Does camshaft position sensor affect oil pressure?

If the oil level is very low, to the point where the engine overheats however, yes. Excessive heat can cause a camshaft position sensor to fail. More likely in a “low oil level” situation is for the camshaft, lifters, or camshaft variable timing actuator to fail due to inadequate oil pressure and lubrication.

How much does it cost to replace a camshaft sensor?

The average cost for camshaft position sensor replacement is between $176 and $227. Labor costs are estimated between $72 and $90 while parts are priced between $105 and $136. This range does not include taxes and fees, and does not factor in your specific vehicle or unique location. Related repairs may also be needed.
