 2 months then the engine light came on and said it was bad. I changed it out with the old one (which wasn't bad like I originally thought it ended up the timing needed to be adjusted) and the engine light has since gone out and no more hesitation in the motor.

    • Q:

      Does the camshaft position sensor affect the idle of a car?
      Asked on 9/21/2012 by rich from bay shore ny

        A:

        Yes, a bad crank position sensor can worsen the way the engine idles, the pistons fire, or the acceleration behavior. If the engine is revved up with a bad or faulty sensor, it may cause misfiring, motor vibration or backfires. Accelerating might be hesitant, and abnormal shaking during engine idle might occur. In the worst case the car may not start. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

        A:

        The CMP sensor provides the camshaft position information, called the CMP signal, which is used by the Power train Control Module (PCM) for fuel synchronization. Double check your cambelt timing setup. If the timing between the crank and cam sensors is out, you can sometimes lose spark on the back two cylinders.

        A:

        Yes, if the camshaft sensor is bad it can cause a no start condition. With out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer.
