What Is A Cam Sensor Error?

We had someone come in and tell us they had been driving around with a Check Engine light on for some time. They went to a local auto parts store who checked the code and told them it was a cam sensor error. He was curious what we thought since his car was running just fine.

This sensor lets the car know if the spark plugs are firing at the exact right nanosecond. This is important for performance and if not fixes will degrade over time. Usually to the point that the car will go into “limp home mode” which is something you do not want, especially if you are two states away from home!

All check engine light errors should be looked at by a qualified mechanic. If yours is on, come in and let us see what’s going on with your vehicle and give you an estimate to get you back on the road safely. If you live in Essex, Burlington, South Burlington, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne and anywhere in the State of Vermont be sure to contact Handy‚Äôs Service Center for all your auto repair needs!
