The car doesn't run at all or runs with reduced power but this is usually associated with hot rod motors with a high lift camshaft that has "gone flat". I think you should ask a second mechanic about your car.

What is the function of the cam sensor on the 325 E36 bmw. can the car start with a faulty camshaft sensor. If so what will the car do


as the cam shaft position sensor works in combination with the crank shaft position sensor to tell the ECM where the piston is for the correct firing and timing
it would be unreasonable to consider that the engine would function with a faulty unit
basically if the cam shaft sensor is not operational then the engine will not start

Dohc focus overheating


You need to take off the timing belt (or chain) cover and see why the one camshaft is not turning. Maybe the belt for that cam broke or the cam has seized from a bad cam bearing. One camshaft should be for the intake valves, the other cam is for the exhaust valves.

The primary intent of this code is to detect slipped camshaft timing. Have you checked the camshaft timing? Your symptoms indicate you are a tooth off.

What is a cam crank sensor on 2004 Audi A4


The "cam crank" sensor is the "reader" for position and speed of the camshaft. This sensor send informations to Engine Control Unit about camshaft position and speed. If the sensor is faulty engine stops!

1991 vw golf gti- RPM stop working!


judging by the amount of km it has done i would say the rpm drive is faulty, this measures the amount of rotation in the camshaft and shows the "revolutions per minute". when this goes faulty it stops the read out on the dial, so you want to be looking for a device that measures the speed that the engine is turning, if you have, replace it and it should solve the problem
