TYPES OF PHASE OR CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR
Generally, there are four types of crankshaft or camshaft position sensors: magnetic pick-up coils, Hall-effect sensors, magneto-resistive element (MRE) sensors, and optical sensors.
Inductive sensors have the simplest construction and are usually purely passive devices. Hall effect and magneto-resistive sensors have the advantage over inductive sensors in that they can detect static (non-changing) magnetic fields. Optical sensors do not have great resistance against fouling but are able to provide the most precise edge detection.

Disadvantages or Problems of Fake/Bad Phase sensor
The first sign of phase sensor failure, usually, is the refusal of the engine to start when hot but will start again once the engine has cooled.
- A bad phase sensor can worsen the way the engine idles or the acceleration behavior.
- If the engine is revved up with a bad or faulty sensor, it may cause misfiring, motor vibration or backfires.
- Acceleration might be hesitant, and abnormal shaking during engine idle might occur.
- In the worst case, the car may not start.
