Modern vehicles incorporate a variety of sensors that are used by control systems to deliver maximum performance. The engine camshaft position sensor monitors the position of a camshaft and reports that data to the engine control computer. Input from the cam sensor and crank sensor are used by the engine control computer to pulse the fuel injectors at the right time and according to engine firing order, and also for spark timing on some engines. Though this sensor rarely causes any trouble, its malfunction can leave you stranded because of stalling or engine starting failure as the computer can't receive the vital data and determine correctly when to fire the injectors or adjust ignition timing.
If your engine camshaft position sensor has failed due to constant exposure to extreme heat, contamination from oil leaks or other engine fluids, physical wear, or any other reason, Hitachi will supply you with a reliable replacement part that is designed to meet or exceed OEM requirements. Hitachi uses the latest electronic-sensing and control technologies to make their sensors superior to the competition. Improvements in sensor accuracy lead directly to better control system performance. By restoring proper fuel injection control and ignition timing control, this sensor will ensure optimal operation of your vehicle.
