Hi All:

We have an 08 Subaru Impresa with the Camshaft Positioner sensor code coming up. One of the guys at work has tried to get it figured out because he has the same engine in his car but he can't figure this one out so we may need to take it to a mechanic but I am hoping to find someone trusted to do the work.

We live in the north Proctor area of Tacoma and would like to find someone in Tacoma to take it to.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

James

Hi James, i just got done tearing into my Subaru (mine is the 2.2l) Legacy. You have the 2.5l in your Impreza, correct? Is your 2.5l the DOHC or SOHC engine?

The 2.2l and 2.5l engines are based on the same platform. Id be willing to bet you just need a new camshaft position sensor. Another thought that came to mind is if your cam seal is leaking, you may be getting oil residue on/around the sensor, causing the code to signal.

Hi Jerrod:

Mine is the 2.5. It is a WRX automatic that is not driven hard.

Is there a way to tell if the camshaft seal is leaking? The sensor is not expensive and sits in a spot that is easy to get to. Someone told me that motor has two camshaft sensors?

Thanks:

James

Thanks for the responses. We live about 15 minutes from the place on Washington ave so may take it there.
