Camshaft Synchronizer

Aftermarket camshaft synchronizer by Spectra Premium

The Camshaft Synchronizer follows in the footsteps of the ignition distributor. Mounted on the camshaft and coupled with position sensors, it relays the point of engine rotation to the powertrain computer. Mostly used on Ford vehicles, they are a digital hybrid between the ignition distributor and the camshaft position sensors.

Spectra Premium Camshaft Synchronizers feature in-house proven technology that provides a stronger, more consistent signal and performance

Common Camshaft Synchronizer Failure Symptoms

  • Rough idles
  • Stalls
  • Drops in engine power

Common Causes of Failure

As a mechanically driven part, the synchronizer is obviously prone to failure. A dry, or worn out driving gear will halt it from working and may cause cascading engine issue. Always look at that check engine light.

Due to crankshaft or camshaft position sensor failure, an engine might cut, die while driving or refuse to start.

A faulty sensor may lead to catastrophic engine failure.
