How does a camshaft sensor work?


The camshaft controls the intake and exhaust valves in the combustion chamber, thus enabling efficient and environmentally friendly combustion of the fuel. It is important that opening and closing take place at precisely defined times. Therefore, a camshaft sensor measures the position of the camshaft and passes this on to the engine control unit, when the position of the camshaft corresponds to the uppermost point of the first cylinder. To do this, the camshaft sensor scans a gear on the camshaft where either a tooth is missing at a specific location or there is only exactly one tooth. Since the camshaft requires exactly one revolution during the combustion process, the camshaft sensor can detect when the shaft has completed one full revolution based on the particular location. This enables the camshaft sensor to transmit the exact time for opening and closing the valves. Because of its function, it is also known as the camshaft position sensor. At the bottom of the page, we show why a camshaft sensor can go defective and what symptoms then occur. In addition, we once again provide useful tips on how to buy the right camshaft sensor.

How can a camshaft sensor become defective and what are the symptoms?

The camshaft sensor is attached to the cylinder head. Defects in the cylinder head or cylinder head gasket can lead to faults in the camshaft position sensor, for example if contact difficulties arise due to water or corrosion. Likewise, the teeth on the gear can wear out, which means that a correct measurement can no longer be made. Sometimes it is just damaged cables or torn fastening lugs that lead to error messages.

Indications of a defective camshaft sensor may include the following:

  • Loss of engine power
  • Failure to ignite
  • Fuel consumption increases
  • Difficulty starting engine
  • Engine check engine light comes on
  • Engine activates emergency program

Since the symptoms can also occur in the case of other defective components on the engine, the fault memory should be read out first. It is also advisable to check the cables and connectors. This can confirm that it is really the camshaft sensor that is defective. A repair is not intended for this component. In the event of a defect, it will be replaced completely.

What to consider when buying a camshaft sensor?

Since an intact camshaft sensor is part of the main inspection, attention should be paid to quality if you want to buy a camshaft sensor. Reputable brand manufacturers use high-quality materials and always adapt their camshaft sensors to the requirements of the vehicle manufacturers. Thus, high accuracy of fit and a long service life is guaranteed. Among the leading brand manufacturers in the field of camshaft position sensors include:

Camshaft position sensors differ for each vehicle, among other things, in their shape, in the number of connections and in the length of the cable. Therefore, it is advisable to select his vehicle in advance to get only suitable articles displayed. Before buying are then still the specified restrictions to consider.
