My child is outside of Atlanta and check engine light was read out at an Autozone, said it was the camshaft sensor , just drive home to Charleston SC and repair it tomorrow. Will that be ok?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It shouldn't damage anything running it like that , but the engine may start stalling while driving and you will have to switch into neutral , start the motor , and then back into drive, until it eventually it won't start at all. Could be 5 times, could be 5 months. If your not comfortable doing any of that I would get it replaced before the trip or get a rental car. I would think it should still be under warranty ?
