Camshaft Sensor Kit
The Camshaft Sensor Kit comprises the camshaft position sensor and its associated parts. The camshaft position sensor is an electronic device that is used to determine the coil firing sequence and set the injector synchronization in direct injection systems. The sensor helps to determine which cylinder is firing at a particular time to help the engine control unit (ECU) determine which coil needs to be fired next. The camshaft position sensor has a cylindrical component that is suspended in the engine head.
As the camshaft turns, the sensor senses which cylinder is currently firing with the help of a slotted wheel. Each slot of the wheel corresponds to a particular camshaft position which generates a set of pulses for that camshaft position. The ECU uses this information to determine the fuel-injection and spark timings. The information generated by the crankshaft position sensor is used along with that from camshaft sensor for the ECU to determine the status of the running engine.
If the camshaft sensor fails, the ECU will be unable to determine the correct ignition and injection timings. This will cause your engine to misfire or fail to turn when started. Other symptoms include a rough idle and stalling while accelerating. When the camshaft sensor fails, the "Check Engine Light" will light up on your dashboard. You should replace a faulty sensor at the earliest to avoid subjecting your engine to further damage. At Buy Auto Parts we stock a wide variety of camshaft sensor kits for every car make and model.
