Crankshaft-Camshaft Position Sensors produce a signal that tells the Fuel Injection Computer or the Ignition Control Module the exact position of the pistons as they come up or go down in the compression cycle.

The most important sensors of any engine, Crankshaft Camshaft Sensors are integral to the functionality of the distributor and ignition timing.

So, the camshaft position sensor gathers information about the vehicle’s camshaft speed and sends it to the vehicle’s engine control module (ECM). The (ECM) uses this data to determine the timing of the ignition, as well as the timing of the fuel injection that the engine requires. Finally, without this information, the engine would not be able to function properly.

Over time, the camshaft position sensor can fail, or become worn down, due to accidents or normal wear and tear. There are a few warning signs to watch out for before your camshaft position sensor completely fails and shuts down.
