A camshaft sensor is an integral part of the modern automobile. It is one of the devices that helps the engine run smoothly. The camshaft sensor is located under the hood, beside the engine, however, it isn’t always easy to find it. This is because the exact position of the camshaft sensor depends on the car brand. That said, whichever the car, you’ll find the camshaft sensor in either one of three locations: beside the engine block, behind the cylinder head, or in the car’s lifter valley.
A properly working torque converter is something your car’s transmission needs to function. If there is a problem causing it to malfunction then there are some symptoms that your car will exhibit. Here, you will get a brief idea of what a torque converter is and some of the most common ways to tell if yours is going bad. Keep in mind that other problems with your vehicle might show these same signs, so it’s best to check for more than one of these symptoms to confirm that the cause lies with your torque converter.
Modern automobile engineering has made the crankshaft position sensor an important part of the car’s engine. This small device is instrumental in monitoring the engine’s multiple components via the car’s computerized engine management system. The sensor tracks the speed of crankshaft rotation, monitors the engine valves in relation to the pistons, and observes overall engine function.
The crankshaft position sensor is usually placed on the crankshaft near the main pulley. It passes on information, and as with any other component of the engine, when things begin going south, it needs immediate attention. Ignoring the symptoms of a bad crankshaft position sensor will result in rapid wear and tear of the various parts of the engine and will quickly lead to engine wear-out. Fortunately, warning signs of a bad crankshaft position sensor are easy for the driver to detect. Read through the following points and keep an eye out for any one of these warning signs.
Few things will stop you in your tracks quite like seeing your brake warning light come on. When your car’s brake warning light comes on, it tells you something is wrong with the braking system; it can’t be put off or ignored until later—the price for doing so could very expensive and very dangerous.
All passenger vehicles sold in the U.S. starting with the 2012 model year come equipped with electronic stability control, which along with traction control significantly improves road-holding capabilities regardless of the drive wheels. Even so, we have found there are distinct differences in the driving, and traction, characteristics among drive types.
If you’re looking for maximum grip, we've found that all- and four-wheel-drive systems provide superior traction in some slippery conditions.
Here’s how the different systems work:
Automatic overdrive systems are a form of transmission system offering significant performance enhancements and can also increase the efficiency of your car. When people hear the term 'overdrive' they may think it's all about speed, but that's not the focus of the feature. Overdrive can help a car to go faster, but it's really focused on allowing the engine to run at a lower RPM while maintaining the vehicle's current cruising speed.
A look at the three main signs that you need to fix or change your oil pump: low oil pressure, high engine temperature, and noise.
While most drivers may never need to change their oil pump, it is important to know the symptoms in case you are experiencing problems with your vehicle. Your oil pump is an integral part of your vehicle's engine performance, and if it fails it could cause serious damage to your car. An engine oil pump sucks oil out of your oil pan and pumps it through your oil filter onto the bearings.
Spark plugs are an integral part of your vehicle’s motor as they provide the much needed spark that ignites the air and fuel mixture within the cylinders. This continuous ignition is what keeps your car moving on the road.
If spark plugs are not checked with regular services, cleaned or changed when necessary, they can cause problems to occur with the vehicle’s engine. Below are six signs for when to change your spark plugs:
Learn how a starter motor works. This guide to how a vehicle starting system works will get your car starter motor turning over again.
To make an engine start it must be turned at some speed, so that it sucks fuel and air into the cylinders, and compresses it. The powerful electric starter motor does the turning. Its shaft carries a small pinion (gear wheel) which engages with a large gear ring around the rim of the engine flywheel.
Your car's water pump is an important part of your vehicle. It is the part that continually pumps coolant to your vehicle's engine so that it doesn't overheat. A leak or a faulty bearing can cause serious damage to your car's engine. Puddles of coolant underneath your vehicle or high temperature readings may be signs that your water pump needs replacing.
