About Camshaft Sensors
The Land Rover camshaft sensor is a clever magnetic sensor which, along with the crankshaft sensor, works in conjunction with the car's ECU, playing a crucial part in enabling the engine to run on time and smoothly. The camshaft sensor measures the speed that the camshaft is rotating and sends this information to the ECU which uses it to determine and control the ignition and fuel injection timing of the engine.
The camshaft sensor is located underneath the bonnet, usually next to the engine or directly behind the cylinder head.
The camshaft sensor is commonly replaced due to damage received in an accident or general wear and tear. Extremes of heat and damage from oil leaking into the sensor are also factors that can lead to the sensor malfunctioning. If there is a problem with the camshaft sensor the Check Engine light will illuminate on the dashboard. If the engine is struggling with power, spluttering and stalling, having difficulty idling, or having issues with acceleration, it could be a broken camshaft sensor.
If the camshaft sensor is not working properly and is ignored this could lead to fatal ignition failure. It's a good idea to seek advice from your mechanic to establish the exact root of the problem. When this important part fails, replacing it with the Land Rover camshaft sensor will guarantee complete compatibility with the make and model of your vehicle.
Land Rover trivia

- When the Pope was visiting the UK in 1984, Land Rover designed him a customised Popemobile to use in the country.
- The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
- According to the film, Judge Dredd (1995), Land Rover will be the last ever car manufacturer in the world. The car company had a heavy presence in the film, and you can still see some film versions of the car driving around the UK.
- The Queen loves Land Rovers and is reported to have owned as many as 30 different models in her life. It was in a Land Rover Defender that her majesty terrified the then Crown Prince Abdullah with her wild driving skills.
