About Camshaft Sensors

The Vauxhall 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 Vauxhall camshaft sensor will guarantee complete compatibility with the make and model of your vehicle.

Vauxhall trivia

  • Not only did Vauxhall produce the first sports car in the world, but it was also the first company to produce a car that could go 100mph!
  • Vauxhall has been manufacturing cars continuously in Britain since 1903, making it the oldest car brand to survive in the UK.
  • Vauxhall's first-ever car had a whopping five-horsepower and didn't have a steering wheel! Instead, it used a tiller for guiding direction, along with two forward gears. Who even needs a reverse gear?
  • It's the Corsa that is, by far, the most popular make produced by Vauxhall. Even as late as 2019, there were twice as many Corsa sales as there were of any other type of car.
  • The Vauxhall flagship vehicle is the Vauxhall Insignia. The family car has been in production since 2008 and was designed to replace the Vectra and the Signum. In the US, the Insignia is known by the rather grandiose name ‘Buick Regal’.
