Is a camshaft the same thing as a crankshaft?
crankshaft/camshaft. Is the crankshaft and camshaft the same thing? No, they are two very different things. The crankshaft is a mechanical part able to perform a conversion between reciprocating motion and rotational motion. The camshaft is a shaft to which a cam is fastened or of which a cam forms an integral part.
Some might refer to the camshaft as the brain or heart of the engine. It determines when, how long, and how far the valves open and close in relation to the pistons. For every two revolutions of the crankshaft the camshaft rotates one revolution. On most overhead valve engines there are two main types of camshafts, either a flat tappet camshaft or a roller camshaft.
Whether it’s your first time building an engine or you’re just looking for a performance upgrade, understanding camshaft specifications and design is a must. There are many numbers and terms used to describe the design of the camshaft and it’s important to know how these numbers will affect the performance of your engine.
What is a Camshaft Position Sensor?
Every electric engine has a camshaft position sensor. This sensor is a very important part of any vehicle because it helps ensure that the engine is running properly.
You may have trouble spotting the sensor when you look under the hood of your car. Usually, different car manufacturers will have their own unique spot near the engine for mounting the sensor. You may find it either in back of the cylinder head, in the lifter valley of the vehicle, or next to the engine block.
The purpose of a camshaft position sensor is to determine the position of the camshaft as it relates to the crankshaft. This data is then sent to the powertrain control module for use with fuel injector and/or ignition system control.
