    Default Hello - need bit of help

    Hi
    My vectra had bit of hiccup friday night and had to call RAC out, anyway long story short, a light came on the dash with spanner through it, by time RAC got me home light had gone out, still took it to garage who ran it through diagnostics and said it came up with fault code PO011 and said it was the camshaft defazer.
    The light has subsequently went out and stayed out, but would like to know bit more about this, the garage said it could have been a glitch but to dry it and see.
    What is a camshaft defazer, is it expensive

    Any help be appreciated and yes I am a woman

    It's probably caused by a faulty camshaft sensor - the sensor tells the car's brain which position it's in as the camshaft rotates. Shouldn't be very expensive; they fail on many makes of car.

    The sensor might just need a quick clean
