A camshaft is a shaft in your engine with one or more egg-shaped cams attached to it. As the camshaft spins, these cams or lobes open and close the intake and exhaust valves syncing with the motion of the piston. Because of the camshaft's link to the timing belt or chain, and the crankshaft, replacement or repair is usually not simple. Bring your vehicle to Smith Automotive in Pleasant Hill to get your camshaft repaired. Our technicians are well trained and knowledgeable with camshaft replacement and repair.
