You can compare this the 45 and 60 degree listening positions for surround sound but it means just what you said, 20 degrees for a narrow field and 40 for a wider field. Just remember to listen to what your ears are thinking and not others are telling you as your ears cannot be wrong to you.

45 Degrees:
The speakers are half the distance apart from each other as they are from the listening position; i.e-10 ft apart but 20 ft away.

60 Degrees:
The speakers are the same distance apart from each other as they are from the listening position; 10 ft apart but 10 ft away.

In surround sound, the higher the budget film, the higher field degree is optimum but never more than 60 degrees where you can easily go down to about 25 degrees.

For music most people like a narrower field unless you like groups like Pink Floyd where sometimes they will sound better in a wider field.

How do you know when your cam shaft sensors are bad?

That depends on the vehicle make , model an year ! The check engine light may come on an set a DTC for cam sensor , it may not start an run ! Cam sensors are usually used to tell the PCM that #1 cylinder is at top dead center on compression stroke for fuel injector control !
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor
The sensor detects magnetic flux changes between the four narrow and wide tooth slots on the reluctor wheel. The camshaft position (CMP) sensor provides a digital ON/OFF DC voltage of varying frequency per each camshaft revolution. The ECM will recognize the narrow and wide tooth patterns to identify camshaft position, or which cylinder is in compression and which is in exhaust. The information is then used to determine the correct time and sequence for fuel injection and ignition spark events.
What type problem are you having ?

How to Tie a Tie

The knot that will be taught is called a Pratt knot, aka the Shelby Knot. It is a simple, easy to do knot that looks good with almost any shirt and tie combination.

Step 1) Start with the tie inside out, and the wide end about a foot further down than the narrow end.

Step 2) Cross the wide end under the narrow end.

Step 3) Make a knot by bringing the wide end up and through the intersection of both ends.
See the picture below, it will make more sense.

Step 4) Experiment a little to tighten and raise the knot up to your collar.

Step 5) Once the knot is raised, cross the wide end back over the narrow end and bring it up through the collar, as shown.

Step 6) Now, take the wide end you just pulled through and bring it down through the loop, on top of the narrow end.

Step 7) Now, tighten and adjust accordingly, and you're done!

Cannot make oil cap turn to its original flush position

Don't make it more difficult than it is. Align the wide groove and narrow groove so the oil cap drops down a little bit. Push down and rotate into position. If the cap is up and out of position when the wide and narrow grooves are properly engaged with the oil cap, twist it further clockwise and push down. The manual explains this and a service rep. at your dealer will show you if you have more trouble.

Car turns over for a minute then dies

Long list of reasons. Fuel pump, bad coil, bad wires and plug, bad sensors, bad computer, short related to computer or any sensor, bad cat if clogged, bad crankshaft sensor, bad fuel pressure, etc, etc. Without narrowing it down some nobody will be able to tell you what it likely is. I recommend testing for spark and listen for the fuel pump hum for a few seconds when you turn the key to On position (not starting). That could narrow down a lot.
