Camshaft Position Sensor, BMW - E60 M5, E63 M6
Sends camshaft position to the computer. Genuine replacement for BMW part #13627834490.
This part is listed by BMW as BMW part number 13627834490 (13 62 7 834 490) and is described as a Camshaft Position Sensor used in E60 M5 and E63 M6 models. There are four (4) of these sensors on the S85 V10 (sold per sensor).
The engine computer takes the camshaft position from this sensor to assist in setting timing and even when starting the engine. A bad cam position sensor will lead to hard starting and reduced power as the engine computer reverts to 'safe mode' maps. There will also be a fault code and check engine light for camshaft reference sensor.
This is a Genuine BMW cam sensor with a two year warranty. Buying a Genuine part will usually be more expensive than an OEM or aftermarket brand but you are assured that it meets BMW's designs for fitment, performance, and longevity. It will also be the very latest design, incorporating any updates or revisions that an aftermarket brand typically will ignore.
