Would the camshaft positioning sensor cause my car to shut off while driving ?
When turning a corner at low speeds the rpm's would go up and the engine shuts off . I
would have to put it in park n it would take a few tries but will eventually start .
The cam position sensor (in conjunction with the crank sensor) allows the PCM to determine which cylinder is on its compression stroke. If you are interested in reading a full article on it:..................................... http://www.airtexproducts.com/news-blog-camshaft-position-sensor-and-its-effect-on-injector-timing.aspx
By monitoring the camshaft sensor and comparing it with the crankshaft sensor, the PCM knows when each cylinder is approaching top dead center and where the valves are positioned. Ignition and fuel injector timing relies on this information. I don't see how cornering would affect it
I was just told last week when my girlfriend was on the highway she went to pass a car and it was like the car lost all power and started to spit n sputter at about 70 mph but it didn't shut off this time.
