By the discription you give this sounds like it may be a starter motor problem.

After diagnostics on my 2003 bmw 318 coupe,camshaft sensor error showed up to be the car struggles to start and keeps cutting out whilst driving..will replacing the sensor solve this problem?

Hi there,

You are correct...

Your vehicle's ECU relies on data received from the Camshaft sensor, to determine correct engine timing etc etc. It's also important to note that often camshaft sensor errors are closely related to crankshaft sensor problems also.

Recommend you disconnect the the Camshaft Sensor plug and do a test accross the terminals. If the measurements are not to factory specification, replace the sensor then clear the code. If the engine still cuts out, continue to query the diagnostics until problem is solved.

Temp gauge 318 is BMW

Hi, this sounds like the thermostat may not be performing as it should, it may be worth removing it and checking to make sure that it is working correctly.
