The camshaft position sensor is a magnetic or hall effect sensor, this sensor reads information about the engine, camshafts and speed. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. The function of the camshaft position sensor is important for the vehicle to run at its best, and maintaining a high level of performance and fuel economy. The information given to the ECU or the Electronic Control Unit dictates when the air fuel mixture is ignited and when to give more or less fuel in correspondence with the camshaft position, its speed and subsequently the valves position and speed. This is a very simple sensor to replace and service, and yet it serves a huge role in your vehicles performance and overall health.
