Question: Camshaft Position Sensor Code

I had a code for the Camshaft Position Sensor. I tried resetting the code to see if it would just go away, but it would come on after a few days. I then replaced the Camshaft Position Sensor with a new one and cleared the codes. Now the code comes on instantly after starting the car. It also still runs the same as if I ran the car with the CPS disconnected. The only symptoms it has is that it hesitates sometimes at certain (high) speeds and can idle bad occasionally.

If you are sure the CPS is good and installed correctly, it's probably an issue with the wiring. Check for power and ground at the sensor, and continuity on the signal wire back to the engine computer.

A problem with the mechanical timing could also cause this code, but you would probably experience more significant driveability issues.

It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
